Jan. 2019: Granada House Searching for a New Executive Director
The Granada House Board of Directors, with mixed feelings of sadness and deep gratitude, acknowledge that our beloved Executive Director Deb Larson-Venable will retire after 36 years of brilliant leadership, effective August 31, 2019. During her tenure, Deb has been on the cutting edge of new treatments, led the Granada house through relocation which included fighting City Hall and winning, expanded services to include sober living and many new support groups, increased funding, and fought vehemently through an ongoing drug epidemic. Her leadership at the Granada House has saved countless lives and generations of families. We are truly grateful for her service and that she has committed to help the Board in ensuring a successful transition so our vital mission carries on.
The Granada House was founded in 1981 with a mission to help residents live productively and achieve long-term recovery. The House uses a holistic approach: physical, mental, and spiritual, with a strong emphasis on social inclusion with regards to racial, ethnic, socio-economic status, disability, health, and sexual orientation. It is a dynamic, nurturing community that responds to individual needs, as it endorses mutual understanding and respect.
The Board of Directors will be accepting applications for the Executive Director position between January 31 and February 28. The start date will be July 1st, 2019 which will allow for a two-month overlap and training period.
