Building a secure and hopeful today so children facing health issues and poverty succeed tomorrow. That's the promise of The Children's Place Association.
We help children overcome illness and extreme poverty so they can lead healthy, productive lives. Opened in 1991 in response to the HIV/AIDS crisis, our Chicago-based organization now serves children and families challenged by a wide range of conditions. Our programs include Early Childhood Education, 24-hour Nursing, Family Housing, Supportive Services, Foster/Adoptive Care and Summer Camp. We serve more than 350 Chicago-area children and caregivers annually, and our international program helps 300 HIV/AIDS-affected children in Haiti.
We are seeking a Director of Programs to lead our direct services team. The Director of Programs has primary responsibility for the day-to-day management of Children’s Place programs through leadership and supervision of Program Managers and collaboration with other members of the Executive Team.
