The Board of Directors of Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, is pleased to announce the appointment of Cristina DiTomaso as our Interim Executive Director pending the departure of Michelle Hurtubise at the end of the month.

Cristina has been with WOCRC for 14 years and has served in a variety of roles.  In her capacity as Director of Client Services, she has been our lead on our COVID response and has supported on a number of our key strategic projects such as the Four Rivers Ontario Health Team and the work creating a community housing hub at Christ Church Bells Corners.  She brings a wealth of leadership experience in the health and social services sector and is a strong leader to support us during this transition period.  She knows us well and will provide the leadership to support our work in the community in the months ahead.

We have implemented our transition plan.  Our hiring committee has started the process to conduct the search for our new Executive Director. We are feeling positive about the months ahead.  We look forward to announcing our new Executive Director later this year.
