The Veteran Problem Solving Specialist supports the ECS Coordinated Entry Program in partnership with Swords to Plowshares by performing street outreach to and providing problem solving services to; unsheltered veterans living among the homeless populations of the county, veterans receiving services at the VA, and other areas where veterans may be found.
Background on Coordinated Entry
The purpose of a coordinated entry system is to ensure that all people experiencing a housing crisis have fair and equal access and are quickly identified, assessed for and connected to housing and homeless assistance based on their strengths and needs, without preconditions.
To remove barriers to access, the roving Problem Solving Specialist team will serve single adults experiencing homelessness at remote locations in San Francisco including, for example, on the streets, at the jail or in congregate dining halls. In addition, until all Access Points are open, Problem Solving Specialists not assigned to an Access Point yet will provide roving services.
As a result of ECS continuing to collaborate with the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing and other external stakeholders in launching this project, this job description may change both prior to hire, and after, as we continue to implement the best approach and services.
Compensation is based on a competitive public interest salary scale. Swords to Plowshares offers a generous benefits package including the following benefits:
