Reporting to the Housing Programs Manager, the Housing Case Manager provides case management, housing search/stability support services, crisis counseling, safety planning, community referrals, life skills building, developing education/employment plans, and financial literacy to individuals and families impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking residing in the YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley’s community-based housing programs. Additional job responsibilities include being a member of a high-performing team and supporting all activities related to the coordination of maintaining permanent housing stability including, but not limited to housing search support services, tenant-landlord mediation, financial assistance, household budgeting, and housing-related advocacy.

We are seeking a compassionate, organized, and reliable individual with a high level of self-awareness and emotional intelligence. Essential to this role is a demonstrated ability to work with culturally and economically diverse individuals and families and the ability to work with those impacted by trauma; a demonstrated ability to function effectively in a fast-paced environment and to respond appropriately to unexpected situations.

Key to success is the ability to be present in a changing work environment; the ability to work independently and as a member of a diverse team with flexibility, initiative, and a sense of humor; and the ability to prioritize effectively and model healthy boundaries with empathy and compassion. Candidates should be competent in using Microsoft Office (Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint) and have experience in confidential data management and record keeping.

The ideal candidate is a warm, self-starter deeply committed to providing services from a strengths-based, social justice and anti-oppression framework.
