The Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness has appointed Frank Cirillo, the current director of the Mercer County Board of Social Services, as its new executive director.
“Frank Cirillo brings a wealth of experience and a proven commitment to the task of ending homelessness; the board feels there could be no better candidate for the job,” said Clifford Goldman, chairperson of the Mercer Alliance board. Cirillo was recognized as a Champion for Change by the White House in 2012 for his work on redesigning the system of family homelessness in Mercer County.
A 1971 graduate of Rider, Cirillo has a long history of service in the public sector as an administrator and elected official. He has been employed by the Board of Social Services for 43 years and has served as its director since 2004. Cirillo is past president of the County Welfare Directors’ Association of New Jersey, the New Jersey Child Support Council, and currently serves as an appointee to the Governor’s Interagency Council on Homelessness.
He served on the Trenton City Council from 1991 to 2002 and served as Council president from 1999 to 2002.
“Frank’s leadership will make the Alliance stronger and our mission to end homelessness in Mercer County a reality. He will be no stranger to the Mercer County social service and business community,” Goldman said.
