Innisfree seeks a new Executive Director
Innisfree Village is seeking an Executive Director to lead our nonprofit, nonsectarian lifesharing community of adults with intellectual disabilities. This individual will succeed the incumbent Executive Director who is retiring after 18 years of leading the organization. Though we regret to see her go, the impact our current director has made is profound and we await a new era in Innisfree’s nearly 45-year existence. Innisfree’s vision is to be a model therapeutic environment, emphasizing empowerment, interdependence, and mutual respect of all community members. If this vision appeals to you, read more for this position’s full description.
Who are We?
Innisfree Village is a fully licensed, residential community with adults with intellectual disabilities. Founded in 1971, this nonprofit, nonsectarian community is located on 550 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains outside the university town of Charlottesville, Virginia. We are dedicated to a lifesharing community model.
Lifesharing at Innisfree means that residents and their volunteer caregivers live as families in the community’s 15 houses. In this close-knit environment, people develop profound relationships based on mutual needs, respect, and love.
