Full-time, $55,000-60,000/year + benefits
Application Deadline: January 23, 2022
Supervisor: Social Services Manager
Location: Seattle, WA
About the Organization:
African Community Housing & Development (ACHD) is a community-founded organization led by visionary Black women and a community Board of Directors. ACHD works towards an informed African Diaspora immigrant and refugee community that is engaged in the holistic development of families, communities, and environment. ACHD focuses on equitable and culturally-relevant health, legal, and educational services; housing stability and economic development; and land-use, real estate, and property development. ACHD staff speak a collective 12 languages, and 88% identify as BIPOC.
About the Position:
The African Diaspora immigrant and refugee community has a disproportionately high rate of contact with the justice system. By providing holistic support to expunge records (especially for drug and drug-related convictions), help for families to knowledgeably navigate the justice system, and protecting community members from unjust evictions, ACHD seeks to increase opportunity and reduce injustice for our community. The Program Manager will work closely with the Staff Attorney to conduct community outreach, assist community members who are navigating the legal system, and provide overall program management and administration.
This position does not have any supervisory responsibilities.
Note: ACHD emphasizes a highly collaborative approach that is rooted in equity and co-learning. Supervisors are to lead with equity and humbleness, recognizing that each staff member brings a highly valuable and essential background and perspective. Accordingly, supervisors are also accountable to staff members, working to ensure they (supervisors) are meeting the needs of staff and providing a healthy and safe environment where feedback and learning is two-way. In other words, supervisors should work to build a positive environment where staff and supervisors learn together, and mistakes are considered a healthy part of personal and professional growth.
African Community Housing and Development does not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, military service, or other non-merit factor.
