Incarnation House (IH) is a nonprofit afterschool program and youth center that exists to fill the gaps and provide for the needs of students at North Dallas High School. With over 90% of students enrolled at the school living under the poverty line, and a majority considered homeless or housing insecure, IH seeks to engage these students in a program that prepares them for life success. Through dinners, creative learning, tutoring, career guidance, and more, IH works with high school students to transform their future and open up their eyes to the possibilities ahead of them.

The VP of Programs ensures that IH programs systematically and intentionally achieve the goals of the agency and that those programs operate and develop toward achieving the agency’s vision. The VP of Programs ensures that programs meet funding requirements as determined through agreements with public and private sources as well as comply with applicable laws, regulations, and standards set by funding agencies.
