About PHC Northwest
Founded in 1951, PHC Northwest (PHC) is a Portland, Oregon-based 501(c)3 nonprofit that creates opportunities for people to overcome barriers, achieve independence, and realize a stronger sense of purpose through training, employment and housing.

As a Qualified Rehabilitation Facility (QRF), PHC Northwest offers diversified business lines that provide employees with technical skills that can earn them a living wage to pay taxes, live independently, and raise families. PHC Northwest is firmly committed to the disabled community in the form of affordable housing, training and employment. To learn more, visit our website at

The Opportunity
In April 2015, Alysa Rose joined PHC Northwest as President & CEO, to lead PHC through organizational and culture change that is across the organization. At this pivotal point in PHC’s history, the organization is focused on four strategic initiatives:

1. Protect and Grow our business lines
2. Improve Systems that ensure the efficiency and quality of our work
3. Develop awesome People and culture
4. Reintroduce PHC with a new Brand to become well-known, well-understood and admired

In order to deliver on these initiatives, PHC is recruiting new members to the Board of Directors. These new Board members will add their knowledge, skills, and talent in order to bolster the organization’s objectives as it moves forward.

PHC is specifically looking for new Board members who possess expertise in the following areas:

• Governance
• Business Development/Sales
• Entrepreneurship
• CEO/ED-level Leadership
• Advocacy
• Government/Public Affairs
• Legal Counsel
• Marketing and Communications
• Organizational Development
• Real Estate Development
• Strategic Finance

Rather than operating as a traditional fundraising/philanthropic Board, PHC is looking for Board members who can help PHC achieve its mission by expanding its customer base. Board members are expected to serve up to three consecutive two-year terms in which they will be responsible for attending quarterly board meetings, serving on at least one Board Committee (Audit/Finance, Compensation, Policy/Governance, Business Development, and others TBD), and assisting organizational leadership as needed.

Individuals who have been impacted by a disability, either personally or within their family, are especially encouraged to pursue a position as a member of the Board of Directors.
