Executive Director

CHS Welcomes New Executive Director Angel Hoffman

 

Congregation Har Shalom has implemented one our most important strategic plan initiatives – the hiring of our first Executive Director. A search committee was formed over a year ago. Interviews began last spring and continued, after a new job posting, through the fall. Finalists for the position met with the search committee, the Rabbi, and representatives of the staff and the Board. 

The culmination of this process was the unanimous recommendation to hire Angel Hoffman as our Executive Director. The Board approved the employment offer at their meeting on December 7th. Angel was offered and accepted the position and will be joining us full-time on January 16, 2018. She has graciously agreed to attend our Special Congregational Meeting on December 17 to meet members and staff, so please be sure to introduce yourself to Angel during the socializing time there.

Angel Hoffman lives in Fort Collins and is currently the Director of Stepping Stones Adult Day Services in Loveland. Angel started that program over 16 years ago and has built it into a thriving and dynamic service for the elderly and their families. She is especially proud of the successful expansion of the program from a small room in a local church, to a designated facility with space to serve many more people. She was able to accomplish this by leading a $1.2 million capital campaign and designing the changes with her staff to best meet the needs of their clients.

Angel has a Master’s Degree in Gerontology with a focus on Management/Administration and a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies. Previous to running Stepping Stones, she was a social worker at McKee Medical Center and the Director of Social Services at Columbine Care West. She brings to Har Shalom extensive professional experience in development of new programs, grant writing, fund-raising, developing and managing a budget, leading staff, board, and volunteers, strategic planning, change management, community outreach and collaborations, volunteer engagement, customer service, and much more.

After years developing and growing the Stepping Stones program, Angel says she is ready for new challenges. She writes in her acceptance notice: “I look forward to meeting and building relationships with the rest of the board, staff and congregation. I am excited for this new opportunity in my career as, together, we exceed the dreams and goals of Har Shalom.”

Thanks are due to members of the search committee for their commitment to this extended process. Valerie Mauksch and Rick Schiller (co-chairs), Julie Dubin, Jaime Dale, Neil Sherrod, Susan Baum, and Ginny Riley. Thanks also to board and staff members who participated in the interview process:  Ilene Forsyth, Heather Regan, Josh Goldstein, Kyla Pfeif, Madi Lapidot, and Rabbi Shimon Moch.
