Farewell to Joe and Miriam Adler

July 25, 2017


Last month, we bid a bittersweet farewell to longtime NNORC Residents’ Council member Joe Adler.  Joe and his wife Miriam are relocating to New Jersey to live closer to their two sons and their families.  Joe was a devoted and faithful NNORC Residents Council member through the years, frequently advocating, passionately and effectively, for our community members with disabilities and mental health issues.  Joe also played a vital role in the committee that drafted our NNORC Blueprint for the Future, a document we continue to consult as we plan programs and services for the NNORC community. All of us on the council, who have come to know Joe as a friend, will miss his gentle presence, thoughtful contributions, and playful sense of humor.

And we would absolutely be remiss if we did not mention that Joe’s “better half,” his wife Miriam, a former executive director of Jewish Family Services, was instrumental in the original NNORC application process and in getting this invaluable program off the ground.  The NNORC community owes an enormous debt of gratitude to both Adlers. Our very best wishes to Joe and Miriam in their new adventure!
