President & CEO – New England Village

President and CEO
Pembroke, MA

New England Village (NEV), an organization that provides residential and day program services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), seeks a President and CEO (CEO). Since 1972, NEV has provided a dynamic, supportive, and enriching environment and a multitude of social, vocational, educational, recreational, and therapeutic opportunities for its residents and other individuals, empowering them to realize their potential and pursue their dreams.

NEV was founded by a group of parents who envisioned a residential community where their soon-to-be-adult children with I/DD could live and thrive in dignity and as independently as possible. Family members remain the organization’s center of gravity, creating a strong culture that shapes its programming and services. Each participant is attentively supported by skilled direct care and health care professionals at a level most appropriate to their ability and in the least restrictive, most nurturing environment possible to ensure lifelong learning and ongoing development of skills and abilities. New England Village is a vibrant and inclusive community that fosters strong interpersonal relationships and encourages active participation within NEV and with the broader community.

Located 35 miles from Boston in Massachusetts’ South Shore region, NEV supports 80 residents in 17 comfortable and well-maintained homes on its beautiful, wooded 75-acre main site. Day service offerings and enrichment programs, supporting 169 individuals, are broad in scope and are housed in impressive facilities, including the Efron Center for Enrichment (ECE), the Career and Community Exploration Center (CCEC), and the state-of-the-art Sollar Wellness Center (SWC). The residential and day services enable individuals with a range of disabilities to explore, experience, and benefit from a variety of individualized programming opportunities. In recent years, NEV has moved away from sheltered workshop employment and has instead developed a program providing workforce development and supervised job placements with local businesses.

Throughout its nearly 50-year history, NEV has been a secure and successful organization, distinguished by the high level of satisfaction reported by participants and families, its beautiful facilities, and its endowment. Consistent with its goal of greater integration of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities into the community, NEV has worked strategically and diligently to cultivate an environment in which people of all abilities interact with each other in meaningful ways. New England Village has been successful in its efforts to both involve NEV participants in the wider South Shore community and to involve this broader community in Village life, while at the same time retaining the model so integral to NEV’s success.

The new CEO will bring a demonstrated commitment to the mission of NEV, along with a record of vision, strategic thinking, and sound fiscal and operational management skills. They will have proven experience leading organizations or units of compatible purpose and similar complexity.
