About the Job


The Vermont Affordable Housing Coalition and Vermont Coalition to End Homelessness are currently undergoing a merger and are seeking to hire an Executive Director to lead our newly formed organization. This nascent organization is a dynamic statewide membership organization working towards safe, accessible, and perpetually affordable homes for all Vermonters. We represent a diverse network of nonprofit affordable housing developers and managers, shelter and service providers, public housing authorities, funding agencies, community action agencies, regional planners, housing, disability, and tenants’ rights advocates, and individual members — all united in the goal of meeting the housing and support needs of the state’s low- and moderate-income residents with opportunity, choice, and dignity and ensuring that if homelessness does occur, that it is brief and non-recurring.

The Executive Director oversees and coordinates all aspects of the Coalition’s functions, both day-to-day and long-range planning, and is the primary coalition representative at the statehouse during the legislative session. We are seeking an Executive Director with nonprofit management, fundraising, and legislative advocacy experience. An ideal candidate would have at least five years’ experience in the fields of affordable housing, community development, addressing homelessness, or related field, a commitment to social, racial, and economic justice, and excellent relationship-building skills.

  • Hiring salary is budgeted in the $75,000-$80,000 range, depending on experience.

  • Generous health insurance plan, three weeks of paid vacation, 14 paid holidays, sick leave, 403(b) retirement plan with employer contribution after one year, disability and life insurance and more

Employer's Approach to Diversity, Equity, & Belonging

VAHC envisions a future where everyone has a home in which to live with dignity and opportunity. We recognize the deep inequities in accessing decent, safe, affordable housing for BIPOC, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, families with children, and other groups historically subject to discrimination and exclusion in housing as well as the disproportionate impact that the current housing crisis has on members of these groups. To help address this, we seek a broad and diverse membership and participation in all aspects of the organization’s education, outreach, and advocacy work and our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee is creating review processes to ensure that legislative policy development is done with a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens.
