Rosselli steps down as Raleigh community services director

The director of the city’s community services department is leaving to join a nonprofit in Durham.

Kristen Rosselli spent nine years with the city, including the past three as head of a department that oversees neighborhood programs, youth and senior activities, and Hispanic and Latino outreach. Her last day is Monday.

Rosselli will take the new position of chief strategy officer for TROSA, Triangle Options for Substance Abusers. The residential substance abuse recovery program provides treatment, job training and continuing care.

The City Council paused during its last March meeting to recognize Rosselli for her near-decade of service.

Dwayne Patterson, supervisor of the Neighborhood Services Division, will serve as acting community services director.
