      Job Announcement

      EveryOne Home Interim Director

      Position:                     Interim Director

      Position Type:            30-40 hours per week, contract position

      Reports To:                Linda Gardner, Director of Housing & Community Development, Alameda County

      Compensation:           Competitive, depending on qualifications

      EveryOne Home is a collaborative effort of Alameda County, cities in the
      county and the community to prevent and end the cycle of homelessness
      for individuals and families. EveryOne Home is a comprehensive
      countywide plan that takes the groundbreaking approach of coordinating
      three systems of services - housing, mental health and HIV/AIDS - in
      recognition of the importance of systems integration in ending

      Officially launched in February 2007, EveryOne Home brings new hope for
      homeless families and for homeless individuals with debilitating health
      conditions including serious mental illness, HIV/AIDS and other chronic
      conditions. Implementing the plan will create 15,000 new units of
      supportive housing across the county - including new and renovated
      housing, as well as rental assistance. Coordinated services will provide
      the mental and physical health care and independent living skills that
      will allow residents to achieve stability and maintain their housing.
      New revenue streams, savings from decreased use of emergency services
      and the investment of resources into cost-effective housing and services
      will support these efforts into the future.

      EveryOne Home is currently housed at Alameda County's Department of
      Housing & Community Development (HCD), staffed by HCD staff and
      consultants, and overseen by the Sponsoring Agencies Group comprised of
      county, city, and community leaders.   Additional support comes from
      five committees:  Fund Development, Communications, Structure, Program,
      and Data & Evaluation.  Over the next twelve to eighteen months, a
      permanent organizational structure will be determined and staffing
      secured.  Please see www.everyonehome.org <http://www.everyonehome.org/>
