Sarah Cheney
Executive Director

Phone: 336-409-3030

Sarah has extensive professional experience in nonprofit management, having held a variety of leadership positions in local and national agencies during her career. Most recently she served on the board of Shepherd's Centers of America.

Her passion to make a difference has led her to work with nonprofit organizations in securing funding for innovative projects that address social and community issues. Sarah has worked for a private hospital foundation managing fundraising and internal and external marketing initiatives. She has served on the leadership teams of two nationally regarded programs of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. First, she was assistant director of an adult day services initiative, providing technical assistance and training to help programs develop and strengthen innovative center-based respite services for people with chronic cognitive disorders, particularly dementia. Then, she was appointed deputy director of Faith in Action, a volunteer caregiving initiative. The largest replication program of its kind, Faith in Action provided grant support and technical assistance to help programs matching volunteers to community residents in need of informal support services.

Sarah holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and a Master of Science degree in Health Administration from Towson University in Towson, MD. Sarah lives in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
