Executive Director, William Temple House
Portland, Oregon
Equal Opportunity Employer

The William Temple House mission is to restore hope and renew strength in individuals and families in a welcoming and respectful atmosphere. William Temple House was established in early 1965 when lay members of the Oregon Episcopal Diocese met with Rev. Canon Clarence T. Abbott of the Parish of St. Mark in Portland to respond to the needs of families struggling on the economic margins. More than 50 years later, William Temple House continues that mission partnering with many community organizations and faith-based institutions as part of the social safety net in Portland.

William Temple House supports people with a holistic mind- body- spirit philosophy of service. It provides affordable professional counseling to individuals, couples and families. Through its social services programs, William Temple House provides food and personal care items, new clothing for children, rent, utilities, and prescription drug assistance, and dental and vision care. William Temple House honors the worth, dignity and diversity of each person through its commitment of compassionate presence, attention and respectful assistance to all we serve, especially those struggling with poverty.

William Temple House headquarters are in the historic Mackenzie House at NW 20th and Hoyt. It also operates the WTH Thrift Store at NW Glisan between NW22nd and 23rd, providing low cost household furnishings and clothing to the community and generating income to help support its services. William Temple House maintains close ties with the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon, but is an independent nonprofit organization.

The Executive Director is responsible for oversight and management of WTH staff and volunteers (approximately 25 full and part-time staff and over 200 volunteers) and its programs and services. The position reports to the Board of Directors.

Preferred credentials include established and successful organization leadership in management, developing and implementing strategic initiatives, expanding donor base, driving fiscal sustainability, empowering and engaging staff and major stakeholders, and promoting program outcome assessment. The ability to bring inspirational leadership to a mission-focused, faith-based organization is essential. Nonprofit management experience is preferred, but consideration will be given to transferrable skills and expertise.

Salary range of $90,000 to $110,000 based on expertise and experience. Benefits competitive with Portland area non-profits.

For consideration, please send credentials, including cover letter, resume, references and compensation expectations addressed to William Temple House Executive Search Committee by email to or to 2023 NW Hoyt Street, Portland OR 97209.
