Is It You?

There’s a chance you may be our ideal Community Director for Houston if you meet the description above, and if:

  • You are the one your friends want to follow if there’s ever a zombie uprising. Why? Because your brain is wired for strategy, adaptability, and resourcefulness (and it’s probably delicious).
  • You love fundraising, especially that moment when a donor realizes their value system lines up perfectly with your organization’s work and you both feel so lucky to have found each other!
  • You have deep roots in Houston and nothing would make you prouder than being part of an effort to bring services to your underserved (but very deserving) fellow Houstonians.
  • You are a dynamic and compelling speaker – in public, to small groups, one-on-one, in English, in Spanish, to people, and even to animals. (Okay, maybe just to your pets at home…)
  • You can’t stand injustice so you are always advocating for those without a voice. But in all these years, you’ve never lost your optimism, your sense of humor, or your hope.
