City Heights Community Development Corporation (CHCDC) is seeking the organization’s next Executive Director. CHCDC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in the City Heights community
of central San Diego. City Heights is a diverse community of almost 80,000 lower income families, many of whom are new arrivals in the US. CHCDC was founded by residents in 1981 in response to deteriorating neighborhood conditions, inadequate facilities, poor infrastructure and a lack of community involvement in redevelopment efforts. By the 1990’s, services expanded to focus on developing affordable housing and resident job preparation and placement. Today, CHCDC delivers programs in resident leadership, active transportation and community and economic development improvement programs.
The Executive Director is responsible for the successful leadership and management of the day-to-day operations of the organization, according to the strategic direction set by the Board of Directors, in order to ensure program and fiscal sustainability and accountability. The Executive Director works with, and supports the board in defining organizational priorities, and developing strong collaborating relationships with San Diego’s nonprofit community, including funders, agencies and community based organizations.
