About DePaul Community Resources:
For 47 years, DePaul Community Resources has opened doors to hope and belonging for families and individuals across Central and Southwest Virginia. As a social impact organization, DePaul strives every day to change the world by improving the lives of children, families, and individuals with developmental disabilities.

DePaul exists to address the gaps where resources are lacking to improve the quality of life of these individuals. Its Child and Family Services (CFS) division provides foster care, independent living, outpatient counseling, and adoption to prepare foster children and adoptive families with the services and support necessary for each waiting child to find a permanent, forever home.

The Developmental Disabilities Division is committed to increasing self-sufficiency and promoting the growth of individuals throughout their lives (not just when they were young) through sponsored residential programs and the new agency directed services program. Two daytime support centers not only provide relief and a critical resource for families who have loved ones with developmental disabilities but also allow the individuals to integrate and engage with others, elevating the significance of their dignity and worth.

Through two service divisions and eleven service locations throughout the state of Virginia — Child and Family Services and Developmental Disabilities, 150 staff, a network of nearly 400 care providers, foster and adoptive parents, and a host of volunteers, advocates, and partners, DePaul provides safe homes, permanent families, integrated community support, and opportunities for deep healing across Virginia.

The Vice President of Marketing and Development is a member of the Executive Leadership team and leads the agency in marketing, external communications, public relations, community events, and legislative advocacy and grows the organization’s capacity through development strategies and home-finding efforts.

This person must effectively represent the organization in the community, build relationships, and work collaboratively in all settings.
