Sister Joan Kirby

May 24, 1926 -- September 9, 2015

We at UHAB are grateful to have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Sister Joan Kirby, who served on our board for 25 years.  From 1981 to 1984, she was a housing counselor and director of home ownership for Housing Conservation Coordinators.  She then became executive director and president of Homes for the Homeless in New York, 1986-88, before joining our board in 1989.  In 2014, she retired after two decades at the helm of the Temple of Understanding, an interfaith cross-cultural educational organization affiliated with the United Nations.
