18/19 Landlord Liaison
 
 
 
A core component of Family Support Center of South Sound’s mission and vision is Working Together, and that is realized through the organization’s many formal and informal partnerships. The Coordinated Entry system is a collaborative and coordinated effort to ensure our community’s most vulnerable homeless individuals and families get prioritized first for housing and shelter resources. The Landlord Liaison AmeriCorps position will be a critical component to ensuring homeless individuals and families who access Coordinated Entry have easy and quick access to flexible landlords. This includes landlords who are willing to rent to individuals and families with significant barriers to housing, such as evictions, criminal history, and limited incomes. Landlord Liaison positions are best practices for Coordinated Entry systems to have in order reduce the length of time homeless, as relationships with landlords are critical. The AmeriCorps position will increase the capacity of the system overall, and will work in a collaborative nature to best meet the needs of individuals and families. The full scope of this AmeriCorps project is to strengthen and support the established Coordinated Entry system in Thurston County in order to quickly and effectively address the unsheltered homeless population in our community. Currently, all three sites are operating on a shoe string budget and leveraging as many staff and community resources as possible in order to meet the incredible need and ensure the most vulnerable homeless households can access housing. The Liaison is responsible for ensuring an interested landlord pool exists, Coordinated Entry intake specialists know which landlord will accept households who are on a housing program and who have certain backgrounds (Ie: John Smith will accept people with recent evictions but no criminal histories, etc.) thus making it easier and quicker for households to exit homelessness to housing. This position is contingent on funding.
