Chief Executive Officer, Distress Centre Calgary (WR: 575)

Open
Alberta, Calgary
Posted 3 weeks ago

We are proudly working with Distress Centre Calgary and their Board of Directors to find their next Chief Executive Officer. Distress Centre Calgary provides 24 hour crisis support, professional counselling, youth peer support and referrals – all at no cost. For over 50 years, Distress Centre has served Calgary and Southern Alberta, ensuring everyone has a place to turn in times of crisis. There has been no time in the organization’s 50 year history more important than in this past year where Distress Centre Calgary became a critical player in the Government of Alberta’s pandemic response. Distress Centre Calgary has built a community of care in the face of a global pandemic with the transition to virtual delivery, and expanded programs to meet the increased demand and need for mental health, housing and homelessness support.

 

The Chief Executive Officer will lead the growth of Distress Centre Calgary’s strategic partnerships with other critical agencies and support services within the mental health and crisis support sector. This is a position requiring strong community leadership within social services or the not-for-profit sector, and a compassion and understanding of mental health issues, crisis support, and vulnerable populations. Please contact Ranju Shergill, at ranju@pekarskyco.com for further details on this role.
