Timothy Hill Children’s Ranch is a non-profit organization with a rich 40 year history fueled by a vision of transforming lives through Christ’s love. Timothy Hill is currently searching for a dynamic leader, with a proven track record in residential care, with strong supervisory experience, who is passionate about helping at-risk young adult men bridge the gap between adolescence to independence. 

The Transitional Program Director oversees the totality of operations of the Transitional Program at Timothy Hill’s Smithville, TN campus. This program currently serves young men ages 17-21.

Success in this position requires a high level of administrative ability, passion for the success of disadvantaged young people, excitement around team development, an ability to understand large amounts of regulatory guidelines and the ability to work independently.
