Catholic Housing Services believes everyone deserves the right to a safe, affordable place to call home. Inspired by this vision, CHS develops, owns and manages affordable housing programs for low-income families and individuals; currently including 2,100 units of housing in 50 different buildings across Western Washington. We provide supportive services for people who have experienced homelessness, low income seniors, farm worker families, and those who have special physical and mental needs.
Following best practices in serving individuals with chronic histories of homelessness, CHS has developed several Permanent Supportive Housing Communities that follow a Housing First, Harm Reduction based model of services. As CHS has continued to grow and expand, we have identified a need for leadership and vision for this expanding group of properties in King County.
This growth position is an exciting opportunity for the new Division Director to bring leadership around Housing First best practices to our agency to ensure we provide the highest quality housing to chronically homeless individuals.
The Division Director, Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) is accountable for overseeing and ensuring the quality of our housing and the financial sustainability of a portfolio of 13 affordable housing developments as designated by the Director of Property Management. The Division Director oversees housing operations, supervises housing management and maintenance staff, and is accountable for financial and key performance indicators of the assigned portfolio; and collaborates with other departments or community agencies that provide supportive services to residents.
The Management Staff consists of Business Managers and Maintenance Staff. Business Managers at each site oversee the property management activities on site, and coordinate with the maintenance team for service to their buildings. The Division Director will directly supervise these Business Managers and oversee all aspects of the housing operations of this group of 15 buildings, ensuring high quality housing promoting housing stability, sound financial management, compliance with funder requirements, and long-term planning for building maintenance to ensure residents are well served by these buildings for many years to come.
Additionally the Division Director will participate in advocacy activities and represent the agency to the government and community organizations that work to serve the poor and vulnerable.
