Biographical Sketch

Sue Costa was born in New York City in 1948 and moved to Rochester with her family as a child. She attended the State University at Oswego; received a BA in Sociology from the University of Puerto Rico in 1969; and received a Master of Social Work in Organization and Planning (MSW) from Syracuse University School of Social Work. Although of Italian heritage, she spoke fluent Spanish and was an impassioned advocate for the Hispanic community and its causes beginning in 1968 when she worked in the first summer program for children at the Ibero-American Action League. She also was intensely interested in demographics and tracked the growth of the Hispanic population at a time when it was burgeoning across the United States.

After college in Puerto Rico, she worked for several Rochester service agencies including the LifeLine Crisis Phone Service as a telephone counselor; the Rochester and Genesee Mental Health Center as a Psychiatric Assignment Officer; the Lewis Street Center and the Frederick Douglas Community Center as a group worker; the Northeast Health Center as a Community Affairs Coordinator; the Wayne County Rural Comprehensive Health Program as the Director of Supportive Services; the Rochester Police Department Victim Assistant Program as the program’s director; and the Urban League of Rochester as a project director. During this time she was also working toward her MSW which she received in 1980.

Also in 1980 she began her twenty-two-year career at The Health Association of Rochester and Monroe County as associate executive director. In 1984 she became executive director and remained in that position until she retired in 2002. The Health Association was a community-based multidisciplinary non-profit human service agency that provided prevention, education, training, case management, advocacy and clinical treatment services to the Rochester region. Services centered in areas including mental health, alcoholism/substance abuse, developmental disabilities, employee assistance, HIV/AIDS, compulsive gambling, outreach/family wellness centers, vocational rehabilitation, LifeLine, sign language interpreting services and training and administrative services to other agencies. After her retirement, Costa worked part-time as executive director of the Rochester Engineering Society from 2004-2007.

From 1978-2007 she also had an active free lance career doing consultant work with agencies and organizations in planning, research, training, motivation, management, program evaluation, grant writing, decision making, leadership skills, diversity and public policy analysis. In 1980 and 1991 she was an adjunct faculty member at the Rochester Institute of Technology in the Department of Social Work.

Furthermore, Sue Costa was politically active, working on several Democratic campaigns including Nancy Padilla’s and the Latino Campaign Committee and championing and teaching in the trailblazing Latino Political Campaign Academy.

Her dedication to helping others and improving her community were legend. She was active founder, facilitator and board or committee member in over sixty organizations. Her contributions of time and expertise to these organizations were prodigious and sincerely lauded.

Sue Costa died in early 2007 at the age of 59 of brain cancer. She left a husband, Juan Navarrete and two children, Alicia and Michael Navarrete.

Series 2: Professional files
Dates: 1968-2005
Physical Description: 1.75 cubic feet
Scope and Content Note:

The freelance work of Sue Costa (and of Susan Costa Associates) as consultant, presenter, writer, professor and demographer is documented in this series. Records include documentation compiled while preparing papers, outlines, reports and overviews; conducting studies, focus groups and surveys; giving speeches and presentations; and teaching courses and workshops.

Some files contain only manuscripts, while other project files contain more complete documentation including graphs, charts, demographic data, notes, drafts, contracts, correspondence, survey implements, survey results, clippings, transparencies and minutes.

The earliest paper included in this series was written in 1968 while Costa was working toward her BA in Sociology. It is entitled, "Something is Dying Here: The New Left Looks at American Society" and illustrates an early interest in "social patterns, the power structure and politics." In her introduction, she writes, "the format of this paper is a study of New Left ideology as expressed by its poets, playwrights and musicians." The outline she created in 1980, "Developing Your Own Theory of Community Development," was for a Hispanic workshop she taught in Newark, NY with Juan Padilla and Julio Vazquez. Photographs of this workshop are in B17F2.

Like this last document, the vast majority of her free-lance work related to the Hispanic community and focused on industrial, economic and neighborhood development; health/social issues such as mental health, alcoholism and battered women; and especially the growth, development and change that occurred within the Hispanic community over a thirty-year time span. During this time span, Sue Costa tracked data in Monroe County, New York (the county where Rochester is located) as the Hispanic/Latino population grew from 5,792 in 1970 to 39,065 in 2000, becoming, according to Costa, the "fastest growing group in our region" and the United States. She relied heavily on demographic research (much of which she conducted herself) and wrote almost exclusively about the Rochester area. In addition to Hispanics and demographics, Sue Costa wrote about community development, needs assessment and diversity and cultural competency. Papers on these additional topics can be found in this series as well.

As an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Social Work at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Susan Costa taught an undergraduate course entitled "Assessing Community Needs" in the spring of 1991. Course materials including the syllabus, schedule and class readings are in B1F26-28.

After a rash of homicides in 2003, City of Rochester Mayor William Johnson’s Office contracted with Susan Costa Associates to do a study that resulted in "Powerful Barriers, Powerful Opportunities: A Study of Homicide Victims During 2003 in Rochester, NY." Files for this project include the following: survey instruments; charts and graphs; research material; preliminary findings; drafts; and correspondence, contracts and project updates.

This series documents the last projects undertaken by Susan Costa, the ABC Charter School Consultancy in 2004 and the ROI (Rural Opportunities, Inc.) Resident Data Project (2004-2005).

B2F21-B3F6 contain HLDP [Hispanic Leadership Development Program] participant surveys and reports (1988-2004). The HLDP presented an annual event designed to educate "tomorrow's Hispanic leaders" during which Sue Costa led a session entitled "Knowing Your Community." Between 15-32 individuals were chosen to participate. Each year, prior to the event Costa distributed surveys for participants to fill out and from the data she collected she created a report which she used to teach data collection, analysis and presentation. The three-page data survey remained the same for these seventeen years. It requested each participant's demographic information and queried their knowledge of and opinions about Rochester’s Hispanic community.

Arrangement: B1F1-B2F19 are arranged in chronological order. B2F20-B3F6 are arranged by subject, then chronologically.

Series 3: Subject files
Dates: 1984-2005
Physical Description: 5 cubic feet
Scope and Content Note:

This series contains files related to Sue Costa's work as Executive Director of the Health Association and to her involvement in numerous Rochester area organizations and agencies.

Under Sue Costa's leadership from 1980-2002, the Health Association grew into a complex and diverse agency serving a wide and varied client population. The Health Association files included in this series document this leadership in the following areas: administration and management (including bylaws, policies and procedures, Employee Assistance Program material and an audit); addiction services (including services for Hispanics, diversity and Hispanic and African American awareness training); board governance; needs assessment; and development and strategic planning. A file entitled "History Stuff" includes material that documents the early history of the association which was founded in 1917 as the Tuberculosis and Public Health Association of Rochester and Monroe County. Several Health Association publications and a cookbook are also included.

The organization and agency files in this series contain, for the most part, the type of documents that would be kept by a board or committee member, including meeting agendas and minutes, reports, planning documents, evaluations, policy documents, member lists and correspondence. Sue Costa was actively involved over the years in the twenty-odd organizations whose files appear in this series.

Of particular interest are the files of Hispanic advocacy groups with which Sue Costa was affiliated. These include AHORA (Access for Hispanics to Opportunities Results in Achievement), the Hispanic Health Coalition and the diversity and end-of-life advisory groups of the Hispanic Health Study. She also belonged to the Planning Committee of the Hispanic Leadership Development Program and to the Ibero-American Action League. The files of the League include an employee handbook and forms, publications, emails about political candidates and their views, letters to the editor and documentation of the Latino Summit.

Sue Costa was a founding and Steering Committee member of the Latino Advocacy Coalition and a founding member of the Latino Alliance. The files of the Alliance include documentation on workshops, presentations and institutes and bibliographies on Hispanic subjects. She was also an enthusiastic advocate for the Latino Heritage Documentation Project (LHDP) and donated her papers to this repository as a result. Her LHDP file is included in this series.

She taught students how to become politically active in her work with the Latino Political Campaign Academy and she served on the Board of Directors and held positions as Corporate Secretary and Treasurer with the Puerto Rican Youth Development and Resource Center.

Sue Costa participated in the Rochester City School District Bilingual Evaluation and the school district's Hispanic Studies Steering Committee. Files of the steering committee include Hispanic Studies Office reports, statistics, presentations, planning documents, recommendations, consensus papers, lists of concerns and progress summaries. She was a founder of the Spanish Action Coalition and an active member from 1978-1998. Files of the coalition include agendas and minutes of early coalition board meetings in Spanish; retreat material; an operational handbook; and documentation of annual conferences and of the organizational restructurings in 1988 and 1999 and of organizational and strategic development. In addition, she was a member of the United Way Hispanic Community Needs Assessment Steering Committee. Files of the committee include survey implements.

This series also documents Sue Costa’s service as treasurer of Nancy Padilla’s election campaigns for Rochester City Council in 1989 and 1993. In 1989, Padilla became the first Latino on Rochester City Council. Campaign ephemera, New York State Board of Elections reporting forms, Fundraising Committee documents and bank statements, supporting material, invoices and receipts are included. Finally, there are a few records that document Sue Costa's term as Executive Director of the Rochester Engineering Society from 2004 to 2006.

Many of the documents are annotated. Handwritten notes appear throughout the series. File titles are original in most cases.

Subseries 2: Source Material
Dates: 1959-2004
Physical Description: 4 cubic feet
Scope and Content Note:

This subseries could be considered to be Costa's research library and contains the source material she referred to in her work as health administrator, consultant, community activist and advocate for Hispanic causes. Also included is material created by the Rochester area agencies and organizations with which she was affiliated.

The subseries contains 226 academic papers, reports (annual, statistical and census), planning documents, studies, evaluations, books, pamphlets, theses, etc. that particularly illustrate her interest in demographics and statistics. Other subjects include: Hispanics, Rochester, community development, health and healthcare, non-profit administration and development, human services, city government and planning, education, violence and substance abuse abatement, diversity and cultural competency, housing, unemployment, youth, politics and legislation, volunteerism, discrimination and human rights.

Authors of this source material include national and state agencies and organizations, but of special interest is the source material created by or for Rochester area agencies and organizations. These include the Center for Governmental Research, City of Rochester, Consortium of Greater Rochester Fights Back, Development Planning Services, Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency, Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, The Health Association, Hispanic Leadership Development Program, Monroe County Health Department, the Rochester-Monroe County Youth Bureau, Puerto Rican Youth Development and Resource Center, Raymond Associates, Rochester Area Children's Collaborative, Rochester City School District, Spanish Action Coalition, United Way of Greater Rochester, Urban League of Rochester and the Western New York Hispanic Leadership Conference.

Also of special interest because they focus on the Puerto Rican community in the Rochester area are two theses: "Puerto Rican Contributions to the Greater Rochester Area" Final Project submitted to the Graduate Committee of the Department of Education and Human Development, State University of New York, College at Brockport in partial fulfillment of the requirements for an M.S. Ed. by Nydia Padilla in December 1985 and "The Construction of Middle-Class Lives: A Study of Puerto Rican Perspectives" by Francisco M. Vasquez, a dissertation submitted to the Graduate School of the University of New York at Buffalo, Department of Educational Leadership and Policy in 2003.

Found unfoldered throughout the collection, the 200-plus documents were gathered together in this sub-series by the processor. The covers of most documents are labeled with the name "COSTA" handwritten in the upper right hand corner. Nine of the documents include written annotations, highlighting and/or underlining as indicated in their descriptions.

Arrangement: This subseries is arranged alphabetically by author.
