Chief Operating Officer

Chief Operating Officer at Providence House.

Posted: Apr 09, 2014

Location: Brooklyn, NY

Background:

Providence House, Inc. is a faith-based, woman-focused nonprofit organization that helps transform the lives of homeless, abused and formerly incarcerated women and their children - one family at a time. Founded in 1979 by four Sisters of St. Joseph, Providence House’s services and programs today provide shelter and support to more than 160 homeless and formerly incarcerated women and their children daily through its network of 10 transitional residences, individual apartments and permanent supportive housing located in Brooklyn, Queens and New Rochelle, New York. Providence House’s four core values of community, non-violence, compassion and hospitality are the underpinning to all of its programs and its mission of helping its residents break the cycle of homelessness and return to incarceration. Unique in its model of small, congregate transitional facilities, Providence House is still powered by the religious Sisters who founded the organization, many of whom live in the same housing as clients, sharing dinners, providing counsel and acting as mentors in a more intimate experience than what is typical within a more institutional rehabilitation model. Providence House has an annual budget of approximately $4.5m, a senior team of six and a staff of approximately 60.

 

The Position:

Providence House seeks a mission-focused, seasoned, strategic, and process-minded Chief Operating Officer with a minimum of five years in a senior leadership capacity. Reporting to the Executive Director, the COO will lead all internal operations with three direct reports: the Controller, Director of Administration and Director of Programs. He/she will aid the organization in enhancing its infrastructure to deepen services in order to best serve a changing population and to ensure and improve program quality through staff training and oversight.

As a prerequisite, the successful candidate must believe in the core values of Providence House and be driven by its mission. Providence House seeks a candidate with proven experience in growing a multi-site organization and a demonstrated ability to both lead and build the capabilities of a dedicated and diverse team. Experience in managing a “values-driven” organization will be highly prized.
