Kurlene Smith-Cambridge

Kurlene Smith-Cambridge joined Catholic Charities in 2022. She has worked for more than a decade in the social services field.  Kurlene was previously a Director for a Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NORC)  in New York State and was instrumental in developing the entire program from the ground up.  She implemented core services such as case management, case assistance, health care assistance, health care management, and evidence based programs to promote independence and healthy aging. Older adults were able to combat isolation and depression since they were connected to various programs and vital services.

Kurlene finds joy in enriching the lives of others by providing quality program and services that aims to combat loneliness, depression and isolation. Her favorite quote is “ Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
