Director of Human Services
The City of Lynchburg is seeking a visionary and inclusive thought leader to serve as it’s next Director of Human Services. The Lynchburg Department of Human Services, which includes traditional Social Services functions (benefits, children’s services, foster care, adult services, etc.), combined with the region’s Juvenile Services functions (a Regional Detention Center, a Group Home, and Outreach program), has the potential to make substantial impacts on the quality of life of families and children in need of care both in the City and throughout the region. We seek a leader who is a competent manager of the critical functions of the department and has exceptional financial and personnel management skills. The ideal candidate is also a visionary leader who recognizes how our human services functions impact the big picture of a thriving citizenry in our community and can transform the agency into a true leader in the field that drives the practice of human services in Virginia.
