Tumwater Apartments, a housing program of Catholic Housing Services, is a HUD 202 project consisting of 50 units serving elderly or disabled residents. The Resident Services Coordinator (RSC) serves as part of the on-site team but is supervised by an off-site supervisor. The RSC is charged with the tasks of creating community within the building, providing information and referrals, and collaborating with other service providers. The RSC will assist residents and outside elderly community members in obtaining the services they need or want to maintain independence, self-sufficiency, and life satisfaction. Connecting residents to social services and programs that focus on housing success, general wellness, crisis intervention, employment, education, and health and safety is the primary duty of this position.
To effectively house our residents, housing management staff and services staff strive to cooperate and work in tandem. Housing management and services staff share common goals: the health and wellbeing of residents and the sustainability of the property. Support for our residents is the overarching goal that CHS strives to achieve, and each of our employees, no matter what their role is an active participant in striving for that. The person in this position will work closely and collaborate and communicate on a regular and frequent basis with Building Management staff, including the Program Director and Facilities staff.
This position requires the employee to work in an environment where there may be exposure to blood, bodily fluids, and other potentially infectious material.
