Help Now! Advocacy, a non-profit organization founded in 2004, is looking to expand its leadership on the board of directors as the organization transitions its nationally-unique services from being largely local (Oregon) to national in scope.

Those interested should visit the organization's website: helpnowadvocacy.org for more information about the unique services Help Now! Advocacy offers.

The ideal applicant for the board will have outstanding professional credentials, including top or upper level management positions (current or prior), a significant history of civic and/or non-profit involvement, professional and/or personal connections within his/her network that will serve to promote the organization both financially and through enhanced awareness of its services.

This is an opportunity to become part of an organization that, given the services it provides, is on its way to becoming a national presence over the coming years.

Required: resume and cover letter detailing specifics of your background and how those tie into your interest in joining the board.

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.
