Data and Quality Assurance Specialist
Data and Quality Assurance Specialist
Headquarters - Walter Reed, WASHINGTON, DC, US
Chronic homelessness for families in DC is down by 20%! Largely, this is because of the success of the Family Rehousing Stabilization Program (FRSP) across the District. Housing Up has been providing FRSP to families for almost a decade. In that time, our team has helped hundreds of families leave the shelter, obtain their own apartment, and become more self-sufficient. Over the past three years, 96% of Housing Up families have not returned to the system for shelter or services after exiting our FRSP program.
We are expanding our program again and are looking for people who are passionate about access to affordable housing and helping families transition to greater independence. In order to make this expansion work, we need a strong data and quality assurance team member, who is excited about measuring and translating data to outcomes. If this sounds like you, then we would love to have a conversation!
We need people who:
- have a Bachelor's degree in a field related to human services;
- have strong written communication skills;
- have demonstrated skills collecting data, measuring outcomes, identifying themes, and communicating these in a clear and concise manner;
- are excited about using technology to accomplish these goals; and
- have a valid driver's license
