Search Facilitated by Nelson/Kraft & Associates Inc. for New Hope Community Services Society
New Hope Community Services Society (New Hope) works hard to assist refugee claimants and vulnerable new immigrants by addressing their housing needs and by providing a sense of community. Their mission is to see these individuals become integrated, interdependent and productive members of Canadian society. In addition to providing community-based housing, they also connect residents to established local resources for social, personal, spiritual, educational and vocational support, and offer on-site assistance when appropriate. To date, New Hope has helped over 500 women, men and children from over 60 countries.
Reporting to the New Hope Board of Directors and under its strategic direction, the Executive Director (ED) is responsible for the successful leadership and management of the organization. The ideal candidate will have a passion for helping refugee families and vulnerable new immigrants, and have the influential abilities to rally church, community and government leaders and volunteers in supporting these families with both resources and compassion.

Therefore, the Executive Director will need five or more years of senior-level non-profit leadership experience, advanced education (a Master’s degree is preferred), superior operations and budgeting abilities, successful fundraising experience, and will demonstrate personal qualities of integrity, transparency and Christ-like character in keeping with New Hope’s groundwork and values.
