At The Delores Project, we provide safe, low-barrier shelter, housing, and personalized services for individuals experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity. On-site at Arroyo Village we operate a 24-7 housing-focused shelter for unaccompanied adult women and transgender individuals experiencing homelessness as well as a 35-unit supportive housing apartment community for people with a disability who have transitioned out of chronic homelessness. We also provide community-based aftercare services for Delores community members who have transitioned from shelter into independent housing to help ensure their stability.
Together we work to ensure all individuals have the community of support and housing stability they need to reach their potential. We take pride in being a team that constantly strives to be the most inclusive and innovative service provider for those experiencing homelessness and poverty in the Denver-Metro area. We are client-centered and strengths-based in our approach and practice harm-reduction and trauma-informed model care in all our programs. Our engagement with those we serve is rooted in our values of hospitality, respect, and dignity for each community member, whether they be staff, supportive housing resident, shelter guest, or volunteer. We are always looking for more people who are passionate about working with those we serve and who are curious, flexible, and mature, and who like to have fun and are open to continuous learning and growth in their work.
About the program
Our Rehousing Program was created in the fall of 2021 with the goal of helping an increased number of shelter guests transition into stable housing. All shelter guests are provided housing-focused case management by one of our Rehousing Case Managers and are also supported in the housing process by our Housing Navigator. Depending upon levels of income and stability, some guests are provided with up to nine months of rental assistance from The Delores Project. All guests are offered up to one year of ongoing case management by one of our Continued Care Case Managers who work to help former guests find a community of support outside of Delores and assist clients in maintaining or increasing income so they can maintain their housing.
About the job
The Rehousing manager (RHM) is responsible for implementing and overseeing TDP’s rehousing and continued care program which is aimed to maximize exits from shelter into permanent housing and minimize returns to homelessness. The Rehousing Manager supervises a team of Rehousing Case Managers, Continued Care Case Managers, and a Housing Navigator, and works in close collaboration with Shelter Managers. The Rehousing Manager sets the tone for the housing-first nature of the rehousing team and is responsible for not only staff professional development, but for creating and maintaining a forward-thinking team focused on guest needs, teamwork, kind and compassionate communication, and creative thinking. The Rehousing Manager works in partnership with other homeless service providers, representing TDP in the Denver Rehousing Collaborative. They also oversee the program budget which includes the provision of short-term rental assistance for some shelter guests transitioning into housing.
