50596598/6/20188/6/201810/19/2018CEOPRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER CHILDREN’S HOME SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON THE POSITION Children’s Home Society of Washington (CHSW) is seeking its next President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to lead the agency in a rapidly evolving world of child welfare theories and practices. It has a long and exceptional history of service, advocacy and best practices for child and family services. CHSW has been a national leader and a key provider of services in Washington State. With a committed Board and a highly skilled staff, it is ready for this transition. It aspires to continue creating and implementing new, innovative strategies to tackle the challenges facing children and impacting all of us as a nation, inspired by the vision of a new CEO. THE ORGANIZATION CHSW is also the only statewide organization in Washington state focused primarily on comprehensive prevention services for children and their families to try to prevent challenges before occurring in the home. CHSW has seen tremendous growth in the past five years resulting in a $26.9 million operating budget for 2018-19 with projected private revenue of 20.3 percent. In spring 2016, CHSW approved an ambitious five-year strategic plan that will see the organization dramatically change again and double in size to $50 million in operating revenue with the goal of at least 25 percent in private dollars. The plan includes establishing seven “hub” locations around the state that provide comprehensive services to children and families. These hub locations will offer the organization’s signature services (Early Learning, Family Support, Child & Family Counseling, and Adoption & Secure Families). Each hub will also provide families connections to employment, education, housing, basic needs, treatment and other needed services through partner organizations. All services in each location will be based on the community’s needs. The hub model provides a streamlined and cohesive support system (“one-stop shop”) for children and families to access various services that meet all their needs. In addition to direct service, CHSW have also made an impact nationally by focusing on partnering with the academic community to develop innovative strategies that improve services for children and families around the country. This has given renewed vitality to the organization. CHSW works with researchers at universities throughout the United States on evidence-based research so that services make a true impact in the lives of children. CHSW has also played a significant role in public policy and systems reform efforts. CHSW’s founder Rev. H.D. Brown drafted the first state law providing legal custody and care of neglect and dependent children. In the past two years, CHSW successfully advocated for the creation of the state’s new Department for Children, Youth and Families and the passing of the Families First Prevention Act, the greatest child welfare reform legislation in the past 25 years. More detailed information about CHSW and its range of programs can be found at www.childrenshomesociety.org CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES In early 2016, the Board of Trustees approved the 2016-2021 Strategic Plan, which will dramatically change the direction of the organization for years to come. The strategic plan outlines the development of the hubs that will streamline systems and processes to best serve children and their families. In the current child and family services field, families struggle to find supports among programs with different structures, regulations, and policies due to limitations set by funders. CHSW wants to break down these silos and address all the challenges facing the family. Transportation, child care, job training, behavioral health, housing assistance and a myriad of other services can make the difference to a family that is unable to achieve stability. We know that if there was a way to connect these many services and supports through a seamless system, and to guide children and families in need, each according to their own unique circumstances, it would make a profound difference. It would put children and families on a pathway toward stability. This is what we aim to do. This will be the mission of our new CEO. BACKGROUND Retiring CEO Sharon Osborne has given 28 years of remarkable and inspirational leadership to this organization. Several years ago, anticipating her retirement, she began a dialogue with the Board, staff, stakeholders, key industry leaders and support organizations about how to provide streamlined services and supports in each community, which we now call the hub. www.childrenshomesociety.org/strategicplan/ We have come to understand that to build this hub, and to achieve the ends we seek, CHSW will have to navigate across the many siloed programs, institutions, regulations and geography that now challenge many of the clients we serve. PREPARATION FOR THE TRANSITIOIN CHSW is a high performing, highly regarded agency, with a healthy culture, strong staff and a board that is well prepared to govern, support change and innovation and raise capital. Ms. Osborne’s long term, effective leadership and management of CHSW has a great deal to do with making it possible to consider evolving in the manner we have described. As CEO, Ms. Osborne has: • been a powerful and singular advocate and fund raiser for CHS to the public, policy makers, funders and the field in general. • She has also been the chief strategist, including in the inception and development of the hub concept. • And she has been the chief program manager, overseeing a highly complex organization delivering diverse program services statewide, adapted to the needs of many local communities and the oft changing requirements of our government funders. If we are to achieve our vision, CHSW needs to adapt as an organization. We believe it will take a team composed of individuals with the diverse skills and experience that touch on the many elements of building and operating the hub, working collectively and overcoming the siloed behavior that constrains the nimble and adaptable services our hubs must deliver. To this end, we see the potential of engaging with candidates with strong strategic, communications, team building, public policy and change management skills and experience, who may not have a deep portfolio in this field. Industry experience is a plus, but these core skills, a long-term view and shared values are the essence of what we seek in our CEO. With such a person, and the team they convene, we believe we can bring about great things and change many lives for the better. ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITY Reporting to the Board of Directors and the Board Chair, the CEO will have overall responsibility for the planning, implementation, administration and management of all agency programs, services and systems. S/he will serve as an advisor to the Board on all agency matters, and can expect the active involvement and support of its members. The new CEO will be expected to work with the Board, staff, funders, policy makers and many stakeholders to enhance and continue the strategic evolution of CHSW. S/he will be the spokesperson for the organization in a wide and highly visible range of situations, providing confidence-inspiring leadership, mobilizing broad based support, and identifying and acting on opportunities for the growth and funding of the agency’s mission. Fundraising, developing institutional strategy, forming external relationships to bolster programmatic, communication and growth strategies and her/his role as the principal spokesperson for CHSW will be central to this role. Working with the senior management team, the CEO is accountable to the Board for assuring that the agency’s activities achieve its service, advocacy, public policy, and performance and outcomes goals. With the support of the senior management team, the CEO is accountable for the fiscal health and management of the agency. S/he oversees CHSW's operating and capital budgets and maintains fiscal control over expenditures. S/ he provides leadership in identifying sources of public and private support for its operations and capital development, actively meeting with potential donors and growing an expanded and robust network of supporters. The CEO must be vigilant in sustaining CHSW's commitment to team building, and must be attentive to internal management within the organization, assuring that all parts of the organization are working toward the same goals. Providing innovative, best quality services to children and their families is at the core of CHSW's mission. The CEO must provide both leadership and management as CHSW intensifies its focus on best practice models of prevention, advocacy and efficient delivery of services, and must act with confidence, knowledge and wisdom on behalf of vulnerable children and families. QUALIFICATIONS CHSW is seeking a CEO who has an unswerving commitment to improving the lives of children - someone who will command respect for his or her accomplishments and inspire broad-based, deeply felt commitment to the advancement of the agency’s mission. Strong leadership, communication, fundraising and decision-making skills are critical to success in this position. While maintaining excellent relationships with government and traditional supporters, the CEO must also expand CHSW’s connection and influence with major donors, foundations, academic and research institutions and the business community. Integrity, strong written and oral communication skills and a passion for this important work is a fundamental requirement. The CEO will be a leader with extraordinary vision, who is able to realize that vision through a rich interaction with the Board, staff, policy makers and those the agency serves. The CEO must have values that are consistent with a culture that is based upon respect, connectedness, entrepreneurship, high ethical standards, and must have a proven ability to encourage teamwork and collaboration among many individuals and organizations. The new CEO must have a sophisticated understanding of the social, education and health care issues facing children at risk and their families. The ideal candidate must have experience working with local and national government agencies, and policymaking and grant making systems, as well as with the leaders in each of these fields. Experience and skills in the management of a large complex agency, and in the effective oversight of finance, human resources, operations and systems, will be key. A minimum of ten years’ experience in a senior leadership role is required. An advanced degree in social services, law, public policy, business or a related field is required. COMPENSATION Salary and benefits for this position are competitive. CHSW is an equal opportunity employer. All applicants will be evaluated on a merit basis.Resumes may be submitted in confidence to: Ford Webb Associates 60 Thoreau Street Concord, MA 01741 Or Email to chsw@fordwebb.comSeattle, WashingtonChildren's Home Society of Washingtonhttp://www.childrenshomesociety.org5059659
