By: Sherri Welch, Posted February 4, 2022
Aimee Nimeh, CEO of domestic violence shelter Haven of Oakland County, has resigned.
Nimeh had led the Pontiac organization since 2018. “We have done so much amazing work over the past several years, yet the events of the last two years have propelled me towards evaluating my goals and re-prioritizing my time to focus more on my family and their well-being,” she said in a statement.
“It has been my honor to serve an organization that means so much to me and has impacted countless others over the years,” Nimeh said.
Haven has named Emily Matuszczak, senior program director, interim CEO while it conducts a search for a new top executive.
“We thank Aimee for her years of service to HAVEN and for her dedication and skill in helping the organization to navigate during a global pandemic,” Haven Chair Kristin Christ said in the release.
“We look forward to Aimee’s support in the future on a volunteer basis and wish her well in her future endeavors.”
Haven provides shelter, counseling, advocacy and educational programs for more than 30,000 survivors and family members each year.
During the pandemic, it added virtual programs to continue providing support.
In 2019, under Nimeh’s direction, Haven teamed up with Training and Treatment Innovations Inc. to launch a new transitional housing program with wraparound support services for Oakland County survivors.
