Lisa Piscatelli joined the Attleboro Area Interfaith Collaborative as executive director on March 26, 2018. She is focused on fostering teamwork in the organization’s ongoing efforts to alleviate hunger and inspire interfaith activities. A 14-year nonprofit professional, Piscatelli supports the mission of advancing a healthy, secure and meaningful life for all. She will work together with the board of directors, staff, partners and a core of volunteers in the joint vision of helping others.
Trust, respect and integrity are the noted influences from Piscatelli’s early days at Bishop Feehan High School. In 1991, she received a BS in Marketing from Bentley University. This business perspective meshed with ethical standards became a solid foundation for championing projects relating to gender equality, health and wellness, housing, social justice and youth enrichment.
Piscatelli is an effective communicator. At YWCA Rhode Island, she built greater public awareness of issues affecting minority groups and women. She is especially proud of co-creating She Shines™ Magazine, a YWCA publication celebrating the aspirations and accomplishments of women. It is a 2009 Metcalf Media Award winner, recognizing professional journalists and media that do an exemplary job of showcasing diversity through stories that engage.
On a local level, Piscatelli assists with initiatives in the arts and culture. She is an advocate – recognizing that a rich cultural life plays an essential role in healthy communities, good schools and a strong economy. She is chairperson of the Mansfield Local Cultural Council, in her second term. With active support from its members and positive survey feedback, the council is identifying assets as they explore the concept of a cultural district for the downtown.
A marketing consultant, she has several clients in the arts sector. As a parent of a flutist, she supports opportunities at The Claflin Hill Youth Symphony Orchestra and South Shore Conservatory.
Her roots sprang from Mansfield, Massachusetts – later living, working, volunteering and continuing her faith journey in the Midwest then back to New England – experiencing rural, suburban and urban settings along the way. Piscatelli ultimately returned with her family to, as luck would have it, purchase the home of her childhood.
She is looking forward to meeting with faith-based and human service organizations that serve the Attleboro area – nourishing existing relationships and developing new partnerships. Reach out to her at 508-222-2933, firstname.lastname@example.org or on social media.

Hello! My name is Chris Wall, a pastor at the Evangelical Covenant Church here in Attleboro and I’m helping to plan and lead our area’s annual Homeless Awareness Weekend. We want to invite you and your congregation to join us!
HAW is now in its 11th year raising awareness of the issues surrounding homeless in the area and raising funds to end it. All of the money we raise for the weekend goes to ministries and organizations working to house homeless individuals and address the underlying causes of homelessness.
To do that, local high school students from schools and youth groups spend two nights in the middle of November, the 10th to the 12th, sleeping in cardboard boxes on a field. By experiencing this small slice of homelessness, we’re trying to sensitize ourselves to the needs of people we may walk past every day but not think twice about. After that first chilly night on the field, we spend Saturday out in our towns raising awareness and funds by standing at street corners, asking for donations, and handing out information cards, or serving in soup kitchens and homeless shelters.
This is a unique and challenging experience for both our students and our leaders. It’s an opportunity to address a very real need in our communities and to serve those who need it the most. Would you consider joining us?
We will have an informational meeting at the Evangelical Covenant Church, 841 N Main St, Attleboro, MA, on Thursday, September 28th, at 6:30pm. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact me at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you there!
