It's hard to be a teenager. Do you remember the struggles of relationships and school, of self-image and moving from youth toward adulthood? Imagine navigating that journey without a family, without financial resources, or any support in your efforts. Twenty-three years ago, Outreach stepped into that need, helping homeless youth with supplies and conversation, working out of the trunk of their cars, and sharing the love of Christ.
Since 1995, Outreach, Inc. has served thousands of the homeless youth in Indianapolis. Offering an array of ministry programs, including basic needs drop-in services, case management, life skills and educational assistance, recreational therapy, and community events. Outreach equips and empowers homeless youth and teens to achieve stability and life transformation. Working from a new drop-in facility on the near eastside, the organization is poised for an exciting future full of opportunity and growth.  Outreach has grown to an annual operating budget of $2 mil and 23 staff team, increasing from just over $1 mil only 5 years ago.
Outreach is seeking a seasoned leader, grounded in their Christian faith, to strengthen operations and support continued growth and expansion of services.  Eric Howard, the founder, is moving to a new role that will report to the CEO, where he will continue to leverage his strengths and focus on expanding programming and impact.
The CEO will provide professional and spiritual leadership to a dedicated and passionate staff team. This opportunity is perfect for a high-capacity leader who can develop and empower staff and volunteers, provide sound fiscal oversight, implement strategic plans, partner with the founder on further fundraising initiatives and diversification of funding streams, plus expand relationships with partners and key stakeholders.
The ideal candidate will be an experienced professional who can successfully lead a staff team and manage a P&L while overseeing an array of services, in partnership with capable and committed staff, volunteers, and an engaged board of directors. Experience leading in a ministry or nonprofit setting is helpful but not a requirement. Throughout their daily work, the CEO will model the culture consistent with the mission and values of Outreach.
