The Veterans Housing Navigator will support clients of the new Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) pilot program. These are veterans working with the King County Veterans Program (KCVP) that have a VASH voucher through King County Housing Authority (KCHA). The Veterans Housing Navigator will identify permanent housing units in the private rental market for voucher holders, work closely with the case managers from the CCM-VASH program through the KCVP to ensure clients are connected to services, and provide crisis intervention for clients at risk of losing their housing that which could include a home visit or meeting with landlord.

 The Veterans Housing Navigator is part of the YWCA Homeless Initiatives Department; which is part of the King County - Specialized & Integrated Services Division of the YWCA. These programs have 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 requires critical thinking about how the external systems impact the work we are doing through the lens of racism and intersections with poverty. Championing the principles of antiracism and grounding those principles in everyday work are required job skills and core values. As an equal opportunity employer, we highly encourage people of color to apply.
