After more than a decade as chief executive officer of New Haven Youth & Family Services, Doreen Quinn still found a way to push her organization into new realms in 2010, and plans do the same again next year.
As the CEO of New Haven and its North County Trade Tech High School, she provided education, job training and housing to more than 100 adolescent males. It was her 13th year with the organization. Trade Tech High, a public charter school providing career technical education without districting boundaries, is now in its third year.
Along with 30 community volunteers, New Haven succeeded in delivering its major project this year: fully renovating the oldest of the 12 homes the 30-year-old organization uses to house at-risk youth.
