Company: Nonprofit, Seattle, WA
Location: Seattle
Posted on: June 14, 2018

Job Description:

Founded in 1921, Company is a not-for-profit focused on the well-being of children as they enter, experience, and transition out of foster care. Company puts kids first. Company believes that every child needs the love and support of a family to realize their full potential. Each year Company serves more than 1,500 children and adults through three core programs: Children’s Services, Foster and Adoption, and Post-Adoption. When a child enters foster care, Company provides them with a safe place to land at their Emergency Sanctuaries in King and Pierce Counties. If a child cannot return to their family, Company recruits families on their behalf and then prepares foster and adoptive families through individualized coaching and support. Company recognizes that adoption is a lifetime commitment and continues to be a resource post-adoption for adoptees and those who love them. With support from volunteers, partners, and the philanthropic community, Company is devoted to serving children in foster care and the families who care for them. Company plays a strong role in developing a community-wide effort to improve outcomes for children in foster care, and to increase support for children and their caregivers. Company is proud to work with all families, regardless of marital status, race, religion, political beliefs, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Company was one of the first agencies in the country to facilitate transracial adoptions and adoptions by single and LGBTQ parents. Company is committed to being an active voice for permanence for children in foster care, and directs its communication efforts there. Project Gratitude, a $1 million investment, seeks to extend tangible community support to foster parents while raising awareness of their invaluable work. Along with a 17-member Board of Directors and two county-wide Advisory Councils, a dedicated staff of 63 at their Seattle and Tacoma offices and two Emergency Sanctuaries that help children just removed from their families experience a “soft landing” into foster care, Company programs serve children and families across 12 counties in most of Western Washington. Recognized for its effective services, particularly its use of metrics for clear outcomes to evaluate program success, Company has grown its budget by over $4.5 million since 2013, principally through charitable support. Nearly 85% of its overall revenues come directly from philanthropic contributions deriving from individuals, foundations, corporations, and three signature events. Company is currently engaged in a five-year, $26.5 million Comprehensive Campaign. This transformative campaign will fund a permanent headquarters for the agency, its Emergency Sanctuaries, a strategic effort to recruit more foster and adopt families and provide resources, and an expansion of foster and adopt and post-adoption services. So far, the Company Comprehensive Campaign has raised $15 million, and remains on track to end successfully by 2019. For 2017- 2019, Company established a strategic plan focusing on five pivotal areas: elevate the interests of the child; build and strengthen partnerships; recruit ambitiously; ease and minimize transitions; and confront social justice issues.
