St. John’s Home Names New Executive Director


St. John’s Home officially has a new Executive Director. Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York and St. John’s Residence for Boys, Inc. recently announce the appointment of Jennifer Horsley as St. John’s Executive Director. After six months as the Interim Executive Director, she will further her work in a more permanent capacity. According to Little Flower, her experience with teens in the foster care system has been a great asset to St. John’s and will have a positive impact moving forward.

“The board is pleased to have Jennifer as part of the St. John’s family and grateful for the work that she has done with our boys and we look forward to working with her on future endeavors,” remarked Paul Garavente, President of St. John’s Board of Directors.

Chief Executive Officer, Corinne Hammons, added “we are so pleased to have Jennifer continue the work she has started at St. John’s. Her relationships with the residents, staff, and the community are a testament to her outstanding skills as a leader.”

Horsley has over 20 years of experience in the child welfare field, which she began at Little Flower as a case planner. Since then she has steadily taken on more responsibility and greater challenges as a supervisor, director of foster care and the Preparing Youth for Adulthood program and recently co-chaired the strategic plan implementation process.

Horsley is a graduate of Adelphi University, earning a Master’s in Social Work and is a recipient of the first Little Flower Board President’s Award in 2017. She is a long-time Queens resident and currently resides there with her daughter.
