San Francisco, CA

Deputy Director of Housing Stability

m/Oppenheim is assisting Episcopal Community Services in the search for a Deputy Director of Housing Stability, a newly created role, and we are reaching out to the community for suggestions and nominations.

The largest provider of housing and services for adults experiencing homelessness in San Francisco, ECS seeks a seasoned program executive to steward a multi-year expansion of ECS housing programs, while driving toward operational excellence and long-term programmatic sustainability. The Deputy Director of Housing Stability (DDHS) role is intended to provide stellar management of a highly committed team of Directors, ensure hands-on leadership and support during this time of growth, and bring a dedicated, ongoing focus to program administration, outcomes and performance, and internal capacity building.

Reporting to a newly-appointed, highly-qualified Chief Program Officer, the DDHS will be a valued and integral part of ECS’s Senior Management Team. The DDHS will drive the evolution and administration of ECS housing programs, ensuring that teams have the capacity to successfully address client needs and achieve the ECS mission of preventing and ending homelessness. The DDHS will oversee the Permanent Supportive Housing Services (Site-Based), Rapid Rehousing/ Permanent Supportive Housing Services (Scattered-Site), and Adult Coordinated Entry Services (Access Points). This portfolio represents an approximate $38,000,000 operating budget with 180 FTEs, and is expected to grow as ECS continues to pursue housing strategies and anticipated increases in local, state, federal and private funding become available.

At hire, the DDHS will supervise three experienced Director-level leaders and work collaboratively with their teams to conduct all areas of program administration including: hiring and retention, planning and evaluation, policy and procedure development, operational implementation, contract compliance and reporting, budgeting and expense tracking. The DDHS will guide their team in the implementation of administrative systems and practices, focusing in the first year on programmatic policies and procedures for new programs, ensuring compliance of a new performance management process, and the adoption of a new database system. The DDHS will manage, coach and provide hands-on support in these areas and will be a steady champion for the program teams, their needs, and their professional growth.

ECS is continuously evolving and takes every strategic opportunity to develop new program areas to support very low-income individuals and people experiencing homelessness. The position requires a flexible individual with deep program, operations and systems capabilities with exceptional human qualities to lead, coach, collaborate, and flex into future growth with their teams and across the organization. We appreciate you sharing the position description with your network, and also any nominations you might have.
