Vice President of Community Impact

This is an opportunity to work and live in a community where change is possible, work is rewarding and the lifestyle is fantastic! 

United Way of Pierce County in Tacoma, WA has embarked on a search for a talented, creative leader who has the relationship, development and leadership skills to be its next Vice President of Community Impact.

United Way, along with its community partners, has forged a bold path to lift 15,000 households out of poverty and into financial stability by 2028, one family at a time.  As a catalyst for change, we bring people together to convene around public problem solving that focuses on the continuum of moving families out of poverty. Getting people out of poverty isn’t a linear path. To create lasting impact we take an integrated approach:

  • A Strong Foundation of Basic Needs: By ensuring basic needs such as food, clothing, transportation, health and shelter are met families can move out of crisis and into stability.
  • Breaking Down Barriers: Navigating supportive services like affordable childcare, English language skills, technology, legal assistance and safety needs provide greater family stability.
  • Financial Stability: Employment placement, financial coaching, education and workplace skills move families from stable to thriving.

Creative solutions to community problems require innovative approaches to solving the complex issue of poverty. All of the resources raised are invested in our poverty-fighting work and community partners that are aligned with our mission to address the barriers of poverty and move more families to self-sufficiency.
