Now Hiring an Executive Director

March 13, 2018
Now Hiring an Executive Director

From Maggie Fox, Board President, Home Share Now

It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors announces Christina Goodwin’s departure as Executive Director of Home Share Now, effective April 27, 2018. Since 2010, Christina has played a critical role in the development and success of the organization, and while we will miss her and her inspiring leadership, we wish her the best of luck in her new endeavor as the Dean of Advancement and Alumni Relations for Vermont’s Sterling College. We want to thank her for 8 years of committed and innovative service which involved many significant accomplishments, including:

  • Expanded Home Share Now’s direct-service capacity and more than doubled the number of people matched in homeshares,
  • Added Community Mediation to our services for older tenants in low-income housing,
  • More than doubled the organization’s state appropriation,
  • Added a community volunteer component for home providers to supplement their match,
  • Established a Planned Giving Program and secured initial gifts, and
  • Transitioned to Results Based Accountability.

Over the next few months, we will be conducting a search to find the new Home Share Now Executive Director. During this transition period, it is our priority to find the best individual to lead, while maintaining our stable and effective organization. To be considered as a candidate who can help Home Share Now continue along this successful trajectory, please see the complete job description and instructions for consideration here.

Again, we cannot thank Christina enough for the dedication, passion, energy, and motivation she has given Home Share Now over the past 8 years. She will be greatly missed by the staff, Board, participants, and partners alike. We look forward to following the success of her career and are hopeful and excited for the next chapter of Home Share Now as we continue to further home sharing in Central Vermont. If you have any questions or concerns during this transition process, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at

From Christina Goodwin, Executive Director, Home Share Now 

After 8 years with Home Share Now, I recently submitted my resignation to the board in order to pursue another opportunity. My last day at Home Share Now will be April 27th.

I came to Home Share Now in July of 2010 and it’s been a really incredible run. Thanks to the overwhelming support by community partners, donors, and the Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging, and Independent Living we’ve continued to expand upon the work that was started in 2003 based on the model of HomeShare Vermont. I have the utmost gratitude to our homesharing participants who have generously invited me into their lives, shared their stories, and in many cases allowed me to share those stories with the community at large. We’ve learned so much from you. What a gift. Home Share Now is in a strong position and together we can feel good about that. I hope you’ll join me in continuing to support this beautiful work.

With thanks,

Christina Goodwin, Executive Director, Home Share Now
