Winnetka, IL Founded in 1911, the Community House was a gift from the Winnetka Congregational Church to the entire village as a nondenominational center for wholesome recreation, social opportunity, cultural experiences, and civic engagement. Providing the village’s first gym and numerous meeting rooms, it became the gathering place for the entire village and beyond. Thousands of people of all ages flocked to classes, scout meetings, lectures, musical performances, theater, art exhibits, and sports competitions. More than a century later, the pace has not slowed; more than 250,000 visits to the Community House take place each year. As the Community House enters the next chapter in its history, the President will provide the staff leadership and direction to fulfill the organization’s mission. In partnership with the Board of Governors and the staff, the President will be responsible for ensuring the successful future of the organization.
