Solutions SF is a social enterprise of the non-profit Community Housing Partnership (CHP). Launched in 2007, Solutions SF runs an on call front desk Lobby Services business. The enterprise currently generates about $900k in annual revenue and provides supportive employment opportunities to approximately 50 on call and part time staff. Solutions SF employs formerly homeless individuals, providing not only employment with competitive wages and benefits, but also access to a wide variety of supportive services, including skill training, financial literacy education, counseling and professional development and a career path.
The Assistant Supervisor will be responsible for scheduling, data entry and documentation, and assistance in the oversight and operations of the desk clerk team. This is an excellent opportunity for a customer service oriented, organized, computer savvy individual with a flexible schedule to learn and grow with an organization that is growing and committed to helping change the lives of its employees.
Community Housing Partnership creates, implements, and demonstrates solutions to homelessness in San Francisco. To achieve this mission, Community Housing Partnership develops and operates high quality permanent affordable housing with comprehensive support services both on-site and through an outpatient substance abuse and mental health treatment program to assist its tenants who struggle with those issues. CHP currently owns and/or operates twelve housing sites that serve formerly homeless adults and families and has two new projects in the pipeline. CHP also engages in community and economic development through its certified job training programs, a community organizing project and a social enterprise that employs formerly homeless adults.
During the past five years, Community Housing Partnership experienced tremendous yet well-planned growth, tripling the size and scope of the organization by adding new services, innovative programs and over 900 units of housing. More significant is the fact that CHP has achieved an unprecedented 98% housing retention rate and 75% job placement rate among the formerly homeless adults and families it serves. CHP is financially stable with an annual operating budget of approximately $15 million. The organization has an outstanding staff of over 225 people, over half of whom were once homeless.
