EDEN Celebrates the Legacy of
Chief William Denihan

We at EDEN mourn the passing of Chief William Denihan. His impact on the northeast Ohio community will serve as a lasting legacy to his commitment to being an agent of change and compassion.

As the former CEO of the ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County, Bill was a tireless advocate for mental health and addiction services, and was tremendously dedicated to improving the lives of the most vulnerable members of our community. Bill’s career in public service was unparalleled, as was his devotion to his family, friends, and colleagues. His leadership and close partnership with EDEN has enabled the agency to expand its reach, and provide housing and related supports to thousands of households.

Smokestacks by Bill Denihan, part of the gallery exhibit at the Levin College of Urban Affairs, Cleveland State University. We will be forever grateful for his legacy. Most recently, we have been so honored and delighted to witness Bill’s “retirement gig,” combining his two passions—painting and people—as he mentored consumer arts students, at one of his favorite spots, Future Directions Peer Support Center owned by EDEN.

A collection of his artwork, “William M. Denihan – The Art of a Change Agent,” will take place Thursday, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at CSU’s Levin College of Urban Affairs. His paintings, often part impressionistic part realism, captured his love of Cleveland—and the people that make it special.

Cleveland.com provides more information about Bill and his incredible work at Bill Denihan, ‘consummate administrator and public official,’ dies at 85, William Denihan remembered as a true public servant who didn’t shy from a challenge, and ‘The Art of a Change Agent’: Bill Denihan honored Cleveland with a lifetime of public service -- and gallery-worthy art.

He was the best example of mankind. He was humble, devoted, tough and resolute, but always kind and compassionate.

- Roland V. Anglin, Dean and Professor at Levin University
