The Supportive Housing Program Manager (SHPM) oversees the delivery of supportive services in buildings restricted to serving seniors in an independent living environment as well as buildings serving people exiting homelessness with behavioral health conditions.

This position helps facilitate a strong working relationship between onsite services and onsite property management to ensure overall positive outcomes for the tenants and properties. The SHPM also works closely with the VHA Development Department in helping design services for new senior or supportive housing developments. 


Some essential functions include:

1. Designing and measuring outcomes for senior and supportive housing properties and reporting to partners and stakeholders.

2. Analyzing unmet needs of tenants and creating partnerships to address gaps.

3. Building and maintaining relationships with partner agencies in Clark County to align and avoid duplication of client services. Partnerships include but are not limited to AADSWA, DSHS, Community Mental Health agencies, and other supportive housing providers.

4. Supervision and training of direct reports, including monitoring of the provision of services, online case management quality assurance and reporting 

5. Building and maintaining strong relationships across departments at the VHA to ensure service provision is integrated and aligned with property management and development. 

6. Grant tracking and reporting to HUD and other community stakeholders on the provision and outcomes of services 

7. Coordinating nurse students at senior properties.
