Roxbury Tenants of Harvard
Roxbury Tenants of Harvard (RTH), a Boston-based community development organization, seeks a collaborative and galvanizing professional with expertise in both programs and business operations to become the Senior Program Director of the RTH Community Center (Senior Program Director), a state-of-the-art building that anchors the organization's resident-centered approach to safe and healthy living. This is a compelling opportunity for a sophisticated relationship builder, an innovative administrator, and a leader who can inspire coordinated action and enthusiasm to sustain a thriving and vibrant community.
Founded in the late 1960s, RTH is one of the most innovative and successful community development organizations in the Boston area. Never veering far from its original mission of preserving the vibrancy of Mission Hill, RTH has, over the last 60 years, invested in developing and maintaining safe, affordable housing for low- and moderate-income people of diverse backgrounds. Since its founding, RTH has developed 1,114 units of mixed-income housing and commercial space bounded by Francis Street, Huntington Avenue, and the Riverway. Today, RTH goes far beyond housing and offers a comprehensive suite of services and programs to its more than 2,196 residents, 35 percent of whom are seniors (55+) and 27 percent of whom are children (0-20).
The Senior Program Director will join RTH at a time of renewed energy and growth. With a new 112-unit high-rise development underway, the simultaneous rehabilitation of 109 historic apartments, a growing resident population, and increased partnership opportunities from its neighboring institutions, RTH is poised to continue to play a transformative role in defining quality of life in a vibrant and diverse neighborhood that is adjacent to the most important medical area in New England. Reporting to the Executive Director, the Senior Program Director will be an effective leader, a natural collaborator, and a skilled communicator who is capable of building trusting relationships with colleagues and constituents of diverse perspectives. The ideal candidate will have experience delivering quality and culturally responsive programs and services to individuals and families, preferably in a metro area where income inequality and systemic barriers play an outsized role in the health and safety of a community. They will be committed to being an engaged leader with a dedication to the RTH mission.
