May 6th, 2019 – Jewish Family Services of Ottawa (JFS) is pleased to announce the appointment of Sarah Caspi as its new Executive Director. After an exhaustive search by the Board of Directors Search Committee, with the assistance of an executive search firm, Sarah’s candidacy proved to far exceed benchmark standards.
Ms. Caspi holds an MSW degree from Carleton University and has worked for the agency as a clinical social worker since 2003. Consistently excelling in her position, she rose to the level of Associate Executive Director in 2012, providing input on all aspects of the agency, as well as managing a large staff. During her tenure, Sarah has built the confidence of coworkers, senior management colleagues, the Board, as well as municipal, provincial and federal stakeholders that support the work of JFS.
