The Organization

It carries out this vision by empowering residents living in high-crime areas to stop illegal activity on their streets using the civil justice system.

Position Overview

During this pivotal time of growth, the Chief Operating Officer (COO) will have the responsibility to develop operational processes that will guide all organizational functions. Act has a current annual organizational budget of $3.9 million with 39 full-time positions. Act’s 36-month plan will grow that budget to $6.4 million with 65 full-time staff by the end of 2025.

Working closely with the Founder and CEO, Reid Porter, the COO will translate the organizational vision into clearly defined procedures and Key Performance Indicators.

As an Integrator, the COO will enhance the Act ecosystem, creating synergy across all team functions including programs, development, marketing and communications, finance, human resources, and administration.

The COO’s charge is to translate the Act vision and growth plans by leveraging organizational accomplishments, including the resolution of more than 225 cases. Building on the sustainable framework to create safety and peace by reducing crime-infested properties, the mission can expand and scale.
