Coordinated Access Network (CAN) Housing Coordinator - United Way of Greater New Haven

Summary of Opportunity: 

Who We Are Looking For

Do you enjoy managing data, organizing information, and facilitating effective communications between community organizations? Are you the type of person who takes pride in getting the details right and is excited to support a team to reach the goal of ending homelessness in greater New Haven? Are you passionate about using your organizational talents as a force for good in our community?

United Way is seeking a CAN Housing Coordinator who is passionate and organized to coordinate the exit side of the system to end homelessness in our region. This person will facilitate critical meetings, maintain data, and collaborate with multiple partner organizations in the Greater New Haven Coordinated Access Network system, to ensure that progress is continually made towards meeting system goals.

What You Will Do

  • ●  Collect and analyze data to monitor system performance and drive improvement. If that statement gets you excited, keep reading. If not, this may not be for you. This position will maintain accurate lists for households seeking housing support. They will also compile, monitor, and report on data and trends for the CAN, including monitoring data quality. The right candidate will be comfortable with viewing and analyzing data to provide suggestions for constant system improvement.

  • ●  Review, revise, and approve documentation for housing entry. Federally funded housing programs require specific documentation. When a homeless household is matched to a housing program you would be responsible for maintaining the threshold of documentation needed. The CAN Housing Coordinator will be responsible for reviewing documentation in a timely manner, maintaining high quality documentation, and collaborating with CAN partners for revision, as necessary.

  • ●  Facilitation and coordination of housing meetings among partners. The CAN Housing Coordinator will be responsible for the preparation and facilitation of housing meetings. These meetings are comprised of multiple CAN partners. You will create and distribute the agenda as well as be the neutral facilitator pushing the work forward. You will ensure that CAN policies and procedures are being followed during housing matching.

● You will work as part of a team. You will report to the CAN Senior Manager and meet regularly with the CAN team. You will collaborate with our Marketing team to tell the story of United Way to ensure that our community understands the work and impact of ending homelessness in our community. You will also maintain good working relationships with community, nonprofit and business leaders in the community. And of course, there will be other duties as assigned.

  1. Compensation includes generous paid time-off, health and dental insurance, and a 403(b)- retirement plan with employer matched contributions. Starting salary will be between $40,000 - $43,000 commensurate with demonstrated skills, experience, and background.

    During COVID-19 this position would primarily be working from home.
