The National Alliance to End Homelessness (Alliance) is an influential national nonprofit devoted to finding and advancing solutions to homelessness. Our team is focused on making an impact. We seek a Project Associate to contribute to the impacts and outcomes of our Center for Capacity Building and Center for Learning.

The Alliance Center for Capacity Building (the Center) is a mission-driven division of the organization that helps cities, counties, states and nonprofits move more quickly toward an end to homelessness. The Center for Learning (the CFL) is a comprehensive learning management system, to help train frontline service providers, stakeholders, and system leaders implement best practice and effective strategies to end homelessness. Together, the Center and the CFL does this by working these stakeholders and with people experiencing homelessness to implement evidence-based best practices, and to innovate in new and emerging areas of concern. Additionally, the Center works collaboratively with public, private and nonprofit sector partners. It focuses on key areas of system and program performance including: diversion, outreach, coordinated assessment and entry, emergency shelter and services, self-resolution, rapid re-housing, permanent supportive housing, and housing subsidy. It covers the full spectrum of homeless subpopulations including children and youth, families, veterans, individual adults, chronically homeless people, and people with disabilities. It is always attentive to the special needs of LGBTQ people and racial and ethnic minorities, and the particular strategies needed to address their distinct experiences of homelessness.

The Center provides customized consultation services, remote and on-site technical assistance and trainings, online learning, and learning collaborative environments. It is research-informed, works to center race equity in all its activities, and always pursues the goal of reducing the number of people who experience homelessness.
