Hein leaves White House Faith-Based Office.


Jay Hein, director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, has resigned. Hein told The NonProfit Times that while he had planned to stay until the new administration takes office in January, he needed to return to the Midwest to aid his father who is battling cancer.

His last day was Aug. 29. A replacement had not been announced at presstime. Hein, 43, was the third director of the office. Jedd Medefind, special assistant to the President and deputy director of the OFBCI remains on the job.

Prior to his position at the White House, Hein was the founding president of the Sagamore Institute for Policy Research, an international public policy research firm headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind. In this capacity, he directed the Institute's research portfolio focusing on a range of community-based policies such as welfare-to-work, access to postsecondary education, affordable health care, and crime prevention.

He also served as vice president and chief executive officer of the Foundation for American Renewal, established by Ambassador Daniel R. Coats to provide financial grants and other support to community-based organizations while educating the general public on effective compassion principles and practices.
