ASHF, Contract Management Coordinator
The VISTA will collaborate with the Grants Department, department Directors, and program managers to collect information about ongoing grants and contracts. The VISTA will develop a digital information storage system for uploading, tracking, and maintaining all information related to grants and contracts including original documents, contract terms, amounts, funders, and report and audit requirements and schedules. The focus for this position is on the creation of the database and the establishment of institutionalized processes for its maintenance. ···· The VISTA will serve as part of an intra-agency team studying and refining A Safe Haven Foundation’s model. The project is intended to identify and systematize best practices and update agency policies and procedures to reflect the most recent evidence-based recommendations for substance use social service care provision. This will allow ASHF to effectively scale its services and better serve homeless individuals in Chicago — particularly those at high-risk for opioid addiction — ultimately helping them transition out of poverty by creating greater access to treatment and other services.
