After opening our first crisis homeless shelter in 2011, the CCHC now serves the homeless population of sixteen counties in and around Clark County. We are among several organizations in Kentucky that serve those experiencing homelessness, offering support that ranges from meeting basic needs through street outreach to connecting people with temporary shelter and permanent housing solutions.
Through our programs, we work to provide a supportive atmosphere where accountability and compassion go hand in hand. Our residents are encouraged to gain additional skills required to save money and plan their future plans.
The Executive Director serves as the leader of the CCHC and serves as a liaison between the Board of Directors, the community, our clients, staff, and volunteers. The position reports directly to the Board of Directors and manages a staff of six full-time employees and two part-time employees and oversees a current annual budget of $1.2M.
The Executive Director will have the opportunity to expand upon recent federal grant funding increases and engage the community and individuals with innovative approaches to support the homeless population. The Executive Director is expected to uphold the mission and values of the CCHC while promoting its goals throughout the community and advising the Board of Directors in making decisions that serve the best interest of the CCHC and our clients.
