Program: Starting with the belief that people grow, develop, and evolve into their unique selves in the presence of other people, the Recovery Community program is a Community Connections' supportive housing program that seeks to create intentional, safe, relationship-centered communities of residents. The Recovery Community clinical housing staff work with residents who live independently in a variety of building styles including shared houses or congregate apartments. In these communities and with the support of clinical housing staff, residents enhance healthy relationships, become active participants in a supportive community, and develop the ability to heal from the impacts of mental illness, trauma, substance abuse, homelessness, discrimination, and poverty. The team also serves some consumers experiencing homelessness or living in scattered site arrangements.

Position: The Senior Clinical Housing Coordinator provides clinical consultation and coordinates community-based interventions. The Senior Coordinator delivers direct services and also promotes cross-teaming efforts to assist residents with establishing and maintaining housing and income stability and enhance overall wellness.

Along with a passion for preventing homelessness, ideal candidates will also have demonstrated strong collaboration skills and working in team environment; experience working in community-based services and providing crisis response; and strong clinical and administrative skills including sound documentation and organizational practices.

Candidates must pass a background check, have a clean driving record as well as a reliable vehicle to transport consumers and navigate community work as most of the work is done in the community.
