Nazareth Villages Inc. is pleased to announce that Nora Ballard has been named as its new President and Managing Director effective March 1, 2012.

Nora will be responsible for directing the operation and providing a supportive community environment for residents of 101 HUD Section 8 and 45 affordable rent apartments.

She succeeds Ann Margaret Boone, SCN, who served in this position since 1991.

For six years, Nora served as a board member for Nazareth Campus Service and recently served as a board member for Nazareth Villages I.

Most recently she was employed at the Nelson Circuit Clerk’s office where she worked with domestic violence victims. She also handled juvenile cases.

Nora has been an Associate member of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth (SCN) for ten years, committing herself to reaching out in compassionate service to others and to living the SCN Mission in her own life.
