Welcome to ThisIsBenMurphy.com, the online home for my work, resources, and ideas – collected over my past two decades in the social sector.
My leadership in operations, development, strategy, and governance – at the management, executive, and board levels – draws from established experience across diverse service areas including workforce development, immigration and resettlement, social entrepreneurship, financial literacy, criminal justice, capital/economic development, grant writing/fundraising, government and corporate relations, compliance, marketing/branding, and organizational strategy.
I now put my depth of experience to work as Manager of Public Grants and Program Development for the Hillside Family of Agencies, one of the largest direct providers of children and family services in the Northeast United States. The scope of my current work is primarily concentrated on Workforce Development, Capital Projects, Affordable/Supportive Housing, and Economic Development, with an emerging focus on Government Affairs, Public Policy, and Social Finance.
