New York, NY (PRWEB) October 02, 2015
DOROT is pleased to announce that Ali Hodin-Baier has joined DOROT as Associate Executive Director for Programs, Volunteers and Evaluation. In this position, she oversees DOROT’s distinguished Community Services, Friendly Visiting and Volunteer Services programs as well as its new effort to measure program impact against key metrics.
Ms. Hodin-Baier, who holds a master’s degree in public administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University, has extensive experience working with New York City’s aging services provider network and the nonprofit sector. Most recently, she held a dual role as Executive Director of the Aging in New York Fund, the philanthropic arm of the NYC Department for the Aging (DFTA), and Managing Director of DFTA’s Volunteer Resource Center.
“I am incredibly excited to apply my background in program management and affinity for enhancing the lives of older New Yorkers to DOROT,” she said. “The organization’s mission to foster intergenerational relationships, combat social isolation and serve the evolving needs of the elderly fully resonates with me.”
Prior to her twelve years with the Fund, Ms. Hodin-Baier served as Director of Communications and Public Initiatives for The Glaucoma Foundation supporting patients and those at high-risk of developing the disease.
“I am thrilled that Ali has joined DOROT’s senior management team,” said Mark Meridy, Executive Director of DOROT. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and commitment to the field of aging and a passion for volunteer engagement.”
DOROT, a non-profit organization, alleviates social isolation among the elderly and provides services to help them live independently as valued members of the community. Since 1976, DOROT has served the Jewish and wider community, bringing the generations together in a mutually beneficial partnership of elders, volunteers and professionals. Our work provides an effective model for others.
