Mayor Bill de Blasio just tapped this former head of Catholic Charities Neighborhood Services in Brooklyn and Queens to lead New York City’s Department of Aging.
Ms. Corrado kicked off her career with Catholic Charities as an older adult program director before working her way up to chief operating officer.
As a 22-year member of the Catholic Charities community, she brings to her new position our legacy of rebuilding lives, always with compassion and dignity.
Ms. Corrado said her focus would be making the city a better place for the aging where almost a quarter of senior citizens live at or below the poverty line – even with social security benefits.
“This is unacceptable,” she said. “Our seniors deserve not only respect, but the care and support of our city agencies.”
Watch this video of her appointment now.
