Invites applications for a Permanent, Part-time Tenant Support & Community Support Services Coordinator

At the Town of High River, people come first. We are looking for a Tenant Support & Community Support Services Coordinator to join our organization and contribute to our culture focused on accountability, excellence, and connection. This is an opportunity to enjoy working and living in a community with a small town lifestyle with convenient access to larger centers. High River is a vibrant and thriving community that offers an inclusive social environment and locally-owned dynamic businesses.

The Community

High River provides the warmth and familiarity of a small town, featuring countless outdoor trails and parks that await your next adventure. Our downtown offers a variety of unique stores and businesses who take pride in fostering connection in our community. High River is a people-first community where families put down roots for generations. Nestled within Foothills County with the Rocky Mountains framing the view to your west, our community of 14,000 is rooted in people and promotes an environment to help you build lasting relationships.

The Organization

Through the dedication and passion of our 150 employees, we deliver important services to the community. Our purpose, or why we do what we do, is because we want to make a difference in our community now and for generations to come (our ‘why’). To achieve this, we inspire and respect one another, we can be counted on, we are better together, and we dare to be different (our ‘how’).

We’ve embarked on a workplace culture journey that has enhanced our commitment to people; both our employees and the community we serve. We have identified three pillars to achieve our workplace culture: Accountable, Connected and Excellence (ACE).

The Role

With Westwinds Communities, we have launched a project to support affordable housing tenants in High River, Okotoks and Diamond Valley. Reporting to the Manager of Community Support Services, the Coordinator, Tenant Support & Community Support Services will work collaboratively with new and existing affordable housing tenants, to develop support plans, coordinate and facilitate support programs as well as provide one on one tenant support and engagement. In addition, the Coordinator will allocate time to support the work of the FCSS Resource Centre.

The Coordinator will work with the Town of High River’s Community Support Services staff, Westwinds Communities colleagues, as well as community resources, case managers, nurses, etc. to develop support plans, as well as outreach and collaboration with other community organizations. The Coordinator serves as both a navigator and a connector and therefore is responsible for maintaining a strong working knowledge of the support services available and required for adults, seniors, and families. Additionally, the Coordinator will act as point of “first contact” for services for the Family and Community Support Services facility (in person and over the phone), providing a professional and positive experience for residents.

The right candidate will have post-secondary education in Human or Social Services or related field with 3 – 5 years experience in human services, program development and volunteer management. In addition, demonstrated ability to establish and maintain effective working relationships with various groups of people is required. The ability to maintain confidentiality and diplomacy while working with sensitive information is imperative. As travel will be required to various sites, a valid class 5 license, a vehicle and appropriate insurance is required.
