NCCH Appoints New Chief Operating Officer
North Coast Community Homes’ Chief Financial Officer, Michelle Marshall, has accepted the opportunity to become North Coast Community Homes’ next Chief Operating Officer, effective January 1, 2017. Current COO, Bill Bray, will continue with his present responsibilities until his retirement at the end of the year.
Michelle has consistently delivered high-impact results for NCCH since 2008. She is very familiar with North Coast Community Homes’ different operations, operations staff, board, and priorities. Over the past eight years, Michelle has “moved the needle” in the finance area in various ways including: integrating systems to improve NCCH’s communications and reporting, supporting continuous operational improvements and cost reductions, and upgrading our credit rating. Michelle’s relationship building successes with partner agencies have been crucial to NCCH’s ability to deliver on its mission.
Prior to joining NCCH, Michelle served in finance and accounting roles for companies including those involved in construction and property management. She earned both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration as well as a non-profit management certification.
Suzanne Seifert, NCCH President and CEO, is excited to partner with Michelle in leading NCCH forward and growing the organization’s future.
Big Crowd Supports Local Charity's World Record Attempt
A large and enthusiastic crowd gathered Sunday, August 28th, to support a Guinness World Record attempt for the benefit of a leading Northeast Ohio charity. North Coast Community Homes, which since 1984 has developed more than 200 homes for 1,000 men and women who have disabilities, staged Ride for the Record in the parking lot of the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park.
While the new Guinness World Record for most motorcycles started simultaneously was not achieved, members of the riding community helped raise more than $70,000 during the six hour event which included live performances by The Spazmatics, stunt riders and motorcycle displays, beer and food vendors, raffles, prizes, and giveaways.
“Although the world record was not broken, we consider Ride for the Record a success in every way,” said Suzanne Seifert, President & CEO of North Coast Community Homes. “So many more people are now aware of the vital services we provide to the most vulnerable people in our Northeast Ohio community, and we are deeply grateful for their participation and support.”
Seifert and NCCH Life Trustee Ian Abrams accepted a $22,000 check from Quaker Steak & Lube, Presenting Sponsor of the unique event. They also thanked the Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park, other generous sponsors, and the many volunteers who contributed their time to make Ride for the Record a success. Plans for another attempt at the world record of 1,446 motorcycles in 2017 are already underway.
Those who were not able to attend this year’s event can still support the mission of North Coast Community Homes, which has developed and maintains homes for people with disabilities in more than 60 cities in six Northeast Ohio counties, by visiting ncch.org/donate.

2016 NCCH RubberDucks Outing
It was an unforgettable and completely enjoyable evening on Saturday, June 18, for more than 170 mental health consumers and other guests in Summit County, as they were treated by North Coast Community Homes to a night out at Canal Park on Main Street in downtown Akron.Organized by NCCH, and supported by foundations and individuals, the event brought residents from nearly all of NCCH’s 21 homes throughout Summit County, as well as men and women from Reymann House, The Commons at Madeline Park, Tarry House, NAMI, Community Support Services, and other agencies.
The evening began with chartered buses picking up the guests from their homes and apartments, and dropping them off at the door of the Duck Club, the private luxury loge at Canal Park. There they were treated to dinner, soft drinks, a great game between the Akron Rubber Ducks and the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, spectacular fireworks after the Akron victory, and a bus ride right back to their homes! Our mental health residents tell us it’s an evening they look forward to all year, one that helps them get out into the community and become more a part of it, and we here at North Coast Community Homes are happy to meet their expectations. Go Rubber Ducks!
