CEO & President, St. Joseph Fund

Interim Chief Mission Integration Officer for South Division, Providence


St. Joseph Fund (SJF) CEO & President Gabriela Robles has a deep sense of purpose that drives her to contribute to the overall health and well-being of our communities. Just like the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, she believes that every individual must be healthy for communities to thrive. She carries that purpose and belief system into her work at SJF.


We invite you to read this article that Gabby submitted to Health Progress, Journal of the Catholic Health Association of the United States. In it, she delves into why and how community power-building rests upon the foundational principles of inclusivity, cultural competency, and empowerment.


Throughout Gabriela’s time with SJF, she has helped transform conventional grantmaking and created a shift toward organizational power-building. Read more about her strategies and her purpose in Community Power Building: A Fresh Approach to Wellness.
