About Us: At Mothers’ Milk Bank Northeast we believe that every baby deserves the chance to thrive. We provide equitable access to safe pasteurized donor human milk to save the lives of fragile babies and work to support family and community health. Our 20+ staff members work hard to build and sustain connections between generous mothers who donate their excess milk and babies in need, most urgently preterm babies in neonatal intensive care units. In addition to the processing and distribution of donor milk, we advocate for better access to donor milk and more support for families, and we educate the public about these issues. We have grown rapidly in recent years, starting as a grassroots organization that now serves a large geographic region. We are excited at the possibilities that enhancing our communications and marketing division can bring to help us realize these aims. Reporting directly to the Director of Development, this a great opportunity for someone with a creative mix of skill, can-do attitude, strategic vision, and positive energy.
