Executive Director for first-ever national advocacy hotline

ORGANIZATION: Help Now! Advocacy Center

  • 3 people are interested

Help Now! Advocacy is now searching for a new executive director who will lead the organization as it continues to transform itself from a local organization that has served 9300+ clients over the past 18 years into a virtual and national organization now offering our services through the first-ever national advocacy hotline for individuals and families in crisis. (A national phone company has donated the hotline and all services associated with it to our organization.)

The individual we are seeking for this position must have significant and successful prior experience as executive director of a non-profit. or as CEO/president of a substantial for-profit entity. Preferable experience would be in overseeing the expansion of the non-profit or business entity. He or she must also be a creative visionary with personal charisma and impeccable credentials. This is an exciting and unique opportunity to get in on the "ground floor" of a unique social service that has the potential to impact the lives of great numbers of Americans.

While we are looking for an individual who has the ability to work without pay for a period of time as funding is procured for the position, we also expect this to become a fully paid position with benefits within a reasonable period of time with pay growing as the organization grows. Applicants should be clear that, while the magnitude of their contributions as a volunteer ED will be a strong consideration when a determination is made by our board of directors as to who fills that paid position when available, their volunteer ED work is not a guarantee of assuming the paid position. That said, our organization is thoroughly professional and is not looking to take advantage of anyone. It is fair to state that an outstanding performance, as perceived by our board, in the volunteer ED position will give the applicant for that position an "inside track" on the paid position.

About Help Now! Advocacy Center

Location:

virtual organization, MEDFORD, OR 97501, US

Mission Statement

Help Now! provides advice, support, and skilled negotiations to assist individuals and families in crisis.

Description

In a nutshell, Help Now! performs critical crisis intervention for individuals who, because of financial, educational, intellectual, emotional, or cultural disadvantages, are unable to work through the crises they are facing on their own. Although we will help anyone who requires assistance, our focus populations are seniors, the disabled (including mentally ill), and minorities--populations that, due to factors endemic to these groups--frequently are unable to work through crisis situations as they arise. Our assistance may involve our trained advocate's solving the problem or resolving the dispute for the client, or it may, by assisting through "system navigation," involve our referring the client to another individual or organization uniquely positioned to address the client's problem or dispute. The network of "community partners" which we have established--professionals, businesspeople, and trades people, will frequently assist our clients at minimal or no fee in support of our philanthropic work. Help Now! is supported by donations and grants--we do not charge our mostly indigent clients any fees for the services we provide although they are free to make donations if they choose.
