The Episcopal Health Foundation, a new foundation based in Houston that is focused on engaging a social transformation approach to philanthropy, has three job opportunities located in the Impact Division:
· The Evaluation Officer will be focused on developing metrics and evaluation processes for the Foundation’s work—we want to make a difference, and we want to be able to track progress and improve how we allocate resources;
· The Learning Officer will be focused on identifying capacity development needs and supporting training for technical and social change processes to advance community health with Foundation grantees and partners, building such initiatives into the Foundation’s work plans and grant-making cycles, and strengthening internal organizational effectiveness;
· The Diocesan Liaison will be focused on working with the leadership of the Episcopal Church in Texas and strengthening the impact of over 1,400 community outreach congregational ministries located within the 57 counties of the Episcopal Diocese of Texas to support community health.
There are different combinations of training and skills required—experience working with indicators related to health and social transformation, community organizing, quantitative and qualitative analysis, adult learning techniques, Spanish skills, etc. Specific information on requirements for each position can be found at www.episcopalhealth.org/career-opportunities.
The Impact Division, as with the broader Foundation, will work as a team with significant interconnection of work among the roles. The Foundation seeks significant progress toward healthy communities within the Episcopal Diocese of Texas—which stretches from Austin to the Northeast corner of Texas and down to Matagorda on the Southeastern coast—and recognizes that this will require ways of working that often have not been tried in Texas, at least not on a large scale. EHF’s three goals are to create a strong health system, empowered communities, and an engaged Diocese of Texas. Texas in general, and East Texas in particular have some of the worst health outcomes and health disparities in the country. We need a creative, energetic, thoughtful team that can keep their eye on the prize throughout this journey.
Please feel free to circulate information on these job opportunities. All of the positions require at least 5 years of experience in the field, and applicants with more experience than the minimum are strongly encouraged to apply. The Foundation offers highly competitive salaries based on experience level, with good benefits. Deadline for applications is September 12.
