Machiah’s House, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization with a mission to improve the lives of young women who have aged out of foster care through an innovative partnership of community resources that enhance their safety and quality of life. 

Do you enjoy volunteering your time, gifts and talents and have experience serving on an active, hands-on Board of Directors and know how to roll up your sleeves and get things accomplished? Machiah's House is looking for serious and committed board members who will be advocates and influencers for our cause; serving young women aged-out of foster care and transitioning into adulthood.
We are seeking volunteers who are passionate and want to serve our young women in providing tactical support through strategic and fundraising ideas. We are pursuing thoughtful, strategic thinkers and diplomatic "doers" who want to make a difference in the lives of our precious young women aged-out of foster care.
All board members are asked to donate at their level of comfort and participate in some of our events. As our grantors and sponsors want to know that our Board of Directors are "all in".

 We desire board members with skill sets in social media, event planning, grant research and writing, marketing and accounting. 
If you desire to launch on a new journey that will satisfy your philanthropic yearning or need to make an impact by helping with supporting young women transitioning from foster care to adulthood; please submit your resume, cover letter, and contact info to spridgen@machiahshouse.org. We gladly welcome board diversity and we look forward to speaking with you!
