Positions Available

  • Director of Finance and Administration * F/T

    Job Title: Director of Finance & Administration
    Program: Administration
     
    The Director of Finance reports to the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) and provides ongoing
    support and guidance to ensure Children’s Home leadership team has accurate financial and
    programmatic data required to make informed decisions.  Primary duties include providing accurate and
    timely monthly financial statements, development of budgets, internal and external reporting, and
    performing financial analysis while supervising auditing and control processes and procedures that seek
    to minimize risk. The Director of Finance plays a fundamental role on the leadership team in developing,
    executing, and monitoring strategy.
    Organization Overview:
    Children’s Home of York (CHOY) is an accredited (Council on Accreditation) non-profit human
    service organization. We are committed to serving our community’s most vulnerable children and
    families. CHOY is deeply rooted in the York community and neighboring counties where we opened
    the doors to an orphanage in 1865 to care for children who lost their parents during the Civil War.
    Today, CHOY is a comprehensive, trauma-informed, child welfare agency offering a broad range of
    essential services including prevention, foster care, adoption, psychiatric residential treatment,
    independent living group homes, and a partial hospitalization program (PHP). Most of the children we
    serve have experienced disrupted attachments with family and profound trauma and loss.
    Consequently, much of our work seeks to create a loving home and/or a safe therapeutic environment
    to help our children heal and ultimately flourish. A more comprehensive overview of programs and
