Chief Operating Officer
Shared Hope International
Shared Hope International (Shared Hope) strives to prevent the conditions that foster sex trafficking, restore victims of sex slavery, and bring justice to vulnerable women and children. They envision a world passionately opposed to sex trafficking and a community committed to restoring survivors to lives of purpose, value and choice – one life at a time.
Shared Hope is a $4.28m nonprofit organization, with 22.5 employees in locations on both coasts (9.5 in Vancouver, Washington, 8 in DC, and 5 remote). The Washington, DC-based Institute for Justice & Advocacy leads the focus on policy and training, while the Vancouver WA office hosts the fundraising and administrative teams. They are a well-established leader in the fight against sex trafficking with twenty-three years of experience working to bring about change in laws, policies, practices, and perceptions of the victimization of sex trafficking and the commercial sex industry.
Shared Hope International has a vision to coordinate a national U.S. network of protection to improve the response to victims of trafficking. They aim to create a world where every survivor is surrounded by trained professionals, an alert community, just law and policy, knowledgeable service providers and appropriate shelter options.
To coordinate this effort they desire a highly competent, called individual to become their Chief Operating Officer (COO), located in the DC office. Reporting to the Founder/President, the COO will lead all internal operations of both the Vancouver, WA-based headquarters and the Washington, DC-based Institute for Justice & Advocacy. The COO will be responsible for developing the overall strategy for operations. The new COO will also play a key role with the board in succession planning for the Founder/CEO in the next season for Shared Hope.
