Nancy Brady returns to St. Paul’s Neighborhood House as president

Nancy Brady is returning to St. Paul’s historic nonprofit Neighborhood House as its new president.

She’ll start June 2. Brady has been working at Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity the past eight years as Vice President of Resource Development and Communications.

Before that, she’d part-time capital campaign coordinator in the fundraising effort to build the the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Center for Community Building, which is Neighborhood House’s home on St. Paul’s West Side.

Neighborhood House has operated as a social service agency for 117 years and is best known for its aid to St. Paul’s many waves of immigrants from many countries.

Sally Scoggin, chair of the Neighborhood House board of directors, said in a statement:

“(Brady) is a mission driven, results-oriented leader with a deep commitment to partnering with individuals, families, and communities seeking to create brighter futures.”

Brady replaces Armando Camacho, who left last year to head Opportunity Partners, the Minnetonka-based nonprofit that provides services for people with disabilities.

    My hearty congratulations to Nancy!

    It is wonderful to hear that Nancy will be leading Neighborhood House. During my tenure at Neighborhood House, I brought Nancy in as a part-time capital campaign coordinator to assist on the private fundraising effort with a goal of $7.5 million after we had achieved our fundraising goals from the government sector ($5 million from the City of St. Paul, $5 million from the State of Minnesota, and $10 million from federal government.)

    Nancy was a strong asset to this effort led by Co-Chairs Eileen McMahon and John Scanlan and me. She supported our efforts ably and very professionally. She built off my efforts and those of our Development staff to develop with us a common grant application for the campaign and she managed our deadlines and application process superbly. She supported our fundraising asks that the three of us completed.

    It is great that she will bring her fundraising expertise that she has further developed at Habitat for Humanity to Neighborhood House. The organization has unfortunately never returned to the annual budget level it reached in 2006 and 2007.

    I wish Nancy the very best in this challenge for all the communities that Neighborhood House is privileged to serve.
