About OUR Center
Founded in 1986 and designed to unite community resources in support of those in need, Outreach United Resource Center, Inc. (OUR Center) works to create a welcoming, supportive and inclusive place for St Vrain Valley residents to seek an array of services to regain or begin their road to self-sufficiency.
Located in a modern 30,000 square foot facility and an off-site child-development center, OUR Center’s 43-person staff and 1,000+ volunteer force serves over 100,000 hot meals and distributes over 1,000,000 pounds of groceries to nearly 20,000 households annually. OUR Center resource navigators support participants in accessing utility shut-off prevention services, rent vouchers, emergency shelter and self-sufficiency case management services. The OUR Center’s Colorado Level 5-rated Aspen Center for Child Development provides day care and school readiness programs to children and their families in and around the Longmont community.
The OUR Center is a Family Resource Center (FRC). FRCs partner with individuals and the entire family to help them become more self-reliant in key areas that affect family stability including parenting, health, education, employment, housing and financial management. This initiative intends to have a long-term and sustained impact on the enhanced capacity of individuals and parents to provide for themselves and their children’s needs, and for communities to serve people in need.
In light of the retirement of the OUR Center’s highly respected, long-term leader, the board of directors seeks an executive director who is committed to advancing the mission of helping people in the St. Vrain Region move toward self-sufficiency by unifying community resources. This compassionate, skilled and innovative leader will have administrative, programmatic, fiscal, marketing, fundraising and community relations responsibility for the OUR Center.
In conjunction with the Board of Directors, the executive director is responsible for developing the long-term strategic plan and implementing the yearly operational plan, complete with goals and metrics in support of the board’s annual direction. The director is also responsible for ensuring that policies and procedures follow applicable regulations and good business practices.
The director will complete the transition of the OUR Center to an FRC in collaboration with homeless prevention and poverty initiatives including Bridges Out of Poverty, Boulder County Connect (BCC) Software, LENA Partnership with the St. Vrain Valley School District, and the Longmont Housing Opportunity Team.
