Executive Director wanted for the Key Pen Healthy Community initiative

The KPC has been endorsed by the Key Peninsula Healthy Community partnership coalition and the Gary E. Milgard Foundation to assume responsibility for the healthy community initiative. This $150,000 Milgard grant will primarily fund the salary and benefits to employ a full-time Community Partnership Director for one year. The grant will also fund the costs of first year increases in direct services to health and wellness, transportation, and hunger for high need residents.

The Director will have at least 8 years of demonstrated experience in community engagement and partnerships, program/service development, leadership, project and budget management, evaluation and reporting, and fund development.

This one year job requires the Director to work closely with the KPC and the Healthy Community Partnership to build community leadership and engagement; increase direct services to residents in need; assess and report community assets, needs, and gaps; and create a multi-year community action plan.
