The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness (CCEH), a coalition of members and communities throughout the state that creates change through leadership, advocacy, and building the capacity of members and the field to respond to environmental challenges, seeks nominations and applications for its next CEO .
Founded in 1982 as a membership organization by staff and volunteers of homeless shelters in response to increasing homelessness, CCEH has grown into a multi-pronged operation that represents the voice of the homeless assistance frontline; advocates for resources, policies, and public support to end homelessness; offers training and support to help providers implement best practices; and leads statewide data collection and analysis to enhance efforts to end homelessness. The overarching mission is to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut. In executing this work, CCEH works closely with the Partnership for Strong Communities and other stakeholders engaged in Connecticut’s statewide coordinated campaign to end homelessness, Reaching Home.
This is an exciting opportunity to lead an organization now representing more than 75 members – emergency shelter providers, housing providers, community and business leaders, and strategic partners – who share the goal of ending homelessness.
Reporting to an 14-member Board of Directors, the CEO will lead the organization in its mission to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut. The CEO will set the strategic direction of the organization, in support of members and all frontline providers of homeless services in Connecticut, and to advance the continued evolution of the Connecticut homelessness response system.
The CEO will be an inclusive, adaptive leader with a breadth and depth of experience in human services and homelessness across a range of issues in the sector.
