POSITION SUMMARY: The Supervisor of the Shelter Rights Monitoring Team is a dedicated advocate for homeless New Yorkers and a key member of the Advocacy Department of the Coalition for the Homeless, which uniquely serves as the independent monitor of New York City’s municipal shelter system.

The Supervisor of the Shelter Rights Monitoring Team manages a small team of shelter monitors and the day-to-day shelter monitoring activities of the Coalition. The Supervisor ensures that the team timely responds to shelter residents’ complaints about shelter conditions and services, and promptly reports issues to the City’s Department of Homeless Services (DHS).

The Supervisor will also visit shelters throughout the city as part of formally scheduled daytime joint inspections with DHS as well as unscheduled inspections, which may occur during evening, nighttime, and weekend hours, in order to document violations and other problems.

In collaboration with Advocacy Department staff, the Supervisor will establish priorities and goals for shelter monitoring as well as engagement with shelter residents through outreach and advocacy. The Supervisor will also help organize, support, and mobilize shelter residents and formerly-homeless New Yorkers for Coalition advocacy campaigns and events. The Supervisor will adopt a professional tone consistent with the mission and goals of the Coalition for the Homeless in providing these services. 

Absent an exemption required by law, each Coalition for the Homeless employee is required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

***SIGNING BONUS***

QUALIFICATIONS: BA/BS required with a strong preference for coursework in social work, human services, legal studies, or a health discipline. At least three years of relevant advocacy, case management, and/or organizing experience required. Prior experience working in a shelter is not required.

Must have strong supervisory skills and be able to manage a diverse team of shelter monitors who are deployed on a non-traditional schedule. Must have a deep commitment to social justice and, in particular, identifying and addressing systemic and bureaucratic obstacles. Excellent oral advocacy, writing, editing, computer, and analytical skills as well as a desire to work as part of a team required. Lived experience with homelessness and Spanish language skills desirable. *Ability to work some evenings, nights, and weekends is a requirement for this position.

The Coalition will train the Supervisor with respect to the legal and regulatory framework relevant to the position and to the Coalition’s role as independent monitor of the DHS shelter system. However, to excel in this position, the Supervisor must take initiative to conduct research and review the resources available to them in order to provide guidance to their team with respect to identifying violations of the City’s right-to-shelter mandate and applicable Federal, State, and local laws.
