WSCP has a robust strategic plan to guide the organization’s efforts from 2022-2025. This plan outlines a detailed roadmap that gives the Pantry a strong sense of direction and measurable 4 goals. It enables the organization to pursue impactful initiatives that are closely connected to the objectives, goals and strategic pillars and grounded in the vision and mission. The Board and WCSP leadership have positioned the organization for significant growth and transformation in the coming years. This transformation will occur on both a strategic and operational level and brings with it significant opportunities to fulfill the Pantry’s mission. With the addition of the Virtual Pantry, improvements to the in-person pantry, expanded supportive services and the focus on further outreach into DuPage and Will counties, the Pantry is well positioned to grow and provide new opportunities for collaboration and partnership with clients and the community. The Pantry has a budget of about $1.8 million, a staff of 10, a dynamic Board with 14 directors and a robust core of volunteers.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) serves as the leader of WSCP and reports directly to the Board of Directors. In partnership with the Board and staff team, this leader is ultimately responsible for the success of the mission of WSCP and the fiscal health of the organization. The CEO will be the primary face of the organization to major constituents including donors, partners, media and the community in general. In addition, the CEO will work closely with the Board and support members in their roles. The CEO will have primary responsibility for establishing and implementing the strategy and infrastructure needed to grow WSCP’s mission delivery and financial resources. This individual will lead the staff team to top level performance across all functions, while maintaining a strong, supportive culture. The person in this role must be able to balance analytics with action and be confident in driving the strategy of the organization. It is expected that the CEO will lead the delivery of the vision of a community without hunger while embodying WSCP’s values of community, compassion, dignity, hope and service.
