Executive Director, Homeshare Vermont

About HomeShare Vermont

HomeShare Vermont, Inc. (HSVT), a 40-year-old nonprofit corporation based in South Burlington, VT, has a unique mission of improving lives and communities by bringing people together to share homes. HSVT uses its comprehensive and client-driven screening and matching process to successfully match individuals seeking housing (guests) with homeshare hosts, often seniors or persons with disabilities, who have a room to share. In exchange, hosts receive companionship, assistance with household chores, and/or some rental income. This dynamic organization addresses the growing need for affordable housing while providing support to hosts and guests in a human and caring way. HSVT is a leader in the national homesharing movement and actively works with community and legislative stakeholders to create new homesharing initiatives. 

HSVT’s highly skilled, mission-driven staff team of six works in concert with a well-trained corps of volunteers to process over 700 new applications and support nearly 100 matches each year. HSVT serves seven counties in northern and central Vermont. The organization has gathered and tracked outcome data since 2001 to continually modify and improve its services. HSVT has flourished under the strong and steady leadership of Kirby Dunn, who was HSVT’s first executive director when it became an independent nonprofit corporation. Under Ms. Dunn’s leadership, HSVT grew exponentially and expanded its service area from one to seven counties. Ms. Dunn is stepping down after 23 years of service.

The organization is financially sound with a solid and expanding endowment, a $620,000 budget, and nearly $2 million in net assets. Its revenue comes through a mix of donor, grant, and event contributions; nearly half of its funding is from the State of Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living. HSVT is governed by an engaged 12-member board of directors comprised of business, community, and nonprofit leaders who contribute legal, real estate, financial, social service, and human resources expertise. 


HomeShare Vermont’s Board of Directors invites qualified candidates to apply for the opportunity to lead the organization at an exciting time. Drawing on the strengths of this well-run, fiscally stable organization, the Executive Director will collaborate with an established board of directors and skilled staff to implement a recently adopted strategic plan that further strengthens the organization and increases its mission impact. The successful candidate will be a high-energy, entrepreneurial professional who has strong leadership and management skills, keen business acumen, and a track record in fund development, employee supervision, and teambuilding.
