Welcome to Our New President and CEO Sunnie Johnson-Lain

For over 60 years, Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County (CSSW) has offered impactful care that honors the dignity of the persons it serves. Offering an array of services, including Behavioral Health Services, Senior Services, Adoption and Foster Care, food assistance, and services to persons who have been incarcerated, CSSW seeks to share Christ’s love and presence through acts of compassion and mercy.

Sunnie comes to CSSW with over 15 years of experience with faith-based nonprofits. Serving most recently as the Chief Services and Strategy Officer for St. Vincent de Paul-Cincinnati, she believes that her life’s work is to help others to grow in their faith through service. With an educational background in Theology, Pastoral Ministry, and Values-Based Leadership, Johnson-Lain oversaw the significant expansion of St. Vincent de Paul’s services in both Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio. She has experience leading Social Services, Parish-based outreach, Workforce Development, and Re-Entry functions, as well as strategic planning and stewardship efforts.

“I am incredibly grateful to Peg Bravo, who served as CSSW’s President and CEO before me, for her leadership. CSSW is well positioned to continue to grow and thrive because of her work and thanks to the wonderful staff and volunteers who work together to serve with passion and excellence every day.”

“There is a great need in our community for the services that we provide. With God’s grace, and the continued support of our community, we will continue to grow and be able to serve more people with these needed services, while identifying how we might serve in new and relevant ways, always with the same care and quality that we are known for.”

Welcome to CSSW, Sunnie!
