Welcoming Executive Director, Len Marabella

We are so pleased to welcome our new Executive Director, Len Marabella. Len has been on our Board for several years and served as Interim Executive Director for the past several months while a nationwide search was conducted for a new ED. The search wound up right back at Catholic Charities when Len realized his heart was here with the staff and clients he had come to know during his term.

Asked about the decision, Board of Directors president Joan Maxwell commented, "Len had not put his hat in the ring for the position until he had been on the job for several months. At that point we were midway through the search process. It quickly became clear that Len was the most qualified person for the role, possessing a passion and dedication to the works of Catholic Charities that dwarfed all other candidates. Len has the perfect blend of dedication to our mission and the business acumen and leadership to bring the organization to the next level."

Thank you to all who have responded with thoughts and donations. We even had one child who sent in money he/she (the message was sent by "ananomous"!) collected from selling snow cones! We are working very hard to find the funds to make up this shortfall and continue our work on behalf of homeless men, women, and kids. We will find a way through this, thanks to you.

If you can help in any way, please call 707.528.8712 x159 or email

"I'm certain that there are nearly as many reasons why people volunteer to help others as there are individuals who volunteer. For some it is a need to serve others, driven by faith or personal philosophy. For others it's a way to give back in thanks for the many blessings they themselves have received in life. And for those like me, the reason lies in..." Read More
