For 31 years, Eva’s Initiatives for Homeless Youth (Eva’s)—an award-winning organization that provides shelter, transitional housing, and programming to help young people in need build brighter futures—has taken innovative approaches toward addressing youth homelessness. Inspired by the legacy of Eva Maud Smith (1923-1993) and her trailblazing work to address barriers facing marginalized youth—and specifically, Black youth—the organization has been recognized nationally for providing young people with support while in school and when finding and maintaining employment. Eva’s Initiatives operates three specialized shelters—Eva’s Place, Eva’s Satellite, and Eva’s Phoenix—and, in 2020, was chosen as one of Canada’s Top 10 high-impact charities. At this important moment in the organization’s evolution, Eva’s Initiatives invites nominations and applications for the following two roles that will positively impact many young lives: Director of Programs and Senior Site Manager of Housing.
THE ROLE OF SENIOR SITE MANAGER OF HOUSING
Reporting to the Director of Programs, the Senior Site Manager of Housing is responsible for all Eva’s sites and the smooth operation of services. Oversight will include program planning; development and implementation; finance and human resources management; active participation in agency initiatives; and ensuring compliance with funder and agency policies and procedures. Key to this management position is the ability to develop and build partnerships with community agencies, housing providers, and landlords. The Senior Site Manager of Housing will support a broad housing portfolio that includes both the You Got This program and the YOUth Belong program, the latter of which is designed to support and centre Black youth who face barriers to housing. The ideal candidate will be able to draw on case management experience; management roles; equity-based programming; a deep understanding and commitment to ending youth homelessness; and the ability to use a harm reduction lens when delivering services. Drawing on the guiding principles of Eva’s to be relationship-centered, justice-doing, reflective, and focused on young people’s experiences, the incumbent will have expertise in delivering programming that addresses and combats anti-Black racism while promoting more equitable outcomes for youth. An undergraduate degree in a relevant field (e.g., Social Work, Psychology) is sought or a combination of relevant experience and/or education.
