Chief Executive Officer — Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (Tucson)

March 4, 2020
Position Description:

The Client

In 1985, a few concerned citizens decided to make a difference in the Tucson community's response to HIV & AIDS. They formed the Tucson AIDS Project (TAP), followed shortly by the Shanti Foundation. In 1987, a group of people living with HIV/AIDS incorporated their grassroots advocacy efforts into the People with AIDS Coalition of Tucson, PACT for Life.

Working in concert, the three agencies created an array of services for people infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS, meeting basic needs as well as more sophisticated ones, while simultaneously providing information and skill-building programs to help others prevent further infection.

In 1997, again responding to the needs of their clients and community, PACT, Shanti, and TAP merged under the name Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF) creating one of the largest nonprofit consolidations in the history of Pima County.

In 2014, SAAF took over several initiatives from Wingspan, formerly southern Arizona's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community center. This has helped to broaden SAAF's scope of services which now include the Eon Youth Lounge & Anti-Violence Programs. SAAF changed its mission to more accurately reflect its expanded reach. SAAF's new mission, to cultivate a healthy and stigma-free society through transformative action, more accurately reflects the work SAAF does in the community.

SAAF continues to be the only community-based organization in southern Arizona providing case management and ancillary support services for people living with HIV/AIDS and their families; culturally appropriate prevention/education programs to reduce the rate of infection; and LGBTQ community outreach & engagement. Upwards of 50% of SAAF's clients are Hispanic and/or bilingual, many of them immigrants.

SAAF'S 2020 operating budget is over $14 million and it employs a 107-person staff. Approximately[PC1]  93% of the organization's revenue is from government sources, including Ryan White Funds. 6% is from corporate and individual donors, and the balance is from earned income, including rent from subsidized housing for low-income tenants.

Services provided by SAAF include: Case Management, Support Services, Housing Services, the Anti-Violence Project, Food Programs and Support Groups, as well as the Travis Wright Memorial Buyers' Club.  SAAF is the primary HIV Testing and prevention program in Southern Arizona. Housing services are also provided by satellite offices in Yuma, Bisbee and Flagstaff.

With the acquisition of several initiatives from Wingspan, SAAF now operates the Thornhill Lopez Center on 4th (TLC4) a place for LGBTQ+ and allied youth ages 13-24 to visit in order to access a variety of services to support their health and well-being.

The Position

The Chief Executive Officer provides executive leadership and direction to further the agency's vision, mission, business strategy, and annual goals and objectives.
