Its unique approach to supporting children during loss through bereavement camps and day programs has given the organization recognition and support across the country, from its original roots in Richmond, Virginia, having served over 15,000 children to date.

With over a million dollar annual operating budget, and a strong volunteer base of over 600 in four states, the CZC Board is challenged to find an effective executive who brings the compassion and the qualifications to lead a service-oriented organization but also has strong administrative and operational clarity.

On a day-to-day basis, the CEO will be the “face” of CZC, epitomizing qualities of a compassionate, skilled, articulate servant-leader who
understands and appreciates all aspects of nonprofit management.
