A few weeks before the pandemic, Little Brothers was completing a 2020-2023 strategic plan with the ambition to review and implement a better adapted support offer for lonely and isolated seniors, to reach more of them, and to better accompany them for the rest life ahead.
Two years later, while we have just gone through a global crisis that has greatly impacted us and that continues to do so, we are pleased to announce that Caroline Sauriol has been appointed Executive Director of the Little Brothers Foundation and that Martin Goyette has joined the organization as Executive Director of the Little Brothers Corporation. This new executive management team will continue to lead the operations of both our entities in pursuit of our mission.
In the coming months, their combined strengths will be put to work to support our staff and volunteer teams so that they can continue to do what they do best: bring dignity and joy to Québec seniors.
Yet, we will need our entire community to pursue this dream and undertake the daunting task of significantly impacting the lives of over 10,000 seniors by 2030.
Notice of Appointments
As part of this change, Caroline Sauriol, who has served as Executive Director of Little Brothers since 2009, will now serve as Executive Director of the Foundation. In this capacity, she will be dedicated to ensuring the financial development of the organization, its outreach, and its sustainability. Among other things, she will be responsible for the organization’s public and government relations, as well as philanthropic relations with key partners.
In order to optimize the concerted action and impact of the regional teams in the field, Little Brothers is also pleased to announce the arrival of Martin Goyette as the new Executive Director of the Corporation. His responsibilities will include the management of human and material resources as well as the planning and optimization of operations and support programs for seniors. Previously, Martin Goyette held the position of Executive Director at the Institut Pacifique and at the Dr. Clown Foundation.
What this news means to you
Like you, our greatest desire is to bring comfort and dignity to the elderly. This reorganization will solidify the organization’s structure and serve as a springboard for a broader set of social and policy initiatives aimed at breaking down the isolation of seniors. This allows us to look forward to the future with confidence for the greater good of our Great Friends.
