San Jose, CA
m/Oppenheim Associates is assisting Next Door Solutions in San Jose, CA in the search for an energetic, collaborative, movement-driven Executive Director with exceptional fundraising skills to advance the mission of “ending domestic violence in the moment and for all time.” For more information, please review complete Position Description.
What began in 1971 as a hotline and refuge for survivors of domestic violence and their children, today Next Door Solutions is a community leader known for its dedication to teaching women to advocate on their own behalf, and guiding them from crisis to self-sufficiency. The organization is focused on preventing and intervening in domestic violence and is committed to the heavy lifting required to change a troubling reality: that one in four women are victims of domestic violence.
Next Door Solutions serves more than 2700 women and children in Santa Clara County and responds to nearly 15,000 hotline calls annually. It operates with a $2.4M budget generated by government contracts, foundation grants, and individual donors, and has a dedicated and talented staff of 44 and a fully engaged 12-member board of directors.
The agency is proud of its woman-centered, innovative and advocacy-focused culture which extends both internally and externally. The ED will be joining a social justice-minded team that truly loves what they do and cares about each other; an environment that is committed to collaboration and transparency; and a can-do/will-do attitude, particularly as it relates to the organization’s clients.
The Executive Director’s success will be measured by Next Door Solutions’ increased financial sustainability and continued high quality service to meet the changing needs of the community. To that end, the ED will be a fearless and energetic fundraiser, a highly visible and credible member of the community, a tireless advocate for victims of domestic violence.
