Last Friday we learned that following a thorough search and interview process, the Sununu Youth Services Center has filled the position of Director of Operations. As of tomorrow, April 8, Brady Serafin will serve in this capacity moving forward.
Brady brings to the position the breadth of 21 years of experience as an employee of DHHS/DCYF and 10 years of management/supervisory experience.
His career with the agency began as a child protective services worker in Manchester. He then moved onto working with juveniles as a juvenile probation and parole officer and most recently has served as a supervisor for juvenile justice field services staff in the Manchester District Office.
He has a reputation for being a creative thinker, responsible, reliable and working closely with agency stakeholders including law enforcement, courts, residential and community providers.
“I believe Brady Serafin is the perfect choice to be SYSC new Director of Operations,” said Corey Dearborn, Chapter 21 member and long time employee at SYSC. “He’s a hands on employee who will provide the residents and staff with a much needed everyday presence. His 20 plus years experience as an employee of DHHS/DCYF will give him invaluable knowledge of the hard work it takes to successfully operate SYSC. I look forward to working with Brady.”
Brady recognizes there needs to be a consistent presence at the SYSC and continued leadership at the facility that supports the staff, focuses on treatment and not on a corrections mentality. He is an advocate for permanency and the need to assure youth have planned transitions and established connections in order to be successful when they leave the facility. Brady is known for his commitment to making a positive impact on youth and the community.
We congratulate Brady Serafin for his new position.
