Mae O'Brien Joins CSSH as Executive Director

The Coalition to Shelter and Support the Homeless has had a change in leadership this past month. Ify Aduba, our first Executive Director, has moved on from the position. We were indeed fortunate to have Ify serve this past two years. Her experience and skills were invaluable as we navigated the COVID-19 crisis, and the extraordinary challenges it presented to our mission. We offer our heartfelt thanks to Ify, and wish her all the best!

Thankfully, CSSH has found a very experienced non-profit executive to step in and lead our organization without any gap in leadership. Please welcome Mae O'Brien as our new Part Time Executive Director. 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. She was selected to be a member of the first class of Bryn Mawr College’s Nonprofit Executive Leadership Program (NELI).
