Center’s leader named

Habitat for Humanity executive Nancy Brady has been named president of Neighborhood House, the service center on St. Paul’s West Side for immigrants and the poor.

She is replacing Armando Camacho, who left the job last winter to take over Opportunity Partners. She will start June 2.

For eight years, Brady was vice president of resource development and communications for Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, where she launched a campaign to battle the foreclosure crisis and brought former President Jimmy Carter and Rosalynn Carter to Minnesota in 2010 as part of a Habitat work project.

Brady was capital director for Neighborhood House from 2003 to 2006, when she led the campaign to fund the Paul and Sheila Wellstone Center.

“The mission of the organization is in my heart,” she said.
