More Information

Jordan has served as Seven Hills’ president since 1995, managing for a quarter-century a sprawling organization including more than 160 locations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and seven countries abroad.

The human services agency has a budget topping $250 million, a more than tenfold rise since Jordan’s tenure began, and an employee count of 4,800 — roughly 3,000 of which are in Central Mass., providing an economic impact of $192 million. It serves more than 25,000 clients at centers including behavioral health, employment programs and residential care. Seven Hills’ partnerships under Jordan have grown in the past two years to include the adoption agency Children’s Friend and youth behavioral health and educational services provider YOU Inc. The nonprofit has extended its reach to include coronavirus-related care and opening a workforce training program and cafe in the former historic Stearns Tavern.

What makes Central Mass. unique? Our diversity! More than 26% of all businesses in Greater Worcester were founded and are run by first-generation immigrants. That alone speaks volumes about our rich ethnic, racial, and cultural traditions.

David Jordan trivia: I grew up near Second Beach in Middletown, R.I. and spent my teenage years surfing and playing baseball. In college, I was a competitive wrestler. I married the amazing Dr. Kathee Jordan, whom I have the joy of working with each day. I have more tattoos than anyone might think; all carefully hidden of course!
