The Sexual Assault Crisis Team and Safe Passage Shelter is recruiting for a Chief Operating Officer who will lead this not for profit agency into the future. The agency provides gender inclusive emergency shelter and transitional housing, legal advocacy, medical advocacy, crisis services, and prevention education to address sexual violence in the broader community. Our services are designed to meet the needs of all survivors and are also available to all non-offending family members. Safe Passage Shelter accepts all genders (cis and trans).
The Chief Operating Officer needs to have a grasp of the issues surrounding sexual violence, human trafficking, and the needs of the survivors. The COO will direct the work of the paid and volunteer staff and be the liaison to other organizations. A person skilled in both direct service or advocacy, human resource, fundraising, accounting, and legal implications of our work would be ideal.
The COO answers to the Board of Directors and works closely with the President of the Board. Candidates should possess compassion and tenacity. Those with an advanced degree in social work, legal degree, SANE RN, or other systems leadership would be preferable. Previous experience with sheltering would be a very helpful.
