The Lucie’s Place team is excited to announce brand new opportunities to work directly with our Executive Director and staff to serve LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness while developing a safe and transformative space for the local LGBTQ community.
Lucie’s Place wants to hear from compassionate, forward-thinking leaders who are interested in joining our Board of Advisors! As a Board Member, you will work with our Executive Director and the Director of Center Operations to further develop and expand Lucie’s Place resource capacity, manage critical assets, brainstorm and implement fundraising campaigns, foster relationships with local allied organizations and businesses, and take the initiative to advocate, educate, and lead your own projects with the goal of improving our reach and our capacity to provide services.
The Lucie’s Place Board is an indispensable part of our leadership, and we are particularly interested in folks who share our same desire to move away from the traditional methods of the nonprofit industrial complex and toward structuring more radical frameworks that prioritize mutual aid and community self-empowerment.
As a Board Member, you have the freedom to set your own schedule, but we expect a flexible commitment of 10-20 hours a month of direct organizing or equivalent work. Prior organizing and fundraising experience is preferred, but not required. We are currently prioritizing Black and Brown LGBTQ applicants, particularly Trans and GNC applicants and applicants who have personal lived experiences with being unhoused and housing insecurity. This is in effort to reserve space for marginalized peoples to have the opportunity to serve in a leadership capacity, and not meant to discourage others from applying!
