Executive Director

Jennifer Brady joined the Oasis family as Executive Director effective February 2, 2015, possessing 27 years experience working in the non-profit sector. 

Most recently, Jennifer served as the Director of Fund Development at Help from People to People, Rockland County, NY, where she doubled fundraising revenue to help ensure that thousands of food-insecure families could put food on their tables. She was an integral member of the capital development team at the Museum of Television and Radio, which raised $50 million for a new building. She was also a founding staff member of the Hudson Valley Children’s Museum where she worked for seven years.

Jennifer is a graduate of Douglass College, Rutgers University and attended the Polytechnic of Central London. 

Jennifer has been a member of the Oasis Board of Directors since 2004, and has served as President of the Board for the past four years. Jennifer believes deeply in the mission of Oasis and in the power of its programs to change the lives of women and children. “Oasis is a very special place, one where you can see first-hand how you can affect the lives of the poor among us. You only need to walk through the halls of Oasis to feel hope and change at work in Paterson.” Her knowledge of Oasis programs and services and expertise in fundraising will be a tremendous asset for Oasis.
