Habitat for Humanity of Chester County

Director Of Marketing And Development, Habitat for Humanity of Chester County

Posted on May 12, 2020

Habitat for Humanity of Chester County (HfHCC), a 501 (C) 3 organization and affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, provides affordable housing options for low-income families in need of decent, modest housing. Through homeownership, Habitat breaks the cycle of poverty, helping families who work and struggle with burdensome housing costs and poor, unsafe living conditions to achieve the strength, stability, and self-confidence that transforms all aspects of life.

HfHCC is significantly expanding its construction program and operations to new levels of achievement… building more homes, helping more families and having greater community impact. Paramount to this growth is the West Grove Housing Program, a 40-home townhouse project conducted in concert with USDA which will augment ongoing home construction in the Coatesville area. HfHCC has also begun to explore the next level of service to the community through Neighborhood Revitalization Programs and Home Rehabilitation.

HfHCC is expanding its programs and services to address this dramatic growth, including a major expansion of the scope, reach and impact of its Development Program and Marketing activities. The Director of Development & Marketing, a newly created position, will work closely with the Executive Director to provide leadership for planning, management and implementation of a Comprehensive Development and Marketing Program. This professional will work directly with the Board, community leaders, volunteers and philanthropists to build the donor base, secure major gifts, and expand the capacity of HfHCC to reach new sources of funds to advance the mission and strengthen the position of HfHCC in the general and philanthropic community.
