Leadership Changes


After almost three decades of service to Rossbrook House, we say a heartfelt farewell to Maria Vigna. Maria was a teacher at Eagle Circle from 1986 to 2006 where she educated and motivated dozens of teens. Since 2006 she accepted the Co-Executive Director position, working alongside Phil Chiappetta.

Maria has inspired children as well as her peers through her gentle demeanor, kind words and positive outlook. She has been a friend, mentor and teacher. We wish Maria all the best on her new journey, knowing that each one of us is a little bit better for having known her.

In a seamless transition, Phil Chiappetta continues to guide the leadership team in his role as Executive Director, effective April 1st. Phil has been with Rossbrook House for 35 years, first as a youth worker and Program Manager, and since 2006 as Co-Executive Director. His dedication to Rossbrook House is evident in his knowledge of and affection for Rossbrook House.

Rossbrook House just recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. It’s an exciting year filled with changes, hope and inspiration. Watch for upcoming events and announcements here and on the Rossbrook House Facebook page and Twitter feed.
