Happy New Year! It is with great pleasure that we share the exciting news that the search for our next Community Leader has led us to welcome Rochelle Von Hof to L’Arche Erie! Rochelle will officially take the helm mid-January and we hope you will join us in welcoming her aboard.
Here are a few words of introduction from Rochelle:
A warm hello to you all!
I am grateful to join the L’Arche Erie family. I am a lifelong resident of Erie County and my husband and I currently reside in Fairview. We are both excited and look forward to being a part of this beautiful L’Arche community for many years.
My background includes extensive experience in the mental a behavioral health sector, primarily in the non-profit setting. I am passionate about providing responsive, innovative, and inclusive servant leadership to support L’Arche Erie to meet the needs of community members and partners, to grow, and to respond to challenges we may face along the way. I find great joy in supporting personal development and growth, and encouraging creativity.
My approach to community life can be summed up best with a quote from Pat Wadors: “When we listen and celebrate what is both common and different, we become a wiser, more inclusive, and better organization.”
I feel privileged to be joining you and look forward to spending time with you all soon.
