ASHF, Programs Coordinator
The VISTA will work closely with the Director of Programs, program managers, and other VISTAs to update and standardize operations systems across the entire organization. The VISTA will help direct the Standard Operating Procedure activities of other program VISTAs, to ensure that information and policies are consistent across the entire program. This VISTA role will be a leadership position that will require significant attention to detail, exceptional organizational capacity, and above-and-beyond work ethic. These activities will ensure that ASHF programs are operating as efficiently as possible, by reducing staff hours spent on administrative redundancies and improving management flow. ···· 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.
