Brad Allen Reubendale – Executive Director of SAME Cafe
He has many years of experience working to deliver quality programs to under-resourced people. His history includes Urban Peak, a nonprofit which addresses youth homelessness, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a program to advocate for children in foster care, testifying at the Colorado Capitol on behalf of foster children and LGBTQ youth, and being a youth pastor.
Brad has a Bachelor in Psychology/Criminology from Missouri State University, a Master of Divinity from Denver Seminary, and a graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management from University of Colorado Denver, but the most important education he ever receives is when he shuts up and listens to other people’s experiences.
Brad lives in in Denver with his husband Michael, kittens Kiki & Phillip, and step-dog Bandit, where he happily walks, bikes, or busses everywhere.
