Gary Louis Davis

Term:

Since June 2007

Profile:

B.A. Washington University M.Div. Yale University ordained minister, United Church of Christ pastor: Falls Village Congregational Church, Falls Village, CT; Woodmont United Church of Christ, Milford, CT; Lake Oswego United Church of Christ, Lake Oswego, OR Resource Center Coordinator: Holden Village, Chelan, WA Hired by Operation Nightwatch, June, 2007

Leadership Statement:

Not long ago, I used my Netflix subscription to watch the DVD edition of the HBO series, . is about the rough-and-tumble town that the arose in the Black Hills of Dakota Territory because of the gold rush of the 1870s. The town had the notorious reputation of being a blot of complete lawlessness.     One of the advantages of watching the series on DVD is that you can overlay the episodes with commentary tracks voiced by the show's principals. On one of them, David Milch, the series' creator, says that what attracted him to the subject matter was the ability to explore the dynamics that lead human beings to bring order from chaos, civilization from barbarity. One of the prime dynamics, Milch discovered, was simply that of people learning the humanization that comes from opening up and learning each other's backgrounds, and building the bonds that comes from sharing personal stories.     That's the very function served by Operation Nightwatch. The streets of our own city can be as raw as any Deadwood. But Nightwatch is about humanizing us--of us--not only those who may make the streets their home, but also those of us whose ordinary sensibilities would have us question whether we should even approach them.    "Here," we wish to say, "your own story will be honored. Here, there is a place to connect where you need not feel so alone."    For those who experience the rootlessness of life on the streets, it's the first step toward bringing order from chaos.    And in that, there is the promise of healing.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

Program Description:

Operation Nightwatch acquired the Mobile Hospitality Center in 2010 to respond to the changing realities of Portland's homeless population. Fully 4/5 of Portland's homeless are now found outside the downtown core, away from most services. The Mobile Hospitality Center replicates the Hospitality Center experience in a cul-de-sac or parking lot, distributing food, clothing, and blankets, and offering a human connection as an antidote to social isolation.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

In recognition that 4/5 of Portland's homeless are now to be found outside the downtown core, in 2010 Nightwatch commissioned its Mobile Hospitality Center to serve those in outlying areas. Nightwatch remains the only agency providing homeless services in the evening hours.     In the next year, we plan to extend our outreach further by offering elementary health services.     The Board of Directors has adopted a five-year strategic plan which includes a vision of opening a second bricks-and-mortar Hospitality Center.
