For those living in family public housing, the Resident Service Coordinator links them to supportive services that enable participants to increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.
This position role strongly emphasizes purposeful resident engagement, service planning, problem solving and program tracking. This includes assessing the needs of residents and developing and managing strategic partnerships with service providers, and collaborating with the Property Manager to ensure housing stabilization.
This is a grant funded position for three years, with the goal of renewing the grant at the end of the three years. Continued employment at the end of the three year grant cycle is dependent on funding.
