Announcing Our Acting Chief Operating Officer
We are pleased to announce the promotion of Nadjete Natchaba to S:US as Acting Chief Operating Officer of Behavioral Health Services, Homeless Services & Veterans Services.
This promotion serendipitously coincides with Women’s History Month and we’re proud to celebrate this win for Nadjete, our staff, and the people we serve. S:US employs a diverse group of hardworking staff members, over 60% of whom are women. These strong, compassionate women dedicate their careers to serving others, and we appreciate them every day.
As a clinician and administrator, Dr. Nadjete Natchaba, LCSW, has worked with people living with mental illness, substance use disorder, and homelessness for over 20 years. Dr. Natchaba began her journey with S:US in 2001 as a student intern and quickly became a full-time employee by taking on a case manager role. Since then, Dr. Natchaba’s work, dedication, and commitment to people served and staff earned her several promotions, culminating in her role of Vice President, Recovery and Treatment Services. She leads a team of devoted clinicians and administrators responsible for programs consisting of Assertive Community Treatment Teams, Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics, Care Coordination Services, Home and Community Based Services, and 24-Hour Congregate and Crisis respite residences.
Dr. Natchaba’s commitment to excellence led her to embark and stay on the quest for knowledge and co-learning. Her latest educational achievement was the completion of Doctorate of Education in Executive Leadership. Her dedication to understanding and supporting our workforce motivated her to focus her dissertation on Evaluating the Effectiveness of Clinical Supervision in the Care Coordination Workforce. Dr. Natchaba also joined the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College as a faculty member teaching fundamental courses in the MSW program to expand her work of preparing our workforce to “show up” for people served. Supporting the workforce at S:US and in the larger community is Dr. Natchaba’s way of living up to her core value of interdependency.
Dr. Natchaba is a true leader and embodies so many of our core values of individual potential, integrity, diversity, and professionalism. Throughout her career at S:US, she has taken on new and complex programming that make her well equipped for this new role.
With Dr. Natchaba at the helm, we will continue to strengthen and enhance the array of supports, services and treatments across our programs in order to help New Yorkers access the care they need.
