Community Life Service Coordinator
Reporting to the Director of Health & Housing, the Community Life Service Coordinator (CLSC) develops and coordinates support services for residents of The Pointes of Avondale, a 319 unit, mixed-income apartment community providing homes for over 500 residents in 10 different buildings along the Reading Road corridor. The service coordination will ensure resident and community success through close work with TCB property management team and local community partners. The CLSC will work one-on-one with residents to assist them in achieving housing stability. The CLSC is an integral part of the housing and property team and plays a critical role in the overall positive culture of the property for the enjoyment of its residents and the respect of its neighbors.
Housing stabilization is the area of focus that will be delivered through referrals to quality, local partners, on-site programming, and individual coaching. The goal is to have families stable in their housing and to connect them to local opportunities in the areas of education, workforce development, financial education, asset building and health. In addition, community engagement and community building activities will be essential to create a sense of community and initiate a gateway to other support services. The CLSC will work with each family to create a housing stability success plan that will guide the support, interventions, and referrals needed by the family/individual. The family/individual success plans ensure a resident-centered approach to delivering resident services. In addition, the CLSC, in collaboration with the Community Life HUB team, will track performance measures, administer the annual survey, develop a Community Success Plan, and evaluate effectiveness of the partnerships to impact outcome measures.
