Chief Executive Officer

Hiring Company: United South End Settlements
Location: Boston, MA

Job Description


United South End Settlements, an outstanding community-based nonprofit advocacy and services organization, is seeking a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

The Organization
USES traces its origin back to 1891 with the establishment of the first settlement house in Boston and the fourth in the United States. The current organization resulted from the merger in 1960 of five different social service agencies, including that original settlement house, all of which were located in Boston's historic South End. USES' mission is to build a strong community by improving the education, health, safety and economic security of low-income individuals and families in the South End and Lower Roxbury and to serve as a national model of successful community engagement. Please visit www.uses.org.

USES' innovative programs annually serve more than 3,000 individuals of all ages. They include early childhood education, after school and summer enrichment, youth arts programming, summer overnight camp, adult education and workforce readiness, and senior health, wellness and home repair services. USES' Vision and Theory of Change is to:

  • Address the diverse needs of the community, helping individuals achieve success in their lives in much the same way that a primary care physician coordinates the health care needs of patients.
  • Build trusting relationships with community partners to provide specialized services and stimulate strategic initiatives and funding support to expand opportunities. Improve neighbors' lives by enhancing the five dimensions of well-being: relationships, education, health, safety, and economic security.
  • Measure results through outcome studies and data.

USES embraces the challenges of working in a changing neighborhood with diverse stakeholders who have much to learn and benefit from in knowing each other and working together in a way that reflects the world as we would like it to be: neighbors helping neighbors and interacting in meaningful ways. As a community center and catalyst for broad and inclusive community engagement, USES seeks to serve as "the community's living room" where issues, problems and challenges are deliberated and unified strategies are created to effect change and improvement in the overall health of the community.

The Position
The CEO will work with a staff of approximately 55 persons, a 15-member Board of Directors, a network of volunteers, and multiple stakeholders. USES has an endowment of more than $2.5 million and an annual budget of approximately $3.5 million. USES' values of responsibility, choice, empowerment, learning, recognition of individuals' assets, and leadership in institutional change will inform the CEO's work of structuring and managing USES in a strategic, creative, efficient and fiscally responsible manner. S/he will evaluate, modify or refine and implement USES' 2014-16 Strategic Plan, which currently has four main strategies and associated goals:

Grow USES to a size that will sustain overhead costs and ensure that all assets are being employed in the most strategic manner
  • Increase funding for existing program and other operating expenses
  • Expand existing programs to gain economies of scale
  • Add new programming
  • Grow the endowment fund

Develop and nurture strong relationships with participants and key stakeholders
  • Develop strategic relationships
  • Lead USES in becoming an even more effective and engaging community-based agency
  • Play a significant role in key community initiatives

Develop an organizational structure that supports the Theory of Change
  • Ensure a robust financial management system
  • Ensure a structure that supports interdepartmental work

Implement the performance management practices required of a high-performing organization
  • Enhance staff training and development
  • Support the Board of Directors' development and leadership
