Help us find a new Executive Director

After a year of transition, Seafarer's Friend is ready to start moving forward.  We have rebuilt our Board, brought our expenses under control, and have actually increased our operations.  We are now prepared to plan long-term, and to hire an Executive Director to lead us into the future.  Please take a moment to read over the job description below, and pass it on to anyone you know who may be interested. 


I have greatly enjoyed the last year, and have been honored to be able to help Seafarer's Friend continue their historic mission of helping strangers to our shores.  I intend to stay involved as a volunteer ship visitor.  Thanks to all of you for your support in the last year.  The future looks bright.


God Bless,
