The Network extends its heartfelt well wishes to Joanne M. Oplustil on her recently announced retirement and resignation from the Network Board of Directors on which she has served for an impressive 14 years. 

Under Joanne’s visionary leadership, CAMBA evolved from a modest one-person operation focused on revitalizing the Church Avenue commercial corridor with a budget of only $50,000, into one of Brooklyn's foremost community-based social service agencies. Today, CAMBA boasts a budget of nearly $200 million, a staff of 1,800 employees, and more than 180 programs that serve over 73,000 individuals annually across areas such as economic development, education and youth development, family support, health, housing, and legal services.  Joanne’s remarkable journey and unwavering commitment to service have left an indelible mark in our community.

“Joanne’s contributions to our board have been invaluable, drawing from her nearly 46-year tenure as President and Chief Executive Officer of CAMBA." says Pascale Leone, Executive Director of the Network.  

"We will miss Joanne’s insight, leadership, and wit immensely. As she begins her well-deserved retirement, we celebrate her extraordinary accomplishments and wish her all the best in her future endeavors." says Brenda Rosen, Network Board Chair and Breaking Ground's CEO. 

Please join us in thanking Joanne for her extraordinary contributions and wishing her a happy and fulfilling retirement.
