Catholic Charities of Louisville

Program Director – Community Support Services

The Program Director of Community Support Services will provide overall management, strategic planning, and coordination of services within this department. Duties include supervising staff (including practicum students and interns), engaging with community partners, outreach efforts to targeted client populations, exploring funding opportunities, assisting in writing/developing grant applications, submitting reports, and presenting information about the department to the community and other interested stakeholders.

This position may occasionally provide direct client services as staffing needs require, but the position is essentially one of supervision and not direct service. At this time, Community Support Services includes: financial support for expecting and new parents (Lifeline Fund); rapid re-housing for survivors of domestic violence and trafficking (Rapid Rehousing/ St Vincent de Paul); direct support and programming for Hispanic families; programming for seniors; adoption support services and adoption records requests; the indigent burial program; and the Father Jack Jones Food Pantry. Services may shift as community need demands.
