It is with deep sadness that we share news of the death of our Board Member Joe Singleton. He fully accepted his responsibilities as a Board Member for the past 8 years. He brought his steadfast commitment, intelligence, generosity and humor to all of our gatherings. We will miss him dearly.
Born and raised in Mt. Kisco, New York, Joe spent 51 years in the field of education. A proud husband, father and grandfather, he served as a teacher, program administrator, Assistant Superintendent, and Deputy Superintendent, and assisted many Districts in Nassau and Suffolk County as a consultant, interim Assistant Superintendent, and Superintendent. When joining the board, he explained "I joined Mercy Haven to help some of the most underserved residents of Long Island who have been bypassed by government and society."
We are proud and excited to announce that Mercy Haven has been named as one of two Long Island recipients of Bank of America’s Neighborhood Builders Award. This award includes $200,000 in flexible funding over two years and leadership training for our Executive Director, Sister Pat Griffith, and an additional staff member whom we recognize as an “emerging leader.”
Bank of America’s Neighborhood Builders program provides grants and leadership development to nonprofits, and helps them build a stronger presence in their communities. This investment builds on the company’s philanthropic commitment to help address community development, basic human services, workforce development and education.
Mercy Haven received the prestigious Neighborhood Builders Award after a competitive, invitation-only application process. The award recognizes Mercy Haven’s contributions to the community as a provider of housing and support services to those who are homeless and living with mental illness.
We are so proud to share this touching, inspiring and heartfelt book with our supporters and friends! Sister Pat’s intent to spend time with residents in a community of caring, sharing and reflection evolved into a compilation of stories, poems and art driven by their experiences of living with mental illness. "...You'll find in their work an invitation to visit some of the hidden parts in your own heart, as I did, and to see life 'Through Their Eyes'..." - Sister Pat
