I am writing today to share the news that I will be retiring as Executive Director of the Melville Charitable Trust at the end of 2019, and to let you know that we are launching a search process for our new leader. I invite you to review the job announcement. We’d appreciate your help sharing it with talented candidates in your network. If you know someone who would be a great fit for the role, please encourage them to apply using the instructions in the announcement.
My career in the field of housing and efforts to end homelessness spans 33 years, seven of them at the Trust. Leading the foundation has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. The Trust’s passion for justice, innovation, pushing systems, and staying focused on solutions is a powerful mix that keeps me energized, challenged and eager to come to work every day. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to work with our incredible staff team, exceptional board, and amazing nonprofit partners who are relentless in their work to make homelessness a thing of the past.
The decision to retire is not an easy one but reflects the confidence I have that the foundation is well positioned for the future. I plan to stay in place until a new executive director is identified and brought on board later this year and look forward to ensuring a seamless transition.
As always, it’s an honor to work in partnership with you as we strive to ensure that everyone has a good place to call home.
