August 8, 2021 – Shelter Diversion Specialist/Program Coordinator
This is a combined position that joins the Shelter Diversion Specialist (SDS) position with Family Promise, and the Housing Advocate Network (HAN) Coordinator positions.
The SDS will focus on shelter diversion services to divert families from needing to access shelter services. The specialist will work with families to identify solutions and alternative housing arrangements that will quickly resolve the family crisis. Through a combination of effective problem solving, utilization of existing community resources, and accessing of formal and informal networks that the family has, the specialist will provide a combination of direct services and/or financial assistance to unhoused families with children with the goal of obtaining alternate safe and eventually stable housing arrangements.
The HAN Program Coordinator will help coordinate volunteers, facilitate volunteer/participant matches, provide accountability and oversight to volunteers and collaborate with HAN Program Director to identify and address program needs. HAN cultivates and supports a network of volunteer leaders to: build relationships with and assist individuals and families who are unhoused with finding housing; assist individuals with maintaining housing before becoming unhoused; raise community awareness around the causes of homelessness; work together to change root causes of homelessness and conduct activities to create systemic change.
