The Need

According to Behavioral Health System Baltimore, 1 in 9 people are battling addiction in greater Baltimore.  The consequences extend far beyond chronic homelessness and COVID-19 has only exacerbated the epidemic of addiction overdose and death.  Alcohol and substance use disorders not only destroy families, but also devastate entire communities.  And the problem is not confined to low-income or minority neighborhoods, as many people wrongly assume. In truth, addiction does not know or care about a person’s race, culture, faith, neighborhood, education, vocation, financial status – none of those protect against addiction. Addiction recovery in a safe, secure residential environment is desperately needed.

History & Programs

Helping Up Mission, Inc. (HUM) is a faith-based, non-denominational, Christian organization building a community of hope by offering permanent solutions to those experiencing homelessness, poverty and addiction.  HUM provides hope to the poor and homeless through programs designed to meet their individual physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs.  Compassionate and substantial residential care is given to 550 men and women in need, without consideration of race, economic or religious status at its campuses in East Baltimore.

HUM operates a 500-bed facility for men built around a 12-month Spiritual Recovery Program, in addition to other support programs offered through community partnerships.  HUM believes God’s love can set people free — from drugs and alcohol, from poverty and homelessness, and from any other self-destructive behavior.  However, it’s not enough to tell a person who has struggled with addiction for years that “Jesus loves you” and expect a miraculous recovery. Contrary to common thinking, addiction is not simply the result of poor personal choices, immorality, or weakness. It’s much more complex.

Consequently, Helping Up’s approach to treatment is holistic in nature. Our programs integrate the practical needs of clients — food, clothing, shelter — with their clinical, mental health, medical, educational, and vocational needs. All of that is built upon a Gospel foundation. And by God’s grace, it can lead to lasting change.

Position Summary

The HUM Senior Director of Men’s Programs will be responsible for the overall leadership and spiritual direction of the 225-bed flagship Spiritual Recovery Program (SRP) at the mission working collaborative with the spiritual life, program and treatment team. The SRP integrates the latest scientific understanding of addiction treatment with intense spiritual development. For one full year, participants live at HUM in a 12-Step residential community and are immersed in a culture of healing and wellness to address physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs through four timed phases:

  • SEEDS OF HOPE (Days 1-45): Counseling, Support Groups, Spiritual Training, and Work Therapy
  • ALPHA PHASE (Days 46-105) Personal & Spiritual Growth, Outside Meetings. Healthy Living, and Program Individualization
  • OMEGA PHASE (Days 106-195) Personal Growth, Education, Career, Fellowship, and Relapse Prevention
  • LIFE PREP (Days 196-365) Education, Employment, Accountability, Health, and Spiritual Growth

Leadership Opportunity

As HUM expands with the March 2022 opening of a new 250-bed Center for Women & Children, the mission is seeking to broaden our senior leadership team. This person will work closely with the Chief Operating Officer (COO) on continued program development and expansion for the men’s programs.  The Sr. Director will be responsible for all aspects of Program, Spiritual Life, and Treatment.

HUM seeks a Senior Director who is a strategic and collaborative team leader who respects and appreciates HUM’s history and current level of service, with experience operating programs with this focus and scale.  This person should be a seasoned leader who has led in development of programs and who brings solid leadership experience in building teams and delivering program outcomes.

The following experience and values are essential for the candidate in this role:

  • Mature Faith – We are seeking a leader of deep personal faith, a history of involvement in church community, and in agreement theologically with Helping Up Mission. The right leader will have the ability to think and act decisively with purpose and integrity.

  • Proven Team Leadership – The successful candidate will be a proven leader with the experience, vision and energy required to lead a 500-bed facility for men.
  • Results-Oriented – This leader will ensure that HUM increasingly measures the results of its programs, demonstrating the various ways lives have been changed by the mission using the fifteen domain Progress to Life Transformation Matrix tracked through our program database.
  • Exceptional Ability to Prioritize and Delegate – The successful candidate will possess exceptional judgment, flexibility, and the demonstrated ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment, juggling multiple priorities and responding to a variety of constituent needs.

  • As staff, we acknowledge that we, too, are powerless and unmanageable in some aspect of our own lives – whether we have chemical addiction backgrounds or not
  • As staff, we consider every client to be as significant a person as we are – understanding each of us has the capacity to relapse in our thinking or actions today
