Executive Director Job Announcement

Pee Wee Homes is hiring for a full-time Executive Director. Please read the full position announcement, including responsibilities and requirements here.

About Pee Wee Homes: 

Founded in 2016, Pee Wee Homes is an innovative non-profit organization based in Chapel Hill/Carrboro with a mission to create dignified, affordable, tiny homes in a caring community for, and with, people transitioning out of homelessness. We build, manage, and support affordable, accessible, small homes — homes that individuals with fixed income or earning minimum wage can afford; homes that allow older individuals to age in community; and, importantly, homes that support independence in the context of community.

Pee Wee Homes has developed three small affordable housing communities of seven total housing units. The seven residents of these homes have made the transition out of homelessness, collectively accumulating over a dozen years of housing stability. Another site that includes three additional homes is under development. We have identified and are exploring several more promising sites. Pee Wee Homes has an operating budget of ~$250,000 per year and supportive leadership, including a resident support coordinator and active board of directors, half with lived experience of homelessness.

About the Position: 

Pee Wee Homes is at an exciting stage of growth and development. We recently finished a strategic plan. This year, we added a resident support staff position to provide ongoing support to our seven residents. And we will soon break ground on our next three Pee Wee Homes!

We are looking to hire an Executive Director to lead the implementation of our strategic vision and mission, to coordinate and manage our small staff and volunteer team, to spearhead our fundraising and stewardship, to help us build more homes, and to strengthen the Pee Wee Homes community. This is Pee Wee Homes’ only full-time staff position and requires proactive coordination and engagement with our resident support coordinator, board members, interns, residents, partners, and a range of community stakeholders.

Position Details: 

  • This full-time, salaried position will report to Pee Wee Homes’ Executive Committee and will be based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. This position is negotiable for a part-time (80%) position depending on the candidate’s experience and preference. Pee Wee Homes does not have a central office but has access to a shared office space. While a substantial portion of the administrative work can be performed remotely, the position requires a significant in-person presence. Frequent face-to-face meetings in the Chapel Hill area are essential for effective organizational leadership and tenant/community engagement.

  • Salary range is $62,000-$68,000 per year, commensurate with experience.

  • Benefits include health insurance reimbursement, retirement contribution, and generous PTO.

To Apply: Submit a resume and cover letter to info@peeweehomes.org. Priority application deadline is October 15th. Position open until filled.
