Updates: CEO Search + Strategic Plan

Two very big projects are underway at St. Patrick Center: the search for a new CEO and Year Two of the Strategic Plan.

Laurie Phillips left her position as CEO at the end of September. “The agency accomplished a great deal under Laurie’s leadership,” said board president Bob Olwig. “We thank her for her nearly five years of tireless dedication to St. Patrick Center.”

The Board of Directors named Chief Development Officer Mary Kitley as Interim CEO. The Board formed a search committee and hired an outside search firm to assist with hiring a new CEO. We will announce our new executive in the near future.

St. Patrick Center accomplished several goals and actions items during Year One of the three-year Strategic Plan. The agency focused on Program Delivery and Innovation; Advocacy; Revenue Growth and Diversification; and Organizational Effectiveness Successes include the new Hospital to Housing pilot program; expanded landlord engagement; increased monthly donors; and new monthly management reports.

The primary focus of Year Two will be Revenue Growth and Diversification. Key Initiatives include increasing unrestricted contributions through major gifts and monthly giving; securing new grant opportunities; and optimizing/monetizing the use of our building.
