Coalition Ending Gender-Based Violence

Domestic Violence Housing Systems Coordinator

The Coalition has an job opening for a Domestic Violence Housing Systems Coordinator.

Domestic violence and homelessness are closely linked, but the systems to which survivors turn are frequently unprepared to respond to their unique needs. Domestic violence advocacy programs and housing/homelessness service providers in King County do not have consistent training, screening, and response practices to address the unique housing, safety, legal, and emotional needs of survivors of DV who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. In addition, programs providing DV housing services are required to coordinate their services; however there has not been staffing to implement this systems level work. The DV Housing Systems Coordinator will facilitate coordination of DV housing services, and increase coordination and knowledge within and between domestic violence and homelessness/housing service programs across King County. The goal is that homeless and housing-insecure survivors, especially those who face racism, homo/transphobia, and other marginalization, are better served.
