EVENTS & COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS MANAGER
Position Type: Full Time
Priority Application Deadline: Sunday, September 18, 2022, at 11:59 pm
Our mission is to end family homelessness in the San Francisco Bay Area. We believe that the San Francisco Bay Area is at its best when people from all backgrounds can start a life here, raise a family here, and thrive here. Hamilton Families envisions a Bay Area where housing is accessible and affordable, where homelessness is rare, brief, and nonrecurring, and where all people and families have a safe and stable place to live. 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 multiple sites in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area.
Since 1985, Hamilton Families has become one of the most recognized leaders addressing the rising homelessness challenges in the Bay Area. With 1 in 25 students in the San Francisco Unified School District experiencing homelessness, Hamilton Families (HF) is leading the City’s efforts to end family homelessness, notably scaling our housing services program through a $30M public-private initiative from 2016 to 2022. For the second year in a row, we have served over 800 families—a 200 percent increase in the number of families we served less than a decade ago.
