At Home of Guiding Hands, we are fortunate to have dedicated support from our volunteer Board of Directors, Board of Trustees, Board of Governors, HGH Housing Corporation Board of Trustees, and several volunteer committees.
Individuals who serve on boards and committees provide valuable oversight, insight and guidance. Additionally, members offer support and establish policy in the areas of fund raising, community relations, operations, human resources, finance and strategic planning.
The Board of Directors meets every other month on the second Tuesday. The members serve a four-year term and officers are elected annually by a majority of the Board.
The Board of Governors is an advisory board that meets at least annually in conjunction with the Board of Directors’ annual meeting. Its purpose is to strengthen ties between HGH and community friends, serve in an advisory capacity in specific areas of expertise, assist with increasing support for HGH, and provide input concerning the agency’s performance.
The HGH Housing Corporation Board of Trustees oversees the two U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) projects that HGH received funding for in 2003. HUD purchased and renovated two of our community homes and provides a small monthly stipend to HGH in the form of rental assistance for the 12 residents with developmental disabilities who live in these homes.
We are currently recruiting community members to support our mission. For more information regarding board involvement, please contact Mark Klaus, President/CEO: firstname.lastname@example.org or (619) 938-2857.
