Arlene joined Keystone Opportunity Center in September 2017. She brings to the organization decades of experience in the nonprofit world. She has served in leadership positions in nonprofit organizations such as social service agencies, disease fighting charities, arts organizations and community centers in Pennsylvania and New York City. She has worked locally, nationally and internationally, managing Executive Directors in chapter offices across the US, leading advocacy and lobbying efforts at the state and federal levels, building creative community alliances that advanced all involved and shepherding organizations out of debt. Prior to joining Keystone, Daily was the Executive Director of Mayfair, Inc., which had accrued debt for 15 year before her arrival; within 4 years she brought the nonprofit back into the black.
Arlene’s spare time is often spent in community-building volunteerism. She helped launch an award-winning annual interfaith day of service, inclusive of people from Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and other religious traditions. She organized a community health fair that provided hundreds of vulnerable community members free medical screening and health information from scores of agencies. And she organized a social justice sign up event at a Martin Luther King Jr Day interfaith service. She sees her work—both professional and volunteer—as a chance to make the world a better place while creating unity among people by inviting them to work together in that effort.
