A native of Palermo Sicily, Rosa immigrated to the United States with her family at the age of five. Raised in San Francisco, she embraced the American lifestyle, learned the English language and adapted to her new surroundings. Rosa’s strong sense of family and community has increased her passion to make a difference in the life of others, leading her towards the counseling and social service field for over 30 years. She joined Catholic Charities Aging Support Services in 2006 as a case manager and soon after was hired to assist with the Community Living Fund (CLF) pilot program where she remained for over six years as intensive case manager. Currently as program director, Rosa, supervises Catholic Charities Aging Case Management, Aging Disability Resource Center services, and Catholic Charities OMI Senior Center.
