The Organization for Prostitution Survivors (OPS) was founded by survivors of Commercial Sexual Exploitation (CSE) and allies, to end the violence of prostitution and change cultural norms. OPS provides services in three areas: (1) advocacy, harm reduction and exiting services for survivors, (2) education and training to change cultural norms of gender-based violence, and (3) community training on CSE. OPS provides services primarily to female identified adult and youth survivors of CSE.
OPS centers survivors of CSE. This means that survivor experience is our starting point. We understand intersectionality: at OPS, survivors are not lumped into one homogenous group and have the space to express and embody more than one identity. We create opportunities for survivors to live into their power. At OPS survivors participate indecision making at all levels of leadership (board, leadership team, advocates, board sub-committees, etc). OPS is built upon a foundation of safety, trauma-informed, DEI and strengths-based policies and practices and it is on this solid ground that we uphold our values of celebrating difference, unconditional positive regard, a growth-mindset, self-care and accountability.
The Development Manager / Development Director is responsible for the development and successful execution of OPS’ fund development strategy to achieve the organization’s objectives and advance our mission. The Development Manager / Development Director builds relationships with donors and grantors by matching those with the means and motivation to give, to the needs of the organization so that the important services OPS provides to survivors of CSE can continue to be offered to our community.
The Development Manager / Development Director will manage and sustain a grant portfolio of government and private funded grants of nearly $1MM. OPS strategic objectives are to diversify funding streams to increase individual and corporate contributions (and earned income) over the course of the next three years. The incoming Development Manager / Development Director will play a key role in the planning and successful execution of this strategy.
If hired in the more senior role of Development Director, this person will serve as a member of OPS Leadership Team with the Executive Director and Director of Survivor Services. The Leadership Team sets and implements the organization’s strategic plan, budget, and internal organizational policies that uphold OPS mission, vision, and priorities. The Leadership Team works together to ensure that service delivery needs and human resource requirements are matched to the organization’s fundraising strategy.
