DESCRIPTION

St. Jude Community Homes (SJCH) seeks dynamic and committed individuals who are interested in contributing to our well-established supportive housing work in central Toronto by joining our Board of Directors. We are a non-profit, secular (non-religious) organization and our primary focus includes individuals residing in the Regent Park, Moss Park and Upper Beach areas.

We welcome interest from all adults who want to make a difference, especially those with diverse backgrounds and life experiences, and those with a loved one living with serious and persistent mental health or addiction issues. Complimentary additions to our board include skills or interest in: government, integration, leadership and governance, fundraising, marketing and communications (social media), supportive housing, and the healthcare sector.

Our board members commit an average of 5-10 hours a month, including attendance at board and committee meetings, and engaging in committee work and other duties, with the ask to commit to a three-year term. Our monthly board meetings are every 3rd Wednesday (6pm – 8pm), and we adjourn for the summer (July and August) unless matters arise requiring board input and/or decision making.

If you are interested in joining SJCH’s Board of Directors, please send us your letter of interest and resume to VolunteerSJCH@gmail.com. Please tell us about your interests and experience, why you want to join our board, and what attracts you to our supportive housing work.

Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled or until May 31, 2019 at 5:00pm EDT. We will contact all eligible candidates for an interview, and we will ask successful candidates to attend our Annual General Meeting on June 19, 2019 in the early evening. If you require accommodation for the interview process, please let us know when we contact you.

We thank everyone who expresses an interest in SJCH and we regret that we are not available for further individual queries. To learn more about SJCH, please visit our website at www.sjch.ca.
