To keep CSHers and our partners safe, CSH requires our staff receive the COVID-19 vaccination, including booster shots for those who are eligible. We are doing so in accordance with all applicable ADA and EEOC requirements. CSH is also subject to federal, state, and local COVID-19 vaccine requirements as a contractor. Thank you for considering this vaccine requirement before submitting your application for employment.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging
Race equity is at the heart of our work to advance supportive housing, and we recognize that to be effective, we must exemplify equity internally. From our Strategic Plan to our recently-published race equity framework, we are working to apply equitable and race-conscious practices, policies, competencies, and standards to build a dynamic culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. We are moving toward a place where equity is centered as part of job descriptions, staff orientation, performance reviews, and ongoing staff development, and where racial equity is woven deliberately into our signature initiatives and programs.
To implement the framework and operationalize our race equity goals, CSH established an internal working group called the Race Equity Design & Implementation Team (REDIT). REDIT is a collective of CSH staff from diverse geographies, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and gender identities, and positions. The team consists of seven committees based on our levers for transformative change. Through rotating participation in REDIT, CSH expects that all employees will have an opportunity to participate and contribute.
In June 2022, Crain's New York Business recognized CSH for our diversity and inclusion work driven by the 2021 Race Equity Framework. We are grateful for our staff, alumni, board of directors, and partners who worked tirelessly on the Framework and continue to drive other initiatives that advance racial equity.
Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law
CSH is committed to a policy of equal treatment and opportunity in every aspect of its relations with staff members and prospective employees, and will not discriminate against applicants for employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, age, disability, marital status, sex or sexual orientation.

The Hiring Process FAQs
Thank you for your interest in a career at CSH! Below are some common questions and answers about the application process at CSH.
It is important for candidates to review the job posting carefully and tailor their resume and cover letter to reflect, and highlight, why they feel they are a fit for a particular opportunity.
After applying, candidates will receive an auto-generated email to confirm that CSH received the application and will review it. Due to the volume of applications, CSH will only contact candidates who will move forward to the next step. Candidates who do not move forward will receive an automated notice once the position is filled. (Please check your spam folder for any auto-response messages from CSH as sometimes email clients, like Gmail or Outlook, move automated emails to spam).
A wide range of staff, including human resources, hiring managers, and interviewers, review candidate applications. Applicants considered a good match for the position will be contacted to schedule an initial phone interview.
Yes, you may. Once you create a profile in our applicant tracking system, you can apply for other opportunities where you might be a good fit.
CSH recommends that candidates submit a cover letter. A cover letter can help candidates stand out, particularly if their resume does not capture the depth of experience and specific skills or job experience required for a role. It also demonstrates to the hiring manager that the candidate took the time to read through the job description and can describe why they are interested in that specific position.
It varies, but typically applications are reviewed within two weeks of being submitted.
Our interview process is as follows:
- Phone Interview: The next step would be an initial phone interview. HR or a hiring manager will contact applicants to schedule a phone interview. This conversation is a short, thirty-minute phone call and an opportunity for the candidate to learn more about the position.
- Panel Interview: If CSH moves forward with your application, the next step is a video interview with a panel of employees. During a panel interview, candidates usually meet with three to four interviewers for 60 minutes via Microsoft Teams (video conferencing). A representative from our HR team will contact candidates to schedule the panel interview.
- Second Panel Interview or Assignment: If CSH decides to move forward with candidates after the first panel interview, there may be a second panel interview and/or a relevant assignment.
Interviews are typically sixty-minutes of Q&A conversations. Our goal during interviews is to better understand candidates’ skills and experiences and how they can contribute their skills and passions to CSH.
We are interested in getting to know more about candidates’ interests and experience in the role and their passion for the work of CSH. While no specific preparation is required, candidates should familiarize themselves with our programs and services by visiting our website: www.csh.org. If there are specific preparations or assignments, HR will inform candidates in advance.
HR will notify candidates by email if CSH decides not to proceed with their application. If there are other opportunities where candidates meet the qualifications, they may be considered for those positions.
For candidates considered for hiring, CSH will request three or more professional references.
CSH offers a variety of benefits focused on our employees’ well-being, including 33 days of paid time off (PTO) and best-in-class healthcare insurance. For more information, visit please refer to the section above.

The CSH Culture
At CSH, the people in our organization are our most valuable resource.
CSH fosters a sense of community and a culture that builds trust, drives equality, creates belonging, and promotes inclusivity. From the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our leadership and Board of directors prioritized staff's health and well-being. To that end, most roles offer flexible and hybrid work arrangements to accommodate our employees' needs and personal obligations. While remote work can seem isolating, CSH hosts bi-weekly all-staff calls, annual staff retreats, and employee-led committees to keep our national staff connected. The employee-led committees empower our teams to build a 1CSH culture that works for everyone. Some of our committees include:
- Pension Committee
- Sustainability Committee
- Race Equity Design & Implementation Team (REDIT)
