To that end, Amirah has launched a Rapid Re-Housing program within our larger Outreach Program. Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, the Rapid Rehousing Coordinator will work to quickly connect eligible clients to rental units in the community that are in areas with access to public transportation and access to Amirah’s Community Resource Center, maintain strong partnerships with landlords within these communities, and develop working relationships with other organizations that provide quality living furnishings.

  • You are a skilled empathetic people manager who enjoys building strong and balanced teams to achieve collective goals, and fostering a collaborative growth culture

  • You’re excited about the challenge of building deeply intentional processes towards a more diverse, equitable and racially just community
