With 8 years of experience working with Youth, and having been raised by a social worker, Brendan is a natural fit for the Found Village team and their approach to their work with Cincinnati area youth. Originally from Colorado, Brendan attended high school in Cincinnati and moved to New Orleans not long after graduation. This is where he began working with youth within the non-profit sector and gained valuable experience to kickstart his career. Brendan found himself back in the Cincinnati area several years later where he continued his work with youth in the non-profit/social service sector. When he discovered Found Village and their unique, long-term approach to their work, he was thrilled to become a part of the team. “This is the approach I wish I could have taken with the youth in my previous jobs!” Brendan’s experience has allowed him to truly understand the importance of solid, long-term support in a young person's life. When not at Found Village, you will find Brendan dabbling in his various artistic pursuits, riding his bike around town, or hanging out with his dogs.
