Jason (Jay) Brown has been named as the new Chief Executive Officer of Commonwealth Catholic Charities (CCC) effective January 5, 2019.
Brown’s selection comes after the retirement of Joanne Nattrass who led the organization for 12 years. Brown has been employed at Commonwealth Catholic Charities since 2010 as the Director of the Office of Justice and Peace and most recently as the Division Director of Housing Services. He has led the expansion of CCC's Housing Services over the last five years. After an extensive search, CCC's Board of Directors recommended Brown to His Excellency, Bishop Barry Knestout, who concurred with their choice of Brown to lead CCC in its current efforts and future growth.
“It is humbling to be chosen to serve Commonwealth Catholic Charities and the Diocese in this new capacity,” says Brown. “I am truly excited to continue to work with such talented colleagues here at CCC as we seek out and serve the most vulnerable members of our communities. My hope is that we remain an instrument of God’s mercy and hospitality, as we continue to be a statewide leader in the provision of professional social services to all people, regardless of faith.”
