10.21.19 Executive Director Protected Harbor About Protected Harbor: Protected Harbor was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to develop and operate permanent supportive housing, enhanced by Christian care, for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Protected Harbor is a faith-based organization operating out of two locations in Fort Myers, where adults with developmental disabilities live and socialize together. The first home built—referred to as Protected Harbor 1—is a beautiful facility which houses six women in individual bedroom-bathroom suites, with two live-in care giving couples. Protected Harbor 2 is an equally beautiful co-ed facility with two live-in care giving couples, and it is licensed to serve six individuals. The Protected Harbor residential community is centered on lifelong opportunities for social, emotional and spiritual growth. The Board is highly committed to the success and future growth of Protected Harbor.

Protected Harbor has an annual operating budget of $500,000. The organization receives government fees to offset the cost of services, but the organization is also financed by resident fees, contributions (individual, corporate, organizational), fundraising events, and grants. The organization has grown and matured to the point that the Board is now ready to hire an Executive Director. The long-term vision is to add additional facilities and to create an endowment which would provide funding for developmentally disabled individuals who are not currently eligible for other funding, but are seeking and would benefit from a loving, Christian home.

Desired Candidates: The ideal candidate is a seasoned manager (with a preference for experience in the provision of residential services for people with developmental disabilities) who has demonstrated success in fundraising. The ideal candidate will genuinely share the vision of Protected Harbor. Given that Protected Harbor is dedicated to offering various opportunities for spiritual growth for its residents, and to ensure that environment is maintained, the person hired for this position is expected to be a transparent leader who has a real passion for Protected Harbor as a faith-based organization. The ideal candidate must also have excellent communication skills, be a “self-starter” with a strong work ethic, and exhibit high energy.
