Horizon Services, Inc. (HSI) is a community-based Substance Use Disorder (SUD) nonprofit serving three San Francisco Bay Area counties (Alameda, San Mateo and Santa Clara).

The organization has a current operating budget of $8.5M, a staff of 120, a 10-member Board, and maintains very strong relations with funders in the counties in which it operates.

The Executive Director will strengthen HSI financially and operationally, and innovate as the organization delivers critical Substance Use Disorder programs and supportive services. At the core of the Executive Director’s responsibility is shaping an organization that supports those living with SUD and mental health challenges as they:

  • Come to grips with their situation and develop tools that will help them successfully navigate their substance use and mental health challenges;
  • Become as self-sufficient as possible, while leveraging their lived experience to help others overcome similar challenges;
  • Cultivate skills leading to employment, self sufficiency and independence.

Supported by a fundraising oversight Board and experienced staff, the Executive Director will shape an organization that is viewed by government and nonprofit executives across its service region as a leader in Substance Use Disorder treatment and services.
