Overview

Regional Access Points (RAPs) are the front door to Coordinated Entry for All (CEA). RAPs connect unhoused individuals to resources in King County including housing, employment, benefits, and basic needs. Community outreach includes food banks, libraries, and day centers. With continuous practice in Trauma-Informed Care and Motivational Interviewing, we explore all possible housing options with all households.

Responsibilities

Your Role

 

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 services to get people housed.

 

Communicate

Respond to inquiries promptly and communicate in a compassionate manner. Community members will call or walk-in requesting information and you will be ready to provide that information as available. Informed consent is important and you strive to explain complex policies in clear and consistent terms. You will use your communication skills, both written and oral, to coordinate with participants, other agencies, and community members.

 

Assess

CEA uses multiple assessments to match people with available housing resources at participating agencies. You will complete these assessments with people at multiple sites and in the field throughout the week when it is safe to do so.

 

Your Style

You thrive in a collaborative work setting where all team members are working from home. Here is what that looks like:

  • Independently prioritize daily tasks in consultation with your supervisor
  • Our team members travel up to 5 days a week throughout King County (currently, most work is completed from home)
  • Each of us works with 12+ households at a time
  • Details matter: you create and maintain organized records
  • We share all duties and responsibilities and take on other tasks as assigned
  • Learn the strengths required to overcome the challenges that participants face including discrimination and limited access to various systems
  • Committed to the mission of CCS to actively work for justice with communities struggling with poverty and the effects of intolerance and racism
