President and Chief Executive Officer

Date Posted: November 20, 2019

Employer: Melwood

Location/Hours: Upper Marlboro, MD; Full Time

ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND

Melwood is a premier and complex mission driven organization committed to inspiring children, youth and adults of differing abilities to break through barriers so they may pursue careers of their choosing and enjoy meaningful community inclusion. Melwood is a leader in utilizing an innovative and effective social-entrepreneurial model to provide social and human services to those of differing abilities.

The organization provides employment, job training, life skills improvement, community support and recreation opportunities to nearly 2,600 unique individuals each year. As a result of the integrated program offerings, Melwood is one of the largest employers of people of differing abilities in the United States. Among its 1,600 workers, Melwood employs nearly 1,000 people of differing abilities, providing them a good job with fair pay, benefits, and direct support as needed.

With revenue in excess of $110M, the organization offers business contract services, community services, veterans services and recreational programs. Melwood employs 1,484 people (1,296 full-time, and 188 part-time), with 41 employees in corporate leadership and shared services. Melwood hires about 91 people seasonally each year, supported by a small number of independent contractors, to meet the needs of its landscaping and recreation lines of business. While Melwood does receive support and revenue in the form of grants and contributions, approximately 85% of Melwood’s revenue is currently derived from contracts with the federal government through the AbilityOne program.

MISSION: Melwood advocates for and empowers individuals of differing abilities to transform their own lives through unique opportunities to work and play in the community.

VISION: A world where people of differing abilities are fully included.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

  • All People Have the Ability and Potential to Enrich Their Own Lives and the Lives of Others.
  • All People Have the Right to Choose Their Own Path.
  • All People Have the Right to Meaningful Inclusion in the Community.

History

Melwood was founded in 1963 when a small group of parents and community supporters decided to teach plant care to young adults who were considered by most to be untrainable, and unemployable. Their goal was almost unheard of: jobs for people with disabilities. It was a bold idea for its time. On seven acres of unimproved land sold by Andrews Air Force Base — Melwood’s founders pitched an Army surplus tent and began to lay the infrastructure for a place where people of differing abilities could gain specific job skills and earn self-generated income.

Over the following decades, Melwood would pioneer many new milestones in the field that would be known as social-entrepreneurial ventures: businesses with the 'double bottom line' of providing revenue as well as jobs and independence for people of differing abilities.

The first successes came in horticulture. Trainees cultivated plants through the founding program in horticulture rehabilitative therapy and sold them at work sites around the Washington D.C. area. That work led to grounds keeping and landscaping contracts, where Melwood crews consistently delivered good, dependable work.

Over time, Melwood continued to expand its programs, providing employment through services contracts with major federal government agencies, state, county, local governments and commercial firms, enhancing its revenue through fundraising initiatives such as charity vehicle donations.

While people with neurodevelopmental challenges remained a core constituency, the organization grew to offer broader support services including services for veterans affected by post-traumatic stress and mild traumatic brain injury through the establishment of Melwood Veterans Services in 2016. Melwood even offers inclusive children’s programming to help foster a generation that will demand a world where people of differing abilities are fully included.

In 2017, Melwood formally absorbed Linden Resources, a government and commercial solutions provider for the Federal government and Public Sector, allowing Melwood to build on its existing federal contracts under the AbilityOne program and expand its presence and reach in the AbilityOne contracting industry.  

In a continued effort to expand to new mission aligned initiatives, Melwood has also embraced the emerging opportunity to serve adults on the autism spectrum, especially given advances in technology and the growing workforce need for individuals who see data and process thoughts differently. In 2019, Melwood launched the AbilIT program that is designed to help people of differing abilities enter the IT field with the knowledge and certifications needed to succeed through technical training and professional/personal development coaching.

OPPORTUNITY

This is an exciting opportunity for a passionate and social enterprise-minded executive that can envision the future strategy for Melwood and build on the rich legacy of Melwood’s past. The new leader will inherit the success of the retiring CEO who greatly professionalized and grew the enterprise. The new executive will bring strong business acumen to drive Melwood’s continued evolution and increased impact as a leader and innovator in the fields of employment and support services for people of differing abilities.

Melwood’s next CEO will champion efforts to increase diversity and inclusion of people of differing abilities in the workforce in a wider array of jobs, ensure that programs align with the dreams and desires of the next generation as youth transition from school to work in a fast-paced, more equitable world. The next leader will also have the opportunity to support injured veterans in their efforts toward community reintegration and long-term employment and deliver on a promise to thousands of people served by Melwood.   

Founded on innovation, inclusion and social good, Melwood has maintained these three key principles throughout the course of its history. Moving forward, Melwood will need to navigate the inherent tension caused by its identity as both a social services agency and a social enterprise business. Given its reliance on AbilityOne contracts coupled with the uncertainty of federal funding, Melwood is well positioned to diversify funding sources, seek a sustainable mix of public/private revenue generating programs, and identify innovative business opportunities to expand the enterprise and its resources in supporting the modern job market with new types of employment.

Census 2020 Coalition Project Organizer

Date Posted: August 28, 2019

Employer: Advocates for Children of New Jersey

Location/Hours: Newark, NJ; Full Time, temporary for one year

Job Description: ACNJ is seeking a full-time Project Organizer to lead a one-year special project for our organization. The project seeks to build a strong coalition across New Jersey (Census 2020 NJ Coalition) to ensure a complete count of underrepresented communities in the 2020 Census, with a special focus on children under age 5.

The 2020 Census will seek to count nearly 400 million people, requiring cooperation among federal, state, and local governments, community-based organizations, private sector and philanthropy. Census data is used to apportion congressional representation and design congressional, state and local legislative districts. Census data shapes the distribution of $700 billion in annual federal allocations to states and localities, including funding for Head Start programs, public assistance, Medicaid, school lunch programs, Section 8 housing, and critical infrastructure such as public transit, hospitals, libraries and schools. In New Jersey, the annual distribution of $22.7 billion for federal programs depends on data derived from the census. If our residents go uncounted, it will inhibit both equal access to resources and equal political representation for New Jerseyans. New Jersey is an extremely diverse state, with high numbers of hard-to-count communities such as: racial and ethnic minorities, children, urban and rural low-income households, limited-English-proficient immigrants, mixed-status families, homeless people, and LGBTQ communities.

In partnership with other members of the Census 2020 NJ Coalition, a statewide coalition of nonprofits with the goal of an accurate 2020 Census count, ACNJ plans to address this challenge through coordinated outreach in hard-to-count communities. With its existing network of partners at the municipal and local levels, ACNJ will engage hundreds of community-based and nonprofit organizations to participate in Census outreach to their members and communities.

The Project Organizer will be the point person for the outreach. The job includes regular evening work and some weekend work.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • 4-year degree required
  • To be considered for employment, candidate must possess a valid Driver’s License, current automobile insurance, and consistent and reliable transportation.  

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Fluency in Spanish strongly preferred, in both oral and written communication  

Essential Functions (to include, but not limited to):

  • Identify organizations who should be part of local Complete Count Committees (CCCs) in specific hard-to-count communities across the state, build relationships with those organizations, and engage municipal leaders to ensure participation;
  • Educate local community organizations, nonprofits, early childhood care providers, municipal governments, health care organizations and other groups through in-person presentations and distribution of materials;
  • Perform train-the-trainer sessions for local community-based organizations to build network of Census ambassadors throughout the state;
  • Collect dates and locations of Census-related events and activities of CCCs throughout the state and update calendar;

  • Provide technical assistance to local community-based organizations with questions about Census organizing;
  • Hold one-on-one meetings with local CCCs and community organizations in the New Jersey; and
  • Work closely with organizers from other Coalition members to coordinate outreach to local groups.

Salary commensurate with experience and good benefits package. Interested applicants should send their resume and cover letter to Peter Chen at pchen@acnj.org. No phone calls.
