Are you passionate about helping homeless families and children live independently? Do you have a heart to ensure those living in the local community break cycles of homelessness by learning life/budgeting skills while in temporary housing?
Do you excel in a collaborative team that is driven by impact and supports each other like family? Do you hold a passion to decrease the negative effects of homelessness and trauma on families with children through financial literacy, life skills, and resource linking?
Are you the next Program Director of The Carying Place?
The Carying Place (TCP) is seeking an innovative, outcomes-driven Program Director to join its growing team. TCP serves working homeless families with children by teaching life skills for attaining independent living while providing short-term housing and support services to address their individual needs.
The Program Director is responsible for the successful development, implementation, and management of program services. The Program Director establishes key programmatic performance to fulfill The Carying Place’s mission, vision, values, and priorities. The Program Director reports to the Executive Director, serves on the leadership team, and serves as the point person for all program staff on a day-to-day basis.
Primary Duties and Responsibilities
The Carying Place (TCP) began operations in May 1993 as part of the Christian Community in Action (CCA). TCP was incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 1998 with its own Board of Directors. Since our inception, TCP has served over 500 families. About 80% of families who graduate from TCP are living independently at least a year after completing the program. Currently, the program supports 13 families at a time. Families live in homes owned by TCP in an environment similar to permanent housing and TCP pays for all housing expenses.
As a non-profit transitional housing program in Wake County, TCP supports families in their journey to independence and self-sufficiency. This is achieved through the mentoring and guidance of Support Partners and staff. Families are paired with a staff and volunteer team of Support Partners that provide weekly guidance in managing personal finances, setting attainable goals, seeking permanent affordable housing, and maintaining their employment. Over a 16-week period, families learn about the skills required for self-sufficiency through mandatory once-a-week meetings with Support Partners. The next 12 months of graduate programming is an elevation of life and employment skills and includes journeys to higher paying jobs and homeownership if desired.
