Search for Chief of Programs

Pine Street Inn

Boston, MA


Pine Street Inn (PSI), a nationally recognized nonprofit that provides a full spectrum of homeless services and is dedicated to ending homelessness in the Boston area, seeks a Chief of Programs (COP) to join its leadership team.


Established in 1969 as an emergency shelter, Pine Street Inn has grown to become the largest nonprofit resource for homeless and formerly homeless people in New England, serving more than 2,000 individuals daily and 10,000 annually. The Mission of Pine Street Inn is to partner with homeless individuals to help them move from the streets and shelter to a home and to assist formerly homeless individuals in retaining housing. The organization provides street outreach, emergency services, supportive housing, job training, and connections to employment. Pine Street Inn has earned its reputation as a tireless advocate for collaborative solutions to end homelessness.


With a staff of 540 and an operating budget of $84 million, Pine Street Inn helps people reach their highest level of independence and get back to a place they can call home. The organization provides a full spectrum of services that includes lifesaving street outreach and emergency shelter, long-term solutions such as supportive housing and job training, and a new generation of innovative strategies to end homelessness for all who come through its doors. While much has changed over time, its original value of respect and dignity for everyone it serves remains constant.


The Chief of Programs will report directly to the Deputy Director and work closely with the executive leadership team to collaboratively articulate, implement and operationalize the strategic vision and mission of Pine Street Inn. The COP will be responsible for all programmatic operations and will continually evaluate program effectiveness to exceed regulatory and contractual obligations and ensure nimble service delivery in support of ending homelessness. The COP will be a dynamic leader that engages staff to find innovative approaches to serve PSI clients to promote success in all of PSI’s programs.
