Vice President

Hiring Company: Pine Street Inn
Location: Boston, MA

Job Description


Organization Overview: Pine Street Inn is a not-for-profit organization committed to men and women in need of shelter, sustenance, and the basic moral and material supports necessary to lead a dignified and stable life. It is the mission of the Inn, in all its programs, to be a community of respect and hope for each guest it serves; to be a resource through which neighbors and friends can help to meet the basic needs of others; and to serve as a national leader in the fight to end homelessness. Since its founding in 1969, Pine Street Inn has been adapting services and forging key collaborative partnerships with various state and local agency departments, mental health, and clinical providers to ensure quality wraparound services and ultimately build a pipeline to housing in an effort to end homelessness. Today Pine Street Inn is the city's largest provider of homeless services and is taking the lead on implementing innovative programs in conjunction with the City of Boston's plan to eradicate homelessness. In the past year over 9,000 individuals were impacted through all Pine Street Inn programs including: permanent supportive housing, emergency shelter, street outreach, workforce development and social ventures, stabilization, and veteran's services. Pine Street Inn covers 98% of citywide street outreach, and every night over 630 guests are housed at the Inn's 4 shelters. Learn more at www.pinestreetinn.org.

Position Overview: Pine Street Inn is now seeking a Vice President of Emergency Services to oversee all outreach and emergency shelter services while ensuring guests are moved along the pipeline and into permanent housing. Being faced with a number of challenges, including the population of homeless individuals in Boston becoming younger, the length of stay within shelters increasing, more and more guests having needs beyond just housing, and external standards increasing to ensure quality services, the incoming VP will have the opportunity to implement a variety of new, emerging national strategies to overcome these issues. The strategies may include, but not be limited to diversion, rapid rehousing, coordinated care assessments and clinical outreach alongside an exceptionally talented and passionate team within the emergency services operations. The Emergency Services department incorporates Pine Street Inn's homeless shelters and outreach programs with a budget of about $7 million and 150 employees. The VP maintains direct oversight of this department with five direct reports, works closely with the program team and external partners, and reports directly to the Chief Program Officer.

• Incorporate national best practices and regulations around homelessness diversion, mediation, and rapid re-housing strategies
• Incorporate Affordable Care Act changes while also capitalizing on opportunities and mitigating challenges that exist within the delivery of case management and clinical services of guests

Ongoing Responsibilities:
• In collaboration with the Chief Program Officer and Pine Street's leadership team, engage management and staff in evolving outreach and shelter operations in accordance with the agency's strategic plan
• Develop and implement approved annual program goals and plans towards transitioning long term homeless individuals into permanent housing and reducing lengths of shelter stays for other homeless individuals through diversion, rapid rehousing and other evidence-based strategies.
• Lead management and staff in consistently delivering services that emphasize dignity, respect and fairness in all interactions with the Inn's guests
• Working closely with Operations, Program Planning, Fund Development and Government Relations management, insure that the Inn's shelters and outreach programs are in compliance with all regulatory and funding expectations and requirements; contribute to the preparation of grant proposals and contract renewals as needed
• Manage senior and mid-level relationships among a portfolio of key external collaborators and funders including but not limited to: the Commonwealth's Department of Mental Health, Department of Community and Housing Development, and Department of Public Health; City' of Boston's Public Health Commission, Department of Neighborhood Development, and Police Department; third party vendors and contractors; and other homeless services providers
• Working with Senior Management, the Inn's Directors of Community and Government Relations and Security, insure that outreach and shelter management establishes and maintains appropriate and regular engagement of the programs' neighbors, collaborators and vendors
• Co-develop, direct, promote, manage, revise and maintain all approved Pine Street Inn regulatory, personnel, facilities, program, operations, financial policies, protocols and procedures
• Establish, implement and evaluate annual performance of all direct reports including specific objectives connected to the agency's overall strategic and annual plans, achievement of guest service plans, data management, and professional development
• Working with Pine Street Inn's Human Resources department and direct reports, insure that all human resource policies and procedures — including required training, time sheets, benefits enrollments, etc. are appropriately communicated, followed, documented and evaluated for all staff working in outreach and shelter programs
