DESC Permanent Supportive Housing provides apartment homes for formerly homeless men and women living with severe disabilities. We are firmly committed to the belief that the solution to homelessness is simple: housing. We offer housing to people before anything else, without insisting on abstinence or treatment compliance. This means we are able to end homelessness for the most vulnerable men and women in our community, not just those most able to navigate the system. Our approach has been recognized as a model for other communities and garnered significant academic study and praise.
We are looking for energized and passionate Residential Counselors to manage basic day-to-day operations in our Housing Programs. Residential Counselors serve to assist with the day-to-day needs of the men and women living in our Housing Programs, with special emphasis on working with tenants on issues related to ongoing mental illness and chemical dependency.
