Senior Program Manager, Consulting

Who we are:

For over 25 years, CSH has been a game-changer for the most vulnerable people in our country:

  • Helping communities create 200,000 homes for individuals and families who did not have one;
  • Bringing hope to thousands who thought they would live on the streets or reside in institutions forever;
  • Ensuring not only a stable home for each, but access to the services that brought healthcare, recovery and training to their doorsteps;

Not only has CSH proven supportive housing works and changes the lives of individuals facing acute disabilities, complex medical and mental conditions, substance use disorders and economic barriers, we have done so while creating a family of nationally recognized experts who stay committed to our organization and mission throughout their careers. We attract talented professionals, offer competitive salaries with benefits, generous family leave and PTO, and fully embrace the philosophy that a sustainable work-life balance is desirable and achievable. With the aim of attracting good people who possess the confidence and drive to get the job done, CSH is now accepting applications for a Senior Program Manager (SPM) to work with the Western Region.


Why we need you:

CSH is seeking an enthusiastic, results-oriented individual to work closely with our Western Region Managing Director and Associate Director of Consulting. You should have project management skills and should understand the nature of working with fee-for-service contracts and be able to manage workload and project deliverables within a specific time frame. You will deliver technical assistance through consulting contracts to support our local offices and work in areas where CSH does not have an office presence. Projects focus on engaging systems and communities, aligning resources to create new supportive housing, and ensuring quality services and operations.   

This position provides consulting services within our Western Region which includes the states of AZ, NM, NV, UT, CA, CO, TX, ID, MT, WY, OR, WA, HI, and AK.  You must live in one of these states and, depending on where you live, you will work from one of the CSH offices or work from your home office. Significant travel within the region with occasional travel elsewhere is required for 30% of your time.


What you will do:

  • Work primarily as a member of our Western Region team on consulting projects, including community technical assistance (remote and in-person); trainings and/or webinars; and written products.
  • Act as project manager for contracts and/or grants, ensuring clearly defined team roles, on time and on-budget deliverables, and delivery of quality products. CSH expects project managers to foster a work environment based on quality teamwork, mutual accountability, and high quality performance.
  • Provide technical assistance/consulting services to diverse stakeholders including government.
  • Participate on and contribute to project teams where you will be involved with technical assistance visits; drafting reports, policy guidance, and other documents and resources; and training design, development, delivery, and evaluation, as well as supporting staff engaged in such activities.


How we work:

All CSH staff share a common competency framework. These guide our approach and in turn, help us create value. CSH staff are adaptable, entrepreneurial, creative, flexible, and problem solvers. We are strategic thinkers with a sense of humor, persistence, and a commitment to treating others with respect.

Do you have:

  • Experience in supportive housing, affordable housing, healthcare, and/or community development.
  • Bachelor’s degree; equivalent experience may substitute for education.
  • Previous project management experience with demonstrated leadership and organizational skills and the ability to manage project teams, project budgets and deadlines.
  • Knowledge and experience in providing technical assistance/consulting services to diverse stakeholders including government, and experience and familiarity with permanent housing and services models for vulnerable populations including chronically homeless.
  • Experience with colleagues and external audiences and partners in the areas of public policy, systems change, housing development/operations, and/or the delivery of supportive services.
  • Talent to take initiative to implement projects and pursue goals with moderate supervision.
  • Strong analytical, interpersonal, presentation and written and verbal communication skills.
