The YWCA Passage Point is a program designed to address one of the sources of homelessness in King County - discharge into the community of persons who have been incarcerated and who, upon release, are without decent, safe housing. All residents must be committed to working toward housing stability and reunification. The unique aspects of Passage Point include its program goals: to reduce recidivism, end homelessness and reunite children with their parents. For that reason, Passage Point is much more than a place providing affordable housing - it is an opportunity to start life in the community with support and encouragement and directed by the specific needs of the residents.
This Re-Entry Life Coach will provide intensive, strength-based case management services to parents with multiple barriers who need supportive services in order to attain their personal and housing goals.
The Re-Entry Life Coach is a member of the YWCA'S Homeless Services Department, which is a part of the Specialized and Integrated Services Division. This Division has a reputation in the community for providing culturally competent services with particular emphasis on serving homeless and low-income families and individuals.
This position has a social justice component that will allow for critical thinking around how the external systems impact the work that we are doing through the lens of racism and intersections with poverty. Valuing diversity and championing anti-racism policy are core values. As an equal opportunity employer, we highly encourage people of color to apply.
