A Greeting from CORA’s New CEO
“Hello CORA friends, partners and supporters,
I am Karen Ferguson, the incoming CEO for CORA and I want to take this opportunity to say hello!
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years in non-profit humanitarian and social service leadership. I do believe my expertise in cross-cultural clinical psychology and my extensive non-profit, executive-level experience building and maintaining community-based partnerships will be a great fit with the mission, values and work of CORA.
I have spent my career committed to programming and advocacy on behalf of the immigrant and refugee community particularly. My passion for programs aimed at supporting any individual whose home is no longer a safe place has been unwavering. CORA’s mission to eradicate domestic violence is deeply compelling to me and the high-quality, community-based programming is exactly the type of organization to which I am drawn.
The mission of CORA, the impact of COVID and this upcoming transition in leadership will require hard work – but I ready to join the team, and together we will roll up our sleeves and meet these challenges head-on. Not only am I confident in our ability to do just that, – I am excited by what we can accomplish together.
I look forward to meeting everyone as soon as possible!”
