Community Services and Cythera Transition House Society have a new executive director.

Kristy Rogge will be heading up both organizations after current executive director Vicki Kipps retires in mid-May.

Until then the women will be working closely together to prepare Rogge for the transition into her new role.

“I am thrilled with the Board’s decision to bring Kristy in as our new executive director,” said Kipps.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Kristy and I can’t say enough about her integrity, work ethic and dedication to our clients and colleagues; she will do amazing things,” added the outgoing head.

Rogge has extensive background in social services program development, implementation, and evaluation and most recently served as the director of operations of Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Community Services, where she has worked for the past 25 years.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors I want to congratulate Kristy on her new position of Executive Director. Her many years at Community Services, her knowledge and experience are going to be a huge asset and we are looking forward to working with her as Executive Director,” said Lisa Begg, Community Services board chair.

Tish Scoffins, board chair for Cythera Transition House Society said she is excited to see Rogge step into the role.

“Kristy’s commitment to the team that she has been a part of for many years will serve us and our clients well as we move forward. We welcome Kristy to her new role, and we look forward to working more closely with her,” said Scoffins.

Community Services has been serving the communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows since 1971, helping more than 22,000 people locally through the 32 programs and services for all ages and genders.

Cythera Transition House Society, a refuge for abused women and children since 1984, was transferred under the umbrella of Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Community Services in May last year.
