ASHF, Permanent Housing Coordinator
The VISTA will serve as part of the Permanent Supportive Housing team at ASHF. The VISTA will work with the Director of Supportive Housing and program staff to assist with identifying, recording, and implementing updated policies and procedures as they relate to operating a supportive housing model that serves a variety of resident demographics. These activities will allow for more effective utilization of resources by ensuring programs reduce administrative redundancies and streamline record-keeping. This position will also work closely with the Director of Programs and the Program Coordinator VISTA to maintain consistent Standard Operating Procedures across the organization. ···· 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.
