About Us

William Temple House has a 56-year history of responding to the needs of our community through essential programs and services, and we are a passionate group of people dedicated to our mission and social justice. We are amid some big organizational cultural shifts because of our equity work and because of COVID-19. Our staff and board believe deeply in our social justice roots and have a commitment to equity that we’re working to instill more authentically in our operations. It is a very exciting time of change, and we are looking for someone that is willing to be a full participant in shaping the future of this program and our organization.

We recently approved a strategic plan (the first in decades) and DEI framework, which serve as our roadmaps. Our staff participate in regular meetings to keep information flowing across departments. We completed a staff climate survey in 2020 and are now identifying areas of work that we will collaborate on in the coming years. We plan to conduct an additional survey in early 2022. One of these includes our staff meetings and how we create a more collaborative model.

We have a deep appreciation for our team members and celebrate staff and volunteer birthdays and anniversaries and, pre-COVID, regularly held “fun committee” events.
