Senior Program Manager, Southwest

Who we are:

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

  • Helping communities create 300,000 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; and
  • 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, families and communities, 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.

  • Through the delivery of in-person and virtual technical assistance, work with communities to build capacity, implement new models, and provide strategies to support the creation of supportive housing.
  • Cultivate new relationships and fee-for-service opportunities including fielding and responding to external requests for resources and support. Participate in team fund development activities.
  • Provide training, facilitation and coalition building to diverse stakeholders, including: key funders, community stakeholders, staff from city, county and state agencies, housing authorities, the Continuum of Care, managed care organizations, other health systems, criminal justice systems, community-based supportive housing providers and developers.
  • Attend to the impacts of policies and systems on multiple communities, including communities of color.
  • Support and assist the Southwest Director to identify key emerging public policy issues and participate in the development of a policy agenda to engage key external partners in advancing this agenda
