REPORTS TO: Executive Director
WAGE STATUS: Non-exempt, $24.00/hr, 40 hr/wk
Our mission is to provide essential services and opportunities to transition out of homelessness in Salinas’ Chinatown, a small yet densely populated area where chronic homelessness is literally grandfathered into the environment, and we have never been closer to success. Every day, we work side by side with Chinatown residents and our collaborative partners to make what seems overwhelming and impossible HAPPEN, serving with client-centered plans, mapping a way out of homelessness and extreme poverty. The work is extremely difficult, requires extraordinary resources, and exacting accountability and risk management.
The Senior Executive Assistant works closely with the Executive Director and they together are responsible for implementing and coordinating an administrative core and financial accountability that sustains this effort and builds staff resources to the betterment of organizational health. This is a unique opportunity that requires experience, dogged dedication, innovation and a true desire to SERVE an extremely high-barrier constituency in an equally high-barrier housing environment.
