The Boulevard (formerly known as Interfaith House) was founded in 1994 to respond to the critical need for respite care for the homeless. These individuals need a place to heal and the opportunity to move to stable housing. The Boulevard is the only organization in Chicago, and one of few in the country, that provides a full range of respite care resources for holistic human healing for the homeless.

The Boulevard seeks a Chief Executive Officer who is deeply committed to providing homeless services and offers hope to those whom it serves.

The ideal candidate:

  • Will be a passionate, motivated, mission-driven, teamwork-oriented and focused leader with vision to support and build upon the accomplishments of The Boulevard and who aspires to lead the organization to the next level.
  • Will possess well-developed administrative skills, including fiscal responsibility and discipline, change management, human resource management and staff development.
  • Will have an understanding of healthcare provision today and current government initiatives in homelessness, healthcare and social services, including familiarity with medical respite.
  • Will demonstrate experience with social services and a familiarity with the Continuum of Care.
  • Can speak from the heart about the needs and unique strengths of the organization, and must have a compelling public presence in serving as the primary face of the organization.
  • Will have the skills to become a conduit for ideas and innovation with policy makers in order to cultivate meaningful relationships that have a mutual goal of addressing homelessness and developing new, creative opportunities to address affordable housing.

The next Chief Executive Officer will lead a one-of-a-kind agency that fills a critical and urgent need to care for people who have been discharged from the hospital with nowhere to go and who, otherwise, would face the streets as they attempt to heal from a serious illness or injury. The Boulevard has built a stellar reputation in the Chicago area and nationally, and it has had a profound and permanent positive impact on more than 9,500 people’s lives.  With support and care from an exceptionally committed team, more than 90 percent of residents complete their medical recovery plan.

Reporting to the Board of Directors of The Boulevard, the CEO is responsible for the overall leadership and growth of the organization to ensure delivery of the highest quality services, while safeguarding and growing its financial resources.

Requirements include a Bachelor’s degree from a four-year college or university; a graduate degree is preferred. Prior CEO or Executive Director experience is strongly preferred.

To apply, please send a current resume and letter of introduction to Kittleman & Associates, LLC at https://bit.ly/3MtUcKR (click on the Apply button at the bottom of the page).
