Position Announcement: Executive Director

The Center For Wisdom’s Women (CWW) is seeking a chief executive to lead our non-profit organization through a period of exciting expansion and growth. In the heart of downtown Lewiston, the Center offers safe and sacred opportunities for women in the community to heal from adverse life experiences, learn to thrive, and enrich each other’s lives.


The CWW was founded 20 years ago by three sisters from the Daughters of Wisdom who wanted to offer women space to build community. The women’s center became a staple in the lives of many and grew so quickly that in 2008 the sisters were no longer able to maintain it. The CWW would have closed in 2008, however, a dedicated group of volunteers ensured it stayed open. It is now a secular, independent non-profit with 4,000 visits per year, welcoming 142 guests last year alone.
