The Program:

WJS Canada serves both male and female adults with the Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or FASD, Developmental Disabilities (DD), Mental health, and mental health diagnosis in our Shared Living programs throughout British Columbia. Persons served live with the family or have their own suite at the host family’s home.

Our commitment is to provide the people we serve with programs that maximize progress and independence, support unique strengths and qualities, and encourage integration into the community. We work to improve quality of life served by enabling those in our care to be as self directed as possible and encouraging them to make their own decisions as to what they want for their lives.


The Position:

The Program Manager, Community Living Home Share Programs, provides operational and administrative direction for the development, implementation and management of the program in this CARF-accredited agency. The PM implements and monitors policies and procedures related to day-to-day services to persons served and directs and coordinates the day-to-day management of program staff. S/He works directly with persons served and their families/care teams as required, and is responsible for overseeing and coordinating individual program plans. The Program Manager participates in agency decision making and is the primary liaison with the contracting body. The Community Living Home Share Program Manager may be required to carry a caseload of up to 10 persons served in shared living and/or contracted services. Responsibilities include coordinating, supporting and supervising the Quality Analysts in the Community Living Services program.

This position requires frequent travel (extensive at times); requiring use of own vehicle.
