Coalition to Shelter and Support the Homeless
The Coalitioin to Shelter and Support the Homeless has a new Executive Director to lead our organization. Please welcome Mae O'Brien. Mae has had years of experience in leading nonprofits, and is well acquainted with the local non-profit community and local governmental leadership as well. Mae has been able to hit the ground running as our 2021/2022 Code Blue season approaches.
For over 30 years, Mae O'Brien has worked in the nonprofit sector in fund development and executive roles for health-related, social service, and academic organizations. Most recently, she served as the Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County and HealthLink, a free clinic serving the working poor in Bucks and Montgomery counties. In November 2016, The LaSalle Nonprofit Center placed Mae as the Interim Executive Director of A Woman's Place. A new Executive Director was identified and Mae transitioned out of the organization after a ten-month tenure. She also served as an Interim Executive Director for Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge until an executive director was appointed.
She is a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE ret) and earned Lean 1 Certification. In her various roles, Mae has developed expertise in resource development (fundraising), planned large-scale system-changing initiatives, built sustainable comprehensive community collaborations, facilitated strategic planning processes for government agencies and various nonprofits, and conducted board development sessions for nonprofits and educational institutions.
