Project Manager, Housing Ready Communities, Full Time, Destination: Home

Location: Administrative Office



      At The Health Trust we believe that Silicon Valley, a community where innovation is changing the world, also can be a community where innovation improves the health of everyone – especially our most vulnerable residents. That’s why our vision is a healthier Silicon Valley for everyone.  Destination: Home is a system disrupting, homelessness-ending program of The Health Trust.  We partner with the public/private sector to systematically end homelessness in Santa Clara County.

     Destination: Home believes that in order to fulfill the goals of the Community Plan to End Homelessness we need to develop 6,000 permanent supportive and rapid-re housing units throughout Santa Clara County.  In order to be successful, we must increase awareness about the benefits of permanent supportive housing and engage in coalition building throughout the county.  Over the next few years, Destination: Home will be focusing on creating broad awareness in support of affordable housing, enthusiasm and commitment by cities, leaders and neighbors to prioritize and advocate for developing supportive housing in their communities.  Destination: Home is looking for an energetic, driven individual that will lead this work in concert with our public, private, and nonprofit partners.
