Family Promise’s next CEO will build upon a strong foundation created in partnership between the national team and a vibrant community of Affiliates, staff, volunteers, and families, following the departure of a successful leader. This moment calls for an inspirational leader with a deep passion for ending family homelessness, a vision for driving sustainable growth and impact, an aptitude for fundraising, and a commitment to collaborative, agile, performance- and mission-driven leadership. With the support of an engaged board and talented, diverse staff at both the national and Affiliate levels, this is a tremendous opportunity to lead a movement at scale to end family homelessness.


Building on the foundation of more than 30 years of building brighter futures for families facing homelessness, the next CEO will lead Family Promise into a new era of growth and evolution. The CEO will engage immediately with the following leadership opportunities:

Leadership, Vision & Culture

Family Promise has made significant strides toward the achievement of its 2019-2023 strategic plan. In concert with the Board, the CEO will assess how far we’ve come, and lead development of the next strategic plan, including strategic investments. Providing inspirational leadership and direction across the team, the CEO will ensure continued development and management of a professional and efficient organization and establish effective decision-making processes that will enable Family Promise to achieve its long- and short-term goals and objectives. Given that Family Promise has had only two leaders in its history, there is a deep need to honor and leverage the collaborative culture and core values of the organization, and for the next CEO to bring their distinct and effective team-building experience to take the organization forward.

Affiliate Impact, Strategic Growth & Sustainability

Working collaboratively with staff and Board members to implement the new strategic plan and vision for the future, the CEO will build on the current momentum to provide integrated programs of the highest quality to families across all Affiliates, balancing consistency and responsiveness to local needs. They will drive plans to continue diversification of Affiliates, increase the number of people served in prevention and stabilization programming; strategically grow Affiliates through expansion, incubation, and acquisition; and leverage Family Promise’s broad and deep national resources to maximize Affiliate performance and success.

The CEO will also identify and drive progress toward new partnerships and opportunities for national influence, technology integration, and data-driven programmatic refinement. In partnership with the Family Promise community, they will work to enhance organizational culture, support staff retention and professional growth, and ultimately – and most importantly – mission success.
