Sister Donna Hawk: March 12, 1943 - January 28, 2015

Sister Donna Hawk was one of the four sisters from the Congregation of St. Joseph who founded Transitional Housing Inc. (now Front Steps Housing and Services) in 1986.

She served as the Executive Director for many years and continued to stay connected to Front Steps, even speaking at the Home for All Ball in November 2014. 

Sister Donna dedicated her life to serving those who were most vulnerable, especially the homeless population. Her knowledge, compassion and tenacity to "get the job done" touched many organizations throughout the Cleveland area. 

Our community has greatly benefited because of Sister Donna Hawk. May she rest in peace.
