Executive Director of Operation Nightwatch

Executive Director of Operation Nightwatch


Operation Nightwatch seeks a passionate and focused Executive Director with strong leadership skills to build on a 35-year legacy of developing, supporting, and providing hospitality services to Portland’s neediest. Operation Nightwatch, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that started in Portland, Oregon in 1981. We recognize that homelessness is perhaps the loneliest and most isolating experience there is. Operation Nightwatch operates a Hospitality Center in downtown Portland on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. It operates a Hospitality Center in SE Portland on Friday evenings, as well as a mobile hospitality unit on Saturday evenings, also in SE Portland. Our hospitality programs offer a safe, welcoming environment to members of the homeless and low-income community. As our “guests,” those who come to us are provided with coffee, food, and social interaction. Volunteer registered nurses are on duty to provide foot-care and attend to basic medical needs. A Mental Health Specialist is onsite at our downtown location during operating hours to provide support and resources to guests as needed. Though an individual may not have a roof over their head, the goal at Nightwatch is to provide a comfortable environment for all guests and to ensure that our guests, for at least a few hours a few evenings a week, have a place where they can feel “at home.” We encourage all potential applicants to view our website for additional information about our operation and programs: www.operationnightwatch.org. Operation Nightwatch is an Equal Opportunity Employer. All references and candidates backgrounds will be checked and must be satisfactory to the Board prior to an offer of employment being extended. Candidates extended an offer of employment will be required to pass a drug test. To apply, please send resume and cover letter to search@operationnightwatch.org. Resumes will be accepted through March 1, 2017.
