We are pleased to announce our search for the next Executive Director (ED) of Special Kids Special Families (SKSF). This unique opportunity comes at a pivotal point as the Founder and Executive Director of nearly 25 years moves into a new chapter and passes the torch to the next ED to take SKSF into its bright future.
Special Kids Special Families opened their doors in 1998 to provide community support and services to families who are raising youth with disabilities and special needs. SKSF has grown from an idea and community need for providing respite care to youth with disabilities to addressing lifespan issues and providing caregiver resources.
The next season for SKSF will be one of moving from strength to strength, giving the new Executive Director an opportunity to build on a solid foundation. The successful candidate should bring both vision and concrete management/implementation skills commensurate with three primary executive priorities: 1) preserve and promote the SKSF vision and mission with both internal and external stakeholders, 2) successful day-to-day operations and long- term success of the organization, and 3) provide leadership for emerging initiatives that advance the overall goals of SKSF.
Reporting to the Board of Directors the new ED should be a person with a deep love for serving children, families and the community. S/He should have strong management and fundraising acumen, as well as a vision for growth and partnership. Patience and empathy will be critical personal characteristics for the successful candidate as s/he will be expected to lead by example.
