The Living Safely in Jackson Square (LSJS) Project Manager will manage and oversee the day-to-day work of the LSJS Coalition and is primarily responsible for managing and supporting the coalition through ensuring the implementation of its work plan, ongoing facilitation and communication among partners, evaluation efforts, and handling logistical and administrative details for the initiative to function smoothly.

This position is full-time and will report to Hyde Square Task Force, one of three backbone organizations managing the Coalition. This is a three-year grant-funded position.

●       Coordinate and work together with other coalition backbone organizations to ensure all partners, working groups, committees, etc. work well and effectively together, and to create a positive view of the work in the community.

●       Collaborate with partners to connect families to resources and opportunities that will help them accomplish their goals.

●       With support from coalition members, organize trainings/workshops for partners and resident leaders, including racial equity training.

●       In collaboration with the three backbone organizations, complete all required funder reports.

●       Maintain required documentation for the LSJS Coalition.
