Hope & Comfort’s mission is to provide essential hygiene products to support and improve the health, self-esteem, and hygiene education of student-aged children, families and adults who experience hygiene insecurity. The organization’s innovative model relies on an efficient supply chain and partnerships with over 250 community partners (such as Boston Public Schools, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Boston, Cradles to Crayons, The Greater Boston Food Bank, the YMCA of Greater Boston). In 2022, Hope & Comfort will distribute more than 2 million hygiene products; and also raises more than $1.5M annually while leveraging $2M+ in in-kind donations.
There are an estimated 1 million children and adults in Massachusetts alone who are experiencing hygiene insecurity; Hope & Comfort seeks to meet this critical demand within the next five years through rapid growth of funding and the hiring of the organization’s first Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
The CEO will inspire staff, Board and all stakeholders while designing and implementing a strategy for success in funding (public, private and in-kind), programmatic partnerships, and the building of organizational infrastructure. This is a tremendous opportunity for a passionate, strategic and entrepreneurial leader who is an authentic relationship- and strong organization-builder to guide Hope & Comfort’s step-change growth.
