Chief of Staff
Green & Healthy Homes Initiative | Baltimore, Maryland
The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) seeks a nonprofit professional with exceptional decision-making skills, content area expertise, and personal integrity to join its team as Chief of Staff. GHHI is known as a leading organization addressing the social determinants of health, opportunity, and equity through the creation of healthy, safe, and energy-efficient homes. The Chief of Staff will play an essential role in the continued ability of the organization to deliver on its priorities and respond to new strategic opportunities.
Founded out of a grassroots volunteer effort to eradicate childhood lead poisoning in Baltimore, GHHI was tasked by the White House in 2008 to lead national efforts to integrate lead hazard control, healthy homes, and weatherization and energy efficiency work. GHHI continues to play a leadership role in the creation of key legislation that ensures improved health, economic, and social outcomes in historically disinvested communities. In addition to its national-scale advocacy work, GHHI provides local direct services, contributing to the delivery of healthy homes for families and individuals in twenty-four states and Washington, D.C. The scope of GHHI’s impact ranges in scale from building healthy homes to influencing national policy, and all of GHHI’s efforts aim to improve the health and well-being of people and families.
Reporting directly to the President and CEO, the Chief of Staff will provide strategic direction to all program and operational functions at GHHI, with oversight of the organization’s $15 million budget and 54 employees. With a core team of five to seven senior staff reporting directly to them, the Chief of Staff will ensure that GHHI has the organizational structures, processes, and personnel in place to further advance the mission and respond to new opportunities. The Chief of Staff will support the development and delivery of programs and services, find efficiencies in administration, and maintain clear channels of communication to deliver the exceptional outcomes that GHHI is known for. The Chief of Staff will also function as an ambassador for the organization, representing GHHI with donors, public and private funders, board members, and elected officials as well as with staff and leadership.
