Nora Reissig

Vice President of Development and Programs

I am the Vice President of Development and Programs responsible for writing and connecting to community. Throughout my career I have been involved in developing programs and policies in the areas of criminal justice, domestic violence, senior services, homelessness prevention, prisoner re-entry, mental health/supportive services, and disaster response; and I’ve sat on various interagency task forces and citywide workgroups to help strategize collaboration models and resource utilization for these various issue areas for the City of New York.  I have 30 years of experience in the field of human services and human rights; 27 years in progressively more responsible positions within NYC government, and 3 years in non-profit organizations.  My years of NYC public service included positions in NYC Department of Correction, the New York City Housing Authority, the NYC Mayor’s Office and teaching Social Welfare Policy at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.
