Executive Director Opportunity
Closing date:  Monday, August 22nd, 2022 @ 12 p.m. (noon)

ABOUT FUTURE HOPE:
With a dedicated team composed of staff and program volunteers, Future Hope provides community-based
services and support in a caring, non-judgemental environment. It starts before an inmate’s release helping
to prepare them for life in community. Upon release, very practical supports and accompaniment include
sober and substance-free transitional housing to help transition and reintegrate into community. Through
their journey with Future Hope, individuals leaving incarceration build the self-efficacy skills and pathways
needed to be connected and live well in community. They become self-reliant and independent, and experience
better mental and physical health and well-being. They have hope for the future. Trusting, respectful and
prosocial relationships are nurtured.
