One of the Bay Area’s most effective nonprofits dedicated to ending the cycle of homelessness seeks an entrepreneurial, business-savvy, empathic leader to collaborate with staff, the community, and LifeMoves board to:
Develop and drive a new vision and strategy to meet the increasing need for transitional housing while sustaining and improving the quality of LifeMoves services and programs;
Be a strong, visible presence in the community and a voice in the public discourse surrounding homelessness;
Lead a talented, committed team; ensure there are paths for career advancement, ongoing professional development, succession planning; and
Commit to fostering an environment of diversity, equity, inclusion, empowerment and opportunity.
For over 35 years, LifeMoves has offered families and single adults experiencing homelessness a temporary place to call home while providing intensive, customized case management and wrap-around services to help them return to stable housing and achieve long-term self-sufficiency. LifeMoves serves clients at 23 locations in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties and last year, returned 2,000 people to stable housing and self-sufficiency. LifeMoves has a pipeline of bold projects designed to make a visual and transformational impact on the community. Public sector partners are ready to collaborate on new opportunities to grow capacity, and they look to LifeMoves to drive public/private partnerships to support these initiatives. The organization is developing plans for a multi-phase capital campaign aimed at adding crucial flexible capacity in the near-term and new, next-generation transitional housing facilities within the next three to five years. The CEO is the heart of LifeMoves and is an astute leader and manager who must earn the trust of staff and board. The CEO will inspire the team to do their best work, continuously learn, and drive a culture of transparency which will ensure that LifeMoves is strategic, agile and responsive in order to thrive during changing times. The CEO will use data and metrics to strengthen the organization, demonstrate the efficacy of its programs and guide growth opportunities. The CEO will have exceptional human qualities and a reflective posture to meet systemic inequities head-on with the LifeMoves team and in support of the clients it serves. The CEO should have a minimum of 10 years of progressive leadership and management experience, demonstrated success in scaling and strengthening an organization, and a commitment to finding innovative and sustainable solutions to homelessness in Silicon Valley.
