Recruitment Underway for City of Fremont Homeless Services Manager

Homeless Services Manager

Homelessness is a complex societal issue created by a variety of factors including lack of affordable housing, disability, mental illness, and substance use, among others. In recent years, the number of unsheltered or homeless individuals has increased not just in Fremont, but for the region and the entire state of California. As of January 2017, the City’s biennial homeless count indicated there were 479 homeless persons in Fremont and it is estimated the actual number is higher than the count indicates.

Historically, the City has managed its homeless efforts with existing resources. Yet given the growing magnitude of the issue, the Fremont City Council has approved additional resources and a new, more coordinated approach to mitigate the impacts of homelessness on our community and on the homeless individuals within it.

At this time, the City is seeking candidates that are passionate about making a difference in the Fremont community by tackling the issue of homelessness. If you have strong initiative and creative problem solving skills, consider applying for the City of Fremont’s brand new position of Homeless Services Manager. This job will partner with a variety of City departments to develop innovative solutions in response to the issue of homelessness in Fremont. Qualified applicants will have a Master’s degree, five years of directly related experience, and strong people skills. Applications are due by November 28 at noon. View complete details about the Homeless Services Manager recruitment.

The successful candidate will work on several initiatives currently being explored including expanding temporary shelter options, overseeing operation of a mobile hygiene unit and offering temporary safe parking. In addition, creating a flexible spending fund which can be used to offer incentives to landlords to accept residents who have governmental housing subsidies and provide subsidies for rapid rehousing and to help those facing housing crises maintain their housing and avoid eviction. Lastly, partner with faith-based organizations to shelter homeless individuals on a temporary and/or seasonal basis, without permit fees/or cost.
