Ms. Colon currently serves as an adjunct instructor of Latin American and Latino Studies at John Jay College and Lehman College, both part of the City University of New York.

She received a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in urban studies and psychology from Barnard College and a Master of Public Administration degree, specializing in non-profit management and policy, from New York University’s Wagner School of Public Service.

Mr. Gitlitz said, “HRC conducted a thorough search with many highly qualified applicants and we believe we have chosen the right one.”

Ms. Colon has over ten years of experience in the non-profit realm in program development and fundraising. Prior to working at the Carver Center, she was Bronx site director of the Hispanic AIDS Forum, Inc. Earlier she was administrative supervisor of the South Bronx Health Center of Montefiore Medical Center. Previously, she was a grant writer at the Children’s Health Fund in New York City.

She succeeds Mariana Boneo, who resigned in March after three years as executive director, helping HRC achieve record financial support and a position as one of the leaders in the Mamaroneck/Larchmont social service community.

HRC served more than 1,500 clients in the past year. Its primary activities are traditional social services for individuals and families, educational classes and workshops that are occupationally helpful and aid in immigrant integration in the community, and special services for day laborers. HRC has headquarters in St. Thomas Church and educational and day laborer facilities at Strait Gate Church, both in Mamaroneck.

Ms. Colon said she is proud to join HRC because of its proven record of service to immigrants and the whole community. “As a Bronx born Latina, I understand the struggle and needs of HRC’s clients. With the help of the staff and the board, I hope to continue HRC’s impressive progress.”
