Joseph’s Home Announces Resignation of Executive Director Christine Horne

On behalf of Richard C. Gallagher, board chair, Joseph’s Home

The last four years have been a time of great excitement and growth for Joseph’s Home and our mission to care for medically frail homeless men. As you are an important partner to this ministry, I want you to be among the first to know that Christine Horne, having successfully served as executive director of Joseph’s Home since 2015, has accepted a new position as senior director of business intelligence and strategy at the Catholic Charities Corporation of the Diocese of Cleveland. Christine will remain in her active leadership role until Friday, July 26, which is her last day with Joseph’s Home.

I am pleased to share that Heather Stoll, vice president of external affairs at the Sisters of Charity Health System, will be adding interim executive director duties of Joseph’s Home to her role. Heather has been integral to the leadership of this ministry since 2013, when she took on administrative oversight of Joseph’s Home and Building Healthy Communities, which are both ministries of the Sisters of Charity Health System.

We extend our gratitude for Christine and her leadership of Joseph’s Home. During her tenure, Christine introduced the medical respite program model to carry forward our mission. Joseph’s Home now delivers these evidence-based clinical best practices. She has also built an integrated model of care that includes primary care, behavioral health and social services. Most importantly, Christine has compassionately supported many acutely ill homeless men in their journey of healing and achieving long-term self-sufficiency. Together with the Joseph’s Home board, Christine led our current strategic planning processes, which will position us for long-term growth and sustainability.

Throughout the coming weeks, Heather and the Joseph’s Home board will work together to transition leadership of this ministry to its next executive director. Heather and I look always extend an open line of communication with you and your team. Please join us in wishing Christine the very best at Catholic Charities.
