Maxine Reddy, MS. Ed., LMHC joined the Sanctuary Institute at ANDRUS on February 1, 2012 after nearly 15 years at Green Chimneys Children’s Services, one of the first large organizations in New York State to achieve Sanctuary Certification status. As a director of community-based programming, Maxine has first-hand experience and knowledge in assisting organizations with implementing the Sanctuary Model in the community as well as in residential settings. Seeing how cultures can change and shift to provide improved outcomes to both clients and staff, serves as an inspiration in her work helping other organizations implement the Sanctuary Model. She has been providing training in the Sanctuary Model and concepts since 2008. Maxine’s current focus is on organizational leadership and development and she is currently conducting research on the implementation of the Sanctuary Model for her doctoral dissertation.
Maxine currently serves on the Advisory Board of the Putnam County Youth Bureau and has served as a board member for Putnam Family Support and Advocacy and the Dispute Resolution Center in New York State.
Maxine is an active volunteer for Cornell Cooperative Extension assisting youth in becoming our leaders of tomorrow through the 4-H program. In addition, she is a New York State certified mediator and has provided training through the Unified Court System for Family Court in New York, as well as the Common Sense Parenting curriculum to organizations and families.
