The Parenting Por Vida (PPV) Director will oversee and implement family services programs under the Parenting Por Vida including the Triple P AZ, Host Kith & Kin partnership, HEA plus partnership, and Parent Volunteers. This position will provide vision and strategic planning for PPV, and other programs as requested/needed within the Neighborhood Ministries (NM) community and will foster an atmosphere of compassion, creativity, learning, relational connectedness, and accountability. In addition to providing program management, due to the long-term relationship framework of NM, this position is responsible for building relationships of trust with participants, staff, and volunteers of PPV. Listening with compassion, without judgment, is critical to building trust. In helping to support young families, the Director is both a role model and, at times, a surrogate parent/grandparent figure with the goal to help build a community of hope, confident interdependence, and empathy. As families grow in these critical building blocks, the stability of individuals, families, and communities is strengthened. This position is exempt, and many responsibilities fall on evenings and weekends including attendance at baby showers, weddings, birthday parties, hospital visits, births, and deaths.
