Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens officially renamed its Most Holy Trinity Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Apartments in Brooklyn to the John J. Farrell Residence. The dedication ceremony was held on Tuesday, May 19, 2015, and was attended by Mr. Farrell’s family and friends.
Mr. John J. Farrell is a longtime supporter and board of trustee member of Catholic Charities. He is a former Director of Human Resources of JPMorgan Chase and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. Mr. Farrell joined The Chase Manhattan Bank in 1975 and has held various human resource positions in Corporate Human Resources, Global Banking, and Operations and Systems. As Director of Human Resources, he managed the organizational aspects of three major mergers, including Chase Manhattan and Chemical Bank, Chase Manhattan and JPMorgan, and the 2004 merger of JPMorgan Chase and Bank One. Mr. Farrell is also a board member of the New York Inner-City Scholarship Fund, Inc., Structure Tone, and formerly, he was a member of the Corporate Board of The University of Michigan School of Business Administration.
Originally developed in 1985 and formerly a church-owned property, Most Holy Trinity was one of the first supportive housing residences in Brooklyn. Recently, the residence underwent a major renovation and now provides 75 units of housing for single, formerly homeless adults. It reflects a philosophy that encourages individual self-sufficiency within the context of a supportive community.
