About CSH

For over 30 years, CSH has changed the lives of people who have been marginalized and are our most vulnerable neighbors by:

  • Helping communities create over 385,000 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 a stable home for each, as well as access to supportive services to create a thriving environment.

CSH has proven supportive housing can change the lives of individuals, families, and communities. We have a team of nationally recognized experts who are dedicated to our organization and its goals. We attract talented and diverse individuals, offer competitive salaries and benefits, generous leave and paid time off, and fully embrace the philosophy that work-life balance is achievable. With the goal of attracting proven candidates committed to making a difference and who aspire to advance our mission, CSH is now accepting applications for Senior Program Manager (SPM) based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Applicants must live or relocate to the San Francisco Bay Area and will work remotely from home.  

Why We Need You
CSH is seeking a results-oriented individual committed to advancing anti-racist practices, and sharing their talent to support a mission-driven organization that leads efforts to expand housing and service solutions for highly impacted populations. This position is part of the Pacific Northwest/Northern California team, which includes Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Northern California, and Hawai’i.

What You Will Do

  • Work throughout Northern California, primarily in the Bay Area, on projects that increase quality supportive housing and improve systems.
  • Manage projects ensuring clearly defined team roles as well as on time and on budget quality deliverables. CSH expects project managers to foster a work environment based on teamwork, mutual accountability, and high performance.
  • Facilitate large and small diverse groups that may include elected officials, non-profits, jurisdictional staff, people with lived experience, and others.  
  • Establish and maintain high-quality relationships and partnerships with key community partners. Cultivate new relationships and funding opportunities including fielding and responding to external requests for resources and support. Participate in team fund development activities.
  • Create and deliver in-person and virtual technical assistance, trainings, and webinars. In all of these activities, incorporate an emphasis on racial equity. CSH prioritizes and advances racial equity by addressing racial disparities in housing and services, and engaging and collaborating with communities of color, culturally specific and/or responsive organizations, and persons with lived experience.
  • Provide system transformation support across homeless, healthcare, justice, family and youth, aging, and supportive housing partners and providers.
  • Identify opportunities and learnings from projects, disseminate recommendations and impact across CSH teams and regions, and make appropriate connections to share knowledge, experience, and advice.

How We Work

CSH staff are adaptable, entrepreneurial, creative, and flexible problem-solvers. We are strategic thinkers who are committed to racial equity and treating each other—and the communities we serve—with respect. You should share a passion for the CSH mission and possess the skills to meet the expectation of this role to help shape how we share our ambitious mission.  Specifically, we are seeking:

  • Experience in supportive housing, affordable housing, behavioral and physical healthcare, justice sector, families and youth, and/or related fields that touch highly impacted households.
  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, or any combination of education, training, and experience that demonstrates the ability to perform the duties of the position. This includes lived experience of homelessness, housing instability, participation in housing programs, etc. and professional experience in the supportive housing field.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills, facilitation and training, active listening, and ability to present to diverse audiences, specifically racially, ethnically, and socially diverse communities.
  • Experience incorporating the perspectives of multiple communities, including communities of color and other marginalized populations (e.g. LGBTQ+ and people with disabilities), in the consideration of impacts and outcomes of a decision-making process.
  • An understanding of the concepts of institutional and structural racism and bias, white dominant culture and structures of power, and their impact on underserved and underrepresented communities is preferred.
  • Project management experience, with demonstrated leadership and organizational skills and the ability to manage project teams, project budgets, and deadlines with moderate supervision.
  • This position requires regular travel within the Bay Area as well as occasional travel to other parts of the region and nationally.
  • CSH uses a Microsoft Office environment. Proficiency is required or a commitment to self-learn and achieve proficiency upon hire.
  • Candidates must provide their own access to a secure high-speed internet signal (preferably hard wired) at a capacity sufficient to support video, web, and email processing simultaneously based on their personal work environment. This is typically 100Mb and above.
