Goals

Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s Family Services Development VISTA member will assist with improving the systems and processes of the family services program so that the affiliate can serve more families in our service area. Habitat has been growing dramatically over the past few years and has ambitious plans to double the number of families reached over the next couple of years. This means that the workload of the family services department has been increasing substantially. To reach our goals, the program needs to have better systems in place to manage and track the now multiple types of family cohorts. This position’s primary task will be to consolidate the existing systems and to develop improved methods. The member will then test the implementation of these systems, and help determine and manage how program data is organized and recorded for future use. A more efficient system will provide staff with much needed time to engage families directly. This person will work closely with the family services department, most of the repair department, the repair committee of the board of directors, other office staff as needed, and potentially community partners.
