 Overview of HER Resiliency

At HER Resiliency Center, we give young women ages 18 to 25 who are overcoming hardship a safe environment where they can receive the support, skills, and resources they need to make positive decisions and thrive. 

HER emphasizes participants being aware of their own needs, while also receiving guidance as they grow into adulthood. This program is especially geared toward participants sharing their own life experiences, hearing about the path of others, and learning positive life skills through demonstrated healthy living. A crucial component of the HER model is for staff to share their own past struggles and victories in order to demonstrate empathy and understanding toward the participant. Both staff and participants are on a peer level with each other. 

Job Summary:

In this position at HER, the Deputy Executive Director is responsible for managing staff (6-8), providing direct services as a Skills and Strengths Facilitator (case manager), and submitting reports to grantors.

As Deputy Executive Director, you will oversee the Street Outreach Program Manager who works with a staff of three to serve runaway and homeless young women, developing community linkages and resource referrals for underserved and hard to serve youth. You will also provide community outreach to schools, businesses, and other organizations interested in addressing the issue of youth and young adult homelessness and direct outreach to young women/youth.
