Senior Development Officer in Minneapolis, MN

Urban Homeworks is a workplace for those who genuinely want to grow. You'll be challenged personally and professionally BECAUSE people actually care and are invested in you. There are SO MANY benefits to working with Urban Homeworks. Flexible work environment, PTO, lots of fun, happy hours, co-workers who actually care about you and the community. The new leadership team has clarity on the mission and is leading us all to be community-centered. They do it in a way that encourages balance and rest. I have nothing negative to say.

Team seems to truly care about each other; the most successful team members are highly self-motivated and don't need enormous amounts of management/supervision to do their job well. The small internal team makes for having to sometimes wear multiple hats and with the work being around Housing and Racial Justice - the stress level can get high. However, the current management seems committed to making processes more and more efficient, figuring out where the gaps are, and encouraging a healthy work life balance.

I was hopeful I could stay here forever because I loved the mission so much, but there's definitely cliques and a focus on being the "old guard" and if you're a "bro" you advance much more quickly. From afar, it seems like it's changing a bit.

Great mission, great people, very high energy organization. Management struggled to stay organized through a dramatic growth period. Constant re-structuring made it very difficult to focus on work. High turn-over due to internal conflict.

Urban Homeworks is a religious base non-profit housing and training organization that believes in assisting low income families with decent and affordable housing. They have a construction training programs that is awesome. They provide excellent maintenance and emergency services for their tenants with a smile on their face. My typical days varied, but for the most part I would maintain the maintenance rent manager system as maintenance calls and emails would come in. Calendar coordination and gathering documents and information for upcoming team and staff meeting. I learned how to gather the proper tenant compliance documents for lease renewal signing and income qualification. Support the functions of a property management office and create work orders. I have no complaints about any of my co-workers, they were all supportive team players and pushed for the same outcomes. The hardest part of my job was supporting the maintenance because most of their work was done outside the office. Making sure all work orders was entered with all the correct and contact information and closing them out when the work was complete. Calling in emergencies took some last minute coordination. It was lots constant incoming and outgoing calls with the tenants, maintenance and contractors with some frustration from the tenants at times. The most enjoyable part of my job was people contact with the tenants and public in person or over the phone. I enjoy interacting with others.
