Siobhan Dennehy is the Executive Director of the Emerald Isle Immigration Center (EIIC). Since her appointment in 2003, the agency has increased the budget, staffing and programs significantly, the most significant of which are social service programs, the services provided to their non-Irish clients and the current capital campaign underway for the Bronx building renovation. The center has been able to add two attorneys, several bilingual immigration counseling staff, a full time social worker, and a senior case worker to meet the needs of the clients served. Mental health counseling from qualified psychotherapists in the area of Depression and Alcohol and Drug Abuse, a daily delivery of 40 Meals on their Meals on Wheels Program and ESL classes for non native English speakers are other center service program enhancements. The center sees clients from a wide spectrum of nationalities (75+) and has added to the ranks of multi lingual staff to support the clients who continue to seek EIIC’s help. The agency has maintained a stellar reputation in the community for the front line immigration and social services it provides to immigrants from all around the world, through the hand-picked team of staff and a growing base of volunteers in both offices in Woodlawn and Woodside.
Elected by her peers from the CIIC (Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers in the United States) Dennehy served as Treasurer, Vice President and President; she continues to represent the EIIC at CIIC board level.
Siobhan has received many honors and awards over the years from multiple organizations, including most recently in January 2019, when Siobhan was named as Aide at Large to Brian O’Dwyer, the 2019 Grand Marshall for the NY City 2019 St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
This event is hosted by Past President Niall O'Leary.
