In Honor of Pastora San Juan Cafferty
One of our dearest friends and colleagues Pastora San Juan Cafferty passed away April 16th, 2013. Ms. Cafferty was a mentor to many influential corporate leaders, non-for-profit leaders, and educators throughout Chicagoland and abroad. Ms. Cafferty was our largest individual donor to the endowment fund and her family was a great support to our Adult Wellness Center. Pastora was a respected Social Service Administration professor at the University of Chicago for 34 years, holding a master’s and doctorate in American Literary and Cultural History from George Washington University. Colleagues would describe Pastora as fearless in the face of obstacles, and deeply devoted to the needs of others. She has left an immense mark on both face of history as well as in our hearts.
"Mrs. Cafferty was especially interested in services for seniors and was a major contributor to the organization's endowment fund...she was a contributor to Casa Central who believed in our mission and was a strong supporter", said Ann Alvarez, for whom Mrs. Cafferty was a friend and mentor.
