Cancer Wellness Center
Offering services free of charge to anyone impacted by cancer has been the hallmark of The Cancer Wellness Center since day one. At its founding in 1989, the Center was a grassroots-effort focused on peer support, employing contract licensed mental health professionals to provide support groups to cancer patients and their caregivers at a modest location in Skokie, IL. Over the years, support services have expanded to include professional counseling and a wide breadth of mental health, wellness and educational programs.
The Center has prided itself on being a reliable source of support and information for the cancer community. Healthcare partners have come to rely on the Center’s services which are not available elsewhere in the community. The Center serves both adults and children diagnosed with cancer, family members/caregivers, and those who have experienced the loss of a loved one to cancer.
The Cancer Wellness Center seeks an experienced Director of Finance and Operations (DFO) who is highly-organized, team oriented, and mission-minded. The Director of Finance and Operations is responsible for day-to-day financial management of the organization’s $1.8M budget, investment oversight, human resources and information technology. The DFO will ensure that financial transactions, policies and procedures meet the organization’s short and long-term strategic goals and objectives. Reporting to the Executive Director and the Board of Directors to support governance responsibilities, the DFO will be visible both internally and externally as a representative of the organization
