The Search for a New Staff Director for the Halton Poverty Roundtable

It is with a heavy heart that I have offered my resignation to the Halton Poverty Roundtable.  This decision was not an easy one;  I have had the honor of working with what has to be THE most phenomenal group of volunteers over the last five and a half years.

I am deeply appreciative of the mentors I have had in this community, and of how much I have learned about the ingredients necessary for collaboration to be successful. I continue to be inspired by our members, the partners who work with us in our working groups, our visionary funders, and a generous Halton community that has rallied to the call for help; the realization that it takes all of us to tackle poverty, and not just some of us.

In the time I have served in this role, the Halton Poverty Roundtable has developed it’s voice, become a charity, and worked with over 100 cross-sector community partners in Halton, across the province, and also nationally. I am fiercely proud of what our team has built together, and feel privileged to have been a part of the journey. The process wasn’t always easy and it was always worth it!

I will be supporting the transition process over the next few months and will be joining the Tamarack Institute team as a Manager of Cities in early 2018.  I hope to continue to support the HPRT efforts in this new capacity.  Halton is the community I live in so this isn’t goodbye as much as it’s engaging in the work from a different perspective.

Here’s where you come in; we need your help! We are currently recruiting for the new Director of Community Engagement.

Are you, or do you know someone who is:

  • Passionate about community collaboration? 
  • A servant leader?
  • Energized by the idea of driving the realization of a community generated vision?

If you said yes to all of these questions then this may be the ideal role for you or someone you know! Click here for more information.
