HARLEM — East Harlem advocacy group Union Settlement has added two new directors to its staff.
The group, a social service provider in East Harlem, hired Susan Puder as the Director of Development and Communication and Joy Pittman as the Director of Human Resources, it announced last Thursday.
“Their expertise and dedication will be invaluable to the East Harlem community,” said David Nocenti, the organization’s executive director.
Puder was formerly one of the directors of the nonprofit Sanctuary for Families. Pittman previously worked as a manager at START Treatment and Recovery Centers.
“[N]o other organization can match the breadth of Union Settlement’s programs in this neighborhood and it is an honor to be part of its great work,” Puder said.
The organization, based at 237 E. 104th St., claims to be the third-largest employer in East Harlem with a staff of more than 400. It was founded in 1895 and works with immigrant and low-income families to provide social services and educational programs.
