Bridge to Home, a homeless services agency located in Santa Clarita, CA, is seeking an Executive Director

Our wonderful Executive Director, Tim Davis, is retiring from his “third career” and leaving both Bridge to Home and the Santa Clarita Valley. The Board of Directors is recruiting for the position and is seeking candidates that can build on the strong foundation that Tim is leaving.  We are so very grateful for the service and leadership that Tim and Laurel Davis have given to our community. Watch this space for more information about how we plan to celebrate this retirement.

Bridge to Home provides support services – including an emergency winter shelter case management, housing navigation, and medical and dental clinics – that help individuals and families in the Santa Clarita Valley transition out of homelessness.  Bridge to Home is funded through contracts with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, subcontracts with Los Angeles Family Housing, private and public grants, and extensive in-kind donations and participation from the local community.

Bridge to Home is a growing organization that currently operates with a year round staff of 13, an annual cash budget of approximately $600,000, and an annual in-kind budget of approximately $300,000.

The new Executive Director will work with an energetic board of directors, a strong, compassionate staff, and a supportive community as we design and implement plans to build a new permanent facility and new ways to effectively serve the homeless residents of the Santa Clarita Valley.
