On April 12, 2016, William Dionne, Executive Director, The Carter Burden Center for the Aging, officially celebrated his 25th Anniversary of leadership at a reception held in his honor  at the Carter Burden/Covello Center at 312 East 109th Street in East Harlem and hosted by the Board of Directors.

Dionne was recognized for his 25 years of action, achievement and innovation as a champion of seniors by a prestigious group of guests including Board members, volunteers, colleagues and staff.  Speakers included: Donna M. Corrado, Ph.D., Commissioner Department for the Aging; Gale A. Brewer, Manhattan Borough President; Lilliam Barios-Paoli, former Deputy Mayor under Mayor de Blasio; Stephanie A. Raneri, Executive Director, Isaac H. Tuttle Fund; The Carter Burden Center Board Chair, Jeffrey A. Weber;  Susan L. Burden, founding Board member, and Velda Murad, Associate Executive Director.  Nina Saxon recognized Dionne’s accomplishments with a proclamation letter on behalf of New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer.

Dr. Donna Corrado presented a commendation letter from Mayor Bill de Blasio stating, “We have an important responsibility to improve and protect the health, safety, and wellbeing of all residents regardless of age, and throughout your 25-year career at Carter Burden, you have helped us fulfill this promise and bettered the quality of life for many across our city.  Under your leadership, The Carter Burden Center for the Aging has continued to grow and expand its vital programming and advocacy, making a positive difference in the lives of seniors and their families in the five boroughs.  I am delighted to join in recognizing your commitment to forge a better and brighter future for seniors in our city and far beyond. On behalf of the City of New York, please accept my best wishes for a wonderful anniversary celebration and continued success.”

When Dionne joined the agency in 1991, there were 1,500 NYC seniors being served, 25 volunteers and one senior center on the Upper East Side.  Today, there are over 5,000 NYC seniors being served, with a robust, dedicated team of 3,500 volunteers, and 3 additional senior centers in East Harlem.  He continues to advocate for seniors on various issues and is especially passionate about Day Programs for seniors with low- to mid-level dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

In addition to East Harlem, there was a series of celebrations throughout the agency in honor of Dionne for his generosity, leadership, compassion and vision with a focus on the impact he has made on countless seniors, as well as the community.

Since joining the Carter Burden Center for the Aging in 1991, Dionne has instinctively developed best practices and led the agency on a journey of partnerships and mergers that has expanded their work and embraced new and innovative projects - like the Carter Burden art gallery in Chelsea that features professional re-emerging artists aged 60 and over (2009); and a hybrid, first of its kind Metro East 99th Street adult day program (2014) which supports low-income tenants onsite.  These seniors are Medicaid and Medicare beneficiaries living with multiple chronic physical and mental health illnesses.  

His guiding principle is to launch and sustain programs to support the efforts of older people to live safely and with dignity and stay engaged in the community in mind, body and spirit.  Programs include Community Elder Mistreatment & Abuse Prevention Program (2003), Making Art Work (2009), and Caregiver Resource Program (2015), to name a few. 

            The Carter Burden Center for the Aging, Inc. is a non-profit agency established in 1971 by the late Carter Burden when he was a New York City Councilman.  The mission is to promote the well-being of seniors, 60 and older, through a continuum of services, advocacy and volunteer programs oriented to individual, family and community needs.  The Carter Burden Center is dedicated to supporting the efforts of older people to live safely and with dignity.  For more information, please visit
