New Executive Director Named

The Arc of Delaware is very pleased to introduce its new Executive Director, Susannah Eaton-Ryan. Susannah joined the organization in 2010, serving as Director of Employment before expanding her responsibilities to also include Outreach and Social/Recreation programs in 2011.

Prior to joining The Arc, Susannah served as Senior Vice President of Operations at The Food Network for more than 10 years, and then as Director of Development at Meals on Wheels. During her time with The Arc, Susannah has rounded out her extensive experience with deep knowledge and broad understanding of the issues affecting people with IDD in Delaware, along with strong community relations and a preference for collaborative solutions.

“I’m pleased and honored to have this opportunity to lead The Arc of Delaware into its next phase,” said Susannah. “Between complex needs in community services, reduced numbers of Direct Support Professionals, and Covid-related restrictions on our social events, the work ahead of us is a huge challenge. But with the commitment and efforts of our members, staff and volunteers, we can and will find clear pathways for people with IDD in Delaware to live, work and enjoy their communities with the supports they need.”
