A House on Beekman
New York, New York
A House on Beekman (AHOB) is a $2.7m faith-based nonprofit that exists to help close the opportunity gap for children in the South Bronx. They believe that a child’s zip code should never limit his or her ability to dream about the future. A House on Beekman offers programs that support children and youth through all stages of their development. They are here for the long haul and provide a “cradle to career” spectrum of programs. They currently have 23 full-time and 10 part-time staff. AHOB envisions a South Bronx in which children are equipped to live out their God-given potential.
A House on Beekman seeks a transformational leader to become their Executive Director and take the organization into the next chapter of its growth and impact. With oversight of strategy and fundraising, this person will build a strong, impact-focused team while supporting existing staff in their flourishing; ensure the organization meets the diverse and complex needs of the surrounding community; and cast a big vision for their future. This person will be both a visionary and a pragmatic, get-it-done kind of leader with a huge heart, strong will, and deep belief in the power of place-based programs to have transformational impact. This is a unique opportunity to take the reins of an organization with tremendous potential and to lead it into a robust future that retains the key ingredients of its success to date while also beginning a new chapter.
