Job Description:

The Fall River Deaconess Home is seeking a strategic and visionary Executive Director to join our highly respected nonprofit organization located in Fall River, MA.

The Organization

The Deaconess Home was founded in 1893 to offer underprivileged women a safe and nurturing environment. Since its inception, the Deaconess Home has shared the value of community with young women and has provided education, recreation, vocational training, and a place to call home. Medical, psycho-social, and psychiatric services were added in 1941, and in the 1960s Deaconess opened its first site for group home services. Today, the Deaconess Home is a vibrant agency which provides cutting-edge comprehensive treatment services to young women ages 11-22 and their families to maintain their safety, reduce the need for crisis intervention, and strengthen interpersonal and daily living skills.

With an annual budget of $7 million, our programs include:

Residential Treatment: We provide individualized therapeutic interventions and a range of services, including education for residents to increase productive and pro-social behavior, improve functioning and well-being, and return to a stable living arrangement in the community.

Group Living Services : This program enables individuals who need additional support to regain, maintain, and improve life skills and functioning in a safe, stable, community-based living arrangement

Family Support and Stabilization Services: Our goal is to improve family functioning, increase child and family safety and well-being, to reduce the need for Department of Children and Families intervention and separation of children from their families, and to ease the transition to reunification following out-of-home placement.

Our dedicated staff team numbers nearly 100. The Deaconess Home fosters a culture of excellence and improvement and is currently undergoing formal accreditation through the Council on Accreditation (COA). See www.deaconesshome.org .
