Camacho stepping down as head of St. Paul’s Neighborhood House

He’s been president of nonprofit Neighborhood House since 2008; he will become president of Opportunity Partners.

Armando Camacho will step down as president of St. Paul’s nonprofit Neighborhood House and will become the new head of Opportunity Partners, the Minnetonka-based nonprofit that provides services for people with disabilities.

Camacho, who has been at Neighborhood House since 2008, has led the organization through the recession to recent growth in services and a balanced budget.

Eric Levinson,  Neighborhood House Board Chair, said:

“Our service to the community has grown, our financial stability has increased and we have an incredibly capable staff. This is an amazing accomplishment given the ‘new-normal’ economic environment for non-profits.”

Neighborhood House, a St. Paul landmark since 1897, has helped many waves of immigrants and low-income people to stabilize their lives.

Opportunity Partners serves 1,900 people with disabilities each year, helping them find employment, residential and training programs that will help them live more independently.

Armando will start the new job Jan. 13. Opportunity Partners Board Chairman David Bares said:

“I’m excited about his strong interest and experience in working with people with disabilities and his proven leadership skills in both the human services and educational arenas.”
