The National Alliance to End Homelessness (Alliance) is an influential national nonprofit devoted to finding and advancing solutions to homelessness. We are focused on making an impact and we seek an enthusiastic new member for our Program and Policy Team. The Program and Policy Team works with communities to understand the best solutions to ending homelessness, and then with Congress and the Administration to develop strong policy and adequate resources to support those solutions. The National Field Organizer helps communities educate Congress about what is needed at the state and local levels to prevent and end homelessness.
If you are committed to helping the nation SOLVE the problem of homelessness, consider joining the Alliance.
What we are looking for:
The Alliance is looking for a talented National Field Organizer committed to helping end homelessness by building support for effective federal policy. We seek someone with a grounding knowledge of homelessness and how programs work on the local level; familiarity with the workings of Congress; a commitment to racial equity; high energy; and excellent organizational and communications skills. Digital advocacy experience is a plus. A successful Organizer will value close collaboration with team members but will also be self-motivated and able to work independently.
What you will do:
The National Field Organizer will develop and support a strong field of nonprofit, faith-based, and public sector organizations, individuals, and consumers committed to participating in the creation of strong federal homelessness policy. The National Field Organizer will work closely with the Alliance’s policy staff to create national policy priorities for ending homelessness, and identify local and state partners who will advocate for these federal policies. Results will include strong support throughout the country, leading to better funding and federal policies for effective homelessness and housing programs. The National Field Organizer will work in close collaboration with other national organizations that are mobilizing behind the effort to end homelessness and address related issues.
