Listen: Catholic Charities Leader Moves To Start-Up

This article is more than 9 years old.

There's a change of leadership at one of Massachusetts' largest social service providers.

Catholic Charities of Boston on Wednesday names Deborah Rambo as its new president. Rambo, who's worked with Catholic Charities for 30 years, will now oversee the 140 programs it runs for almost 200,000 people each year.

She takes over from Tiziana Dearing, who's been running the agency since 2007 and is stepping down to run a start-up called Boston Rising, a grant-making organization focused on fighting poverty in the city. Dearing told WBUR's Bob Oakes she's leaving Catholic Charities at a time of growth.

This program aired on June 16, 2010. The audio for this program is not available.
