Los Angeles Child Guidance Clinic

Los Angeles, CA


m/Oppenheim Associates is assisting the Los Angeles Child Guidance Clinic in the search for a new President & Chief Executive Officer. As part of that process, we are contacting members of the community for suggestions and nominations. For more information, please review the complete Position Description.

The Los Angeles Child Guidance Clinic seeks a visionary chief executive to broaden the organization’s base of financial support and rapidly expand best-in-class, compassionate, trauma-informed care to underserved children, youth and adults in Los Angeles. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President & CEO serves as the Clinic’s overall spokesperson, representative and change agent, and cultivates strong working relationships with public agency leaders, elected officials, community leaders, services partners and donors. Ideal candidates will have executive management experience in large-scale organizations serving low-income, under-resourced communities, and have a particular knowledge of healthcare markets and clinical competence in behavioral health.

Founded in 1924 as one of the eight demonstration clinics by the Commonwealth Fund of New York and what is now known as the Mental Health Association in Los Angeles County, the Los Angeles Child Guidance Clinic is the oldest continuously operating agency of its kind in the West. The Clinic annually serves 3,500 individuals and families in Central and South Los Angeles through a diverse portfolio of programs designed to empower children, youth and their families to reach their goals in school, build healthy relationships and enjoy emotional well-being. It has an annual budget of $17.5m, publicly funded service contracts of $20m and a staff of over 200. The Clinic will increasingly incorporate more diverse services for adults into its programs over the next years, which will require major changes in how the programs and infrastructure are managed and funded.
