Summary: Better Tomorrows supports youth, adult, and senior residents of affordable housing with case management and programming tailored to help individuals and communities thrive. The organization’s services are focused around the four core outcome areas of Economic Stability, Educational Success, Healthy Lifestyles, and Strong Communities.

The concept of Better Tomorrows began in 1989 as a natural extension of the work of affordable housing owner and developer Mike Levitt and his housing manager, Jackie Jones, who committed to delivering impact-driven services to vulnerable residents in order to foster empowerment. Building on this legacy, Better Tomorrows became an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit in February 2013.

Better Tomorrows develops its community programming by identifying resident needs through assessments, surveys, and personalized understandings. Better Tomorrows then determines whether a similar resource already exists, and coordinates access for residents. If a similar program is not available, Better Tomorrows creates and implements the needed program.

The Director of Fund Development will report to the President and CEO and work closely with senior leadership colleagues responsible for external communications and partnerships, impact, service delivery and new business development. The Director of Fund Development is responsible for the creation and delivery of strategies to grow a diversified and sustainable base of philanthropic support for national, regional and site-level initiatives.

Yet, our collective focus guides us in our efforts to make a difference with and for our neighbors in need.

It is through a network of nearly 1,000 community-based organizations across the state that we are able to achieve wide demographic reach and realize a scale of programming. This network has evolved organically and sporadically over the past 45 years. Today, we are at a critical juncture where we are called to better understand the programs we deliver and the partners we engage to better assist our neighbors facing food insecurity. To that end, we are hiring a Network Leader to work in partnership with our staff and the network members to gain a deep understanding of the current capacity of the network and use those insights to maximize the performance of the network in service to our statewide mission

The Network Leader will initially report directly to the President & CEO and will partner with the Vice President of Programs and Operations to determine if the existing network can be improved by incremental or major changes based upon analytic assessment and in line with strategic planning. This allows for efficient and effective planning and implementation of efforts that will positively impact CFBNJ's network of 800+ feeding programs at both Hillside and Egg Harbor locations. This is a key leadership role that will contribute to the overall strategic goals of the FoodBank and directly impact the organization’s food distribution programs and member agency relations. The network includes member agencies, children’s feeding programs, food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters. This role will oversee a variety of priority projects including moving to a paperless operation, more deeply engaging our agency customers, and participating in ongoing efforts to assess the agency network for the purpose of enhancing and strengthening our partnership efforts to reach our neighbors in need. The Network Leader will also have responsibility for the development and implementation of policies and procedures, recruiting, training and development, and regular monitoring to ensure that each network partner remains in compliance with all applicable Feeding America and government regulations and health codes.

At this critical time for our country, this is an incredible opportunity for an entrepreneurial, systems-oriented professional to have a tremendous impact on the ability of New Jersey to meet the needs of its most vulnerable neighbors.
