Long-time Catholic Charities Supporter Returns to Serve on its Board of Directors

Catholic Charities is grateful to have Linda Ervin return to serve on its Board of Directors for a new term since her previous time helping to govern the agency from 2009 to 2016.

 “I am returning to the board because I believe in the work that Catholic Charities does to provide for those in need,” Ervin stated. “Their programs to clothe, house, feed, provide workforce training and more for their clients is commendable and I’d like to help in some small way as a boardmember.”

Ervin is a retired real estate broker. In 2010, she was elected as an Onondaga County Legislator to represent residents of the 17th District, a seat she still holds today. She has been a member of numerous Boards and committees, and is a previous 12-year member of the Jamesville DeWitt Board of Education.

In addition to being honored as a House of Providence Award recipient, a special recognition that her husband also achieved, Ms. Ervin has a long list of awards and accomplishments. She received the 2022 Racial Justice Lifetime Achievement Award from InterFaith Works, 2020 Concerned Citizens Pioneer Public Service Award, 2018 NIA Award Dunbar Association Award, and the 2015 Syracuse Youth Chapter, NAACP Image Award.

Ervin’s past experience, advocacy, and passion will be a great benefit to Catholic Charities in the years to come.
