Summary
Individuals experiencing homelessness in Bellevue need the support of a one-city approach. The ideal Homelessness Outreach Coordinator candidate will bring their technical expertise to bear on this issue, this individual will lead the development of a compassionate and professional Homeless Outreach program. As a single point of contact, this individual will provide enhanced outreach and education services to achieve optimal coordination within the city and with its external resource partners.  As he/she responds to Bellevue's unhoused and housed residents, this individual will develop, monitor and proactively communicate performance metrics to guide data-driven decision making.
 
As the city has grown and transitioned into a more urban environment, homelessness has become a more prevalent, enduring challenge. Factors such as affordable housing, low paying jobs, domestic violence, chronic health conditions, youth aging out of the foster care system, substance abuse disorder and mental health issues are primary root causes of those experiencing homelessness. For decades the city has been actively responding - in partnership with other Eastside jurisdictions- to provide a coordinated, compassionate and pragmatic response to prevent and address homelessness.  While the city does not provide direct services, this pilot program seeks to provide the bridge between those experiencing homelessness and social services agencies in our region that provide housing, food, job training, counseling, mental and substance abuse services. This position will work collaboratively with our regional partners to develop comprehensive Eastside response and prevention strategy for those experiencing homelessness.
