Over the past century, the programs and services offered by LSH have changed in response to the evolving needs of the community. However, the core mission of LSH —”to empower individuals, families, and communities to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency through an integrated program of social, educational, and advocacy services”— has remained constant.
Scope of the position: Under the supervision of the Case Management and Adult Programming Supervisor, the Housing Stabilization Specialist provides support to families to help them avoid homelessness. The Housing Stabilization Specialist will focus on assisting families (approximately 35) with issues specific to retaining housing and will provide linkages to other resources within LSH and externally for their social service needs. This position requires evening and weekend hours to meet with families that are not available during the standard business day. This position requires travel throughout Philadelphia.
