Our vision is a community where a safety net exists for all people, which includes adequate food, shelter, healthcare and employment.
In 2017, we served approximately 4000 households distributing nearly one million pounds of food. After 50 years of neighbors helping neighbors, this year, Fishline will move into a new building. Our new 15,000 square foot facility includes a grocery-store style market for those needing our food bank services on the first floor, and a Comprehensive Services Center (CSC) on the second floor which brings together the best providers of basic human services under the same roof for the first time in Kitsap County. Working cooperatively, our new CSC addresses client issues at their root, helping clients move out of a need for services and onto stable lives.

The Fishline Executive Director will be a high profile leader in the North Kitsap community, recognizing its role as a “go-to” organization for helping people. Reporting to the fifteen-member Board of Directors, the Executive Director will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for Fishline’s budget, programs and mission achievement. The ED leads eleven staff and four hundred volunteers. The ED will also be responsible for nurturing and strengthening relationships with the eleven partner agencies, providing wrap-around services, that have staff and program people co-located with Fishline in its primary location.
A key responsibility area for the ED is in fundraising and revenue development. Fishline is healthy financially with a 2020 budget of $3,523,000. Revenues come from a wide variety of sources including $550,000 from the Second Season Thrift Store and $1,500,000 of in-kind contributions to the food bank. While challenging, this can be the dream job for the right candidate!
