Description

Position Profile: The Housing Navigator will provide personalized support to individuals and families experiencing or at-risk of homelessness by helping each client develop a Housing Plan to address their barriers to maintaining and sustaining permanent housing.

Under the direction of the Director of Housing, the Housing Navigator provides client support such as advocacy, case management, benefit establishment, linkage to mental health/substance abuse services, and connection to stable housing and all other supportive services as needed.
