Programs | Oakland, CA | Full Time
SupplyBank.Org is seeking an ambitious professional to join the team as Program Coordinator. The ideal candidate for this position will have a passion for social justice and systems change, and experience supporting the design, implementation and evaluation of a portfolio of programs. The ideal candidate will be prepared to plug into a fast-paced office environment composed of a small but mighty (and growing) team working to address the basic needs of hundreds of thousands of low-income children and families throughout California to foster pathways out of poverty.
SupplyBank.Org personnel have worked from home since the onset of the Pandemic. Once it is safe, this position will be based at our office in Oakland, California. We encourage candidates from all backgrounds with the qualifications listed below and a sincere passion for making a lasting change in their community to apply.
SupplyBank.org is a collaborative and innovative non-profit agency that provides essential goods and services to children and families in vulnerable communities throughout California.
SupplyBank.org replicates the Food Bank model and applies it to the delivery of basic tangible needs to children and families facing challenging situations. We seek to permanently and effectively transform the way people receive what they need to thrive.
SupplyBank.Org centralizes procurement and in-kind donations to provide upwards of $3 worth of necessities for every $1 invested. In the few years prior to the Pandemic, the Organization provided more than $27 million worth of materials including diapers, hygiene supplies, school supplies and refurbished laptops to hundreds of thousands of low-income children and families throughout California. Our largest programmatic footprint remains in the Bay Area, but with significant growth in all 58 counties.
By distributing materials through a statewide network of partnering agencies that provide additional resources supporting pathways out of poverty, we aim to both alleviate the immediate symptoms of poverty, while incentivizing families to participate in programs that provide pathways towards self-sufficiency. Leveraging existing investments into the safety net enables SupplyBank.Org to distribute critical materials through an existing and trusted infrastructure with a leg up approach (no line), while minimizing our operational costs.
Oakport Street Project - Oakport.org
Our next phase will begin with the completion of the Oakport Street Project Oakport.Org, which will include our new 120,000 sq. ft. distribution center, 160,000 sq. ft. nonprofit center, 24 hour childcare for employees, massive murals, a two-acre rooftop farm and reentry job training program with permanent placements. With its completion, our programs for poverty alleviation, immediate disaster relief and others will scale to meet regional and statewide needs. See more at www.oakport.org.
Since the onset of the Pandemic, SupplyBank.Org utilized its relationships with numerous state agencies, FEMA representatives and several other local agencies to establish and administer 58 county specific emergency supplies programs totaling several million dollars each quarter. While they vary in distribution points, all partner with each respective County Children and Families Commission, childcare providers for essential personnel, COEs and other programs through public health/social services agencies. Thousands of organizations throughout the state are beneficiaries and several Counties made supplemental appropriations towards the effort to increase scope and impact.
