  • Overview

    The Family Connection Team partners with households who are unsheltered to connect them with community resources. The primary purpose of these relationships will be housing, but you will work with health, hygiene, and other basic needs providers to address challenges. The team is guided by three pillars: Housing First, Trauma-Informed Care, and Motivational Interviewing. Using strengths-based approaches, the team moves people into housing options that are realistic, stable, and appropriate as identified by the family. With various partners and stakeholders in Coordinated Entry for All (CEA), the team ensures all services are client-driven.

     

    This is a full time, exempt position and includes benefits and generous paid time off.  Salary range is $38,337-$42,646.50 DOQ.

    Responsibilities

    Your Role

    You are the rock that holds a team of independent members in lockstep to house as many families as possible as quickly as possible.

     

    Supervise

    You are the type of leader that works in close partnership with partner programs. You know how to foster a culture of accountability and compassion. And you are relentless in your pursuit of providing the best standard of services possible.

     

    Outreach

    You will meet people in public spaces throughout King County to listen to what they believe is their best opportunity to get to stable housing. During these meetings, you will learn their needs and discuss housing options that utilize the family’s own resiliency and creativity. These conversations ensure that their voice is incorporated throughout the process.

     

    Navigate

    You will learn about different resources in the community and their eligibility criteria. You will address any concerns participants identify in a referral, gather the required documentation needed to access housing resources, and advocate on behalf of the people you are working with.

     

    Creative Problem-Solver

    The quickest road to stable housing utilizes people’s own strengths. You will think creatively so that people can achieve the outcome they identify for themselves. You know there is no one-size-fits-all approach, so you will tailor any services you provide to the specific context.

     

    Your Style

    You are eager to tackle challenges that combine your creativity and listening skills with participants’ own skills. And you have no problem switching between independent work out in the field and working collaboratively as part of a team every day. Every day will include:

    • Travel anywhere in King County
    • Work with 10+ households at any moment
    • Maintain detailed data records of all interactions with participants
    • Share all duties and responsibilities and take on other tasks as assigned
