Women in Leadership Series – Empowering Our Community

Women in Leadership Series – Empowering Our Community: Social, Corporate and Personal Responsibility

All members are welcome to join us for the next installment of Women in Leadership Speaker Series. We are honored to host Sister Mary Scullion, Co-Founder, President and Executive Director of Project HOME, moderated by Danielle DeWeese Ross, M.A., Assistant Director, Anne Welsh McNulty Institute for Women’s Leadership at Villanova University.

Sister Mary Scullion has been involved in advocacy for homeless persons since 1978. In 1989, Sister Mary and Joan Dawson McConnon co-founded Project HOME, a nationally recognized organization that provides supportive housing, employment, education and health care to enable homeless and low-income persons to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.

Under their leadership, Project HOME has grown from an emergency winter shelter to over 800 units of housing. Project HOME also operates the Hub of Hope, an engagement center for those currently homeless; the Honickman Leaning Center Comcast Technology Labs, an education and workforce development center; and the Stephen Klein Wellness Center which provides primary care, behavior health, dental care and wellness services.

Sister Mary has received numerous honorary doctorates for her leadership. She was selected by Time Magazine as one of the “World’s Most Influential People in 2009”. She and Joan McConnon were awarded the Laetare Medal from Notre Dame University.
