Roles & responsibilities

See the full scope of responsibilities here:


• Competitive candidates will bring a track record of excellence in senior leadership positions, ideally from other complex nonprofit human service organizations.

• The CEO must demonstrate an ability to recruit, develop, inspire, and collaborate with a diverse staff. Excellent relationship-building skills and success in forming strong community partnerships are also essential.

• The CEO must have a solid understanding of effective, forward-looking fiscal management. Familiarity with the process and accountability required for government funding is strongly preferred.

• Demonstrated successful experience in fundraising, program development and board relations will be highly valued.

• A commitment to applying an equity lens to their work and demonstrated experience centering Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access as organizational values will be important.

• A degree in social work, human services management, public administration, nonprofit management, business administration, or a related field is preferred.
