Black History Month February 2022: Eric Cora

We are highlighting examples of Black excellence every day this February….and beyond! Feel free to send us suggestions!

Eric Cora has been working for Community Action Pioneer Valley as the Program Manager of their Family Center in Greenfield for the past three years. Most of his duties involves developing and implementing community based programs for families and youth. Eric takes pride in the strength-based & family-centered approach he and his team use to work together with families.

When Eric completed his Social Work degree at Elms College, he was interested in two things: business and social work. When he learned about the opportunity at the Family Center in Greenfield, he knew this is where his professional future would take him. Eric has supported efforts that strengthen families and communities by setting a collaborative tone to build trust between systems of care and community members.

In his spare time, Eric enjoys reading sci-fi novels and cooking. He lives in Holyoke, Massachusetts with his wife Sadie, daughter Alice, and their pet Star the cat.
