Housing Coordinator- MOI Veteran Relocation
Housing for Health | San Francisco, CA | Full Time
Founded in 2004, Brilliant Corners provides innovative housing and housing-related services to California’s most vulnerable individuals, with an emphasis on those transitioning from, or at risk of, homelessness or institutionalization. We develop, own and manage multi-family supportive housing and licensed residential care homes, and implement a broad array of scattered-site, one-on-one supportive housing, and clinical case management programs through partnerships with developmental services, homeless services, veterans’ services and health care sectors.
In short, we do good work.
We have offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles, currently have 130 staff and are growing daily. We’re looking for inspired, talented people who want to be part of a team that’s affecting profound change and is having fun doing it.
This is an opportunity to be part of a new exciting program to help individuals who: 1) are currently living in a setting with a HUD VASH voucher subsidy, but are required to move due to City directives; 2) individuals who are currently living in supportive housing settings but have gained sufficient independence to move into their own apartment with a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher. The first group will include a preidentified group of Veterans (approximately 11) and will include assistance in locating a new place to live, assistance with their move and follow up support. The second group will be individuals referred through the SF Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (approximately 30) who have been pre-screened for readiness to live in their own apartment. It is anticipated that the employee will focus on placing the first group in housing through June, 2018, and provide Retention services after they have moved. The employee will then gradually assume similar responsibilities for the second group as the first group becomes more stabilized.
