Our mission is to end family homelessness in the San Francisco Bay Area. Established in 1985, Hamilton Families is San Francisco's leading service provider to homeless families, with carefully designed programs to prevent homelessness, provide shelter and stability, return families to permanent housing and support the well-being of children experiencing homelessness. We currently operate these programs across six sites in San Francisco and Oakland. For more information, visit www.hamiltonfamilies.org

Program and Position Overview 

Over the last 30+ years, Hamilton Families has become one of the most recognized leaders addressing the rising homelessness challenges in the U.S. With 1 in 30 students in the San Francisco Unified School District experiencing homelessness, Hamilton Families (HF) is leading the City’s efforts to end family homelessness and beginning to develop a regional strategy. Using data to drive our efforts, we focus on impact and long-term solutions to tackle this seemingly intractable problem. We are implementing a plan to significantly reduce family homelessness in San Francisco by 2020, and in recent years have partnered with organizations such as the Giants, Google, Salesforce, Twitter, Airbnb, government officials and the wider Bay Area community.

Hamilton Families’ work is rooted in a whole-family approach, providing supportive services to children and their parents to alleviate the trauma associated with homelessness and provide the tools and resources necessary to ensure long-term financial stability. This methodology addresses the needs of parents and children to ensure that families heal and rebuild their lives together. This dynamic approach helps to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness by promoting the well-being of all of the individuals with whom they work.

The Heading Home Initiative is a Hamilton Families (HF) effort to end family homelessness in San Francisco and support strong communities throughout the Bay Area.  Working collaboratively with the City, the San Francisco Unified School District and key partners, Heading Home helps families with children in SFUSD who are experiencing homelessness to obtain stable housing. The program assists families in securing permanent housing through housing search assistance, move-in financial assistance, eviction prevention, medium-term rent subsidies, and home-based case management to help families move towards self-sufficiency.

The Heading Home Program Initiative will provide at least 400 Heading Home families with Rapid Re-housing services that are augmented with new services and systems that reflect best practices oriented around long-term stability. These best practices will be generated by research insights and iterative program design. The Director of Research is a key leadership role for the agency.

  • Guide your team to observe user and staff behavior and translate those observations into actionable guidance around testing and evaluation for Program Directors.

  • Guide your team in researching trends in related fields, inclusive of any research partnerships with external evaluators and research institutions.

  • Collaborate with Hamilton Families’ Program Directors and staff to record and share back insights that can support development and improvements in program design throughout the agency.

· Be a supporter: Assist participants in viewing potential units, including offering driving support. Then, once they’ve found housing, help participants move in. Work with colleagues to provide funds for move-in costs, review lease with the participants, and inspect the unit to ensure it will be safe and comfortable for the family.

· If you’re bilingual, do it all in another language!

ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION:

Be a part of our community! Pacifica Resource Center (PRC) is an integral part of the Pacifica community; we provide support to Pacificans with a variety of services. Our programs tackle a breadth of sustainability issues such as economic, food, and shelter security. Our mission is to support the economic security of Pacifica families and individuals by providing a safety net of food, housing assistance, and other critical services, including coaching, advocacy, information, and referral. Our vision is to assure the basic needs of every Pacifican are met so that each member of our community has the opportunity to thrive.

Last year, Pacifica Resource Center served 1 in 10 Pacifica families and our impact is far reaching, providing food to benefit nearly 30,000 Pacifica children, adults, and seniors; preventing homelessness and sheltering 122 Pacifica families; providing over 300 showers to homeless Pacificans, helping them prepare for work, job interviews, and housing search; preparing taxes for 188 households, generating nearly $220,000 in refunds and saving taxpayers over $40,000 in tax preparation fees; helping prepare 158 youth for the new school year with grade appropriate school supplies; providing happy holidays to 224 children through our Adopt-A-Family program, as well as assisting 527 Pacificans with Thanksgiving meals and support.

But, we know that we can do more given that 4 in 10 Pacifica households are eligible for our services. Based on HUD standards, it costs over $117,400 for a family of four to live in San Mateo County. Therefore, over the next year, we plan to expand our services to increase who we serve and how we serve them by focusing on ways to make it easier to access PRC services, especially for higher income Pacificans who may be unaware they qualify to help them reduce the financial burden of living in a high cost area.

PRC is looking for a Program Planner to expand our services to higher income Pacificans while also increasing our overall usability. The Planner will be responsible for developing and executing a plan to conduct focus groups and other forms of information gathering to learn from higher income Pacificans who are not currently using our services. Information gathered will be used to develop 3-5 experiments to test program delivery, including but not limited to a grocery delivery pilot and a web-based interface that determines eligibility for our services. Statistics and measurable outcomes are expected to determine which test programs are the most viable for full implementation. Outreach to other agencies and organizations is also expected so they are aware of our efforts and could possibly assist or complement them.

The Program Planner is a contracted position and is temporary in nature. Hours to be determined and will vary.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

• Develop and execute a plan to gather data on the needs of the community, targeting Pacifica households with higher incomes that are not aware they are eligible for services. This plan must be approved by the Executive Director before it is initiated.

• Develop 3-5 programmatic experiments to increase access to PRC services, guided by the information gathered from higher income Pacificans.

• Conduct pilot projects to test service delivery, ensuring that activities and results are well-captured for analysis of the success of the program.

• Present the results of the pilots to the Executive Director, including recommendations of how to proceed.

• Maintain strict confidentiality of individuals and families using PRC services

EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE:

• Extensive and recent experience in program development

• Experience in conducting and evaluating pilot efforts

• Prior experience working with safety net services highly desirable.

KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS AND ABILITIES:

• Ability to create plans, as well as manage and execute those plans.

• Proficient with all MS Office software (Excel, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, etc) and with using the Web as an information resource.

• Ability to prioritize and meet deadlines.

• Understand the need for and has the ability to maintain appropriate professional boundaries and confidentiality.

• Sensitivity to issues of ethnicity, race, class, gender, and sexual preference.

• Flexibility, sense of humor, tact, and diplomacy desirable.

$26 - $35 per hour (depending on experience)
