The Multnomah County Senior Collaborative (a senior services provider collaborative led by AGE+, Hollywood Senior Center, and Northwest Pilot Project) seeks an experienced Project Manager to oversee an 18-month countywide project to create a "State of Seniors" report identifying needs and assets in services to low-income seniors in Multnomah County, OR.
About the Multnomah County Senior Collaborative:
AGE+ was created to champion a new vision for successful and equitable aging for all Oregonians by empowering communities, linking generations and stimulating innovation to make longer life an opportunity, not a burden, especially for isolated and underserved older adults in resources constrained areas. We grew from our companion organization, the Jessie F. Richardson Foundation’s, desire to expand and focus on programming in Oregon.
Hollywood Senior Center (HCS) strives to promote the health, independence and well-being for adults 55 and older through services and activities for all older adults across a full spectrum of interests and needs. HSC is a designated Focal Point and District Senior Service Center under contract with Multnomah County’s Aging and Disability Services Division. HSC social services staff provides assessment and care coordination for seniors living at home, who need assistance to maintain their independence
Northwest Pilot Project (NWPP) is an Oregon nonprofit organization providing housing placement assistance, housing stabilization and housing retention services to very low and extremely low- income seniors (55+) in Multnomah County, OR, through rent assistance, case management, transportation, referrals and advocacy.
The goal of the report is to improve the quality of services to extremely low-income seniors (at or below 30% of AMI (Area Median Income)) with a focus on seniors that are part of underserved communities. Outcomes and deliverables include a robust asset-mapping process to identify existing services to low-income seniors, a needs assessment survey of the low-income seniors and input and assistance from volunteers, completion of analysis and final report. The reports results will be shared with participant organizations and individuals as well as the community at large through a substantive marketing effort.
The ideal candidate will have: a passion for working with non-profits and project stakeholders, local governments, and the public; experience leading engagement efforts that result in optimal project outcomes and, ultimately, better support for low-income seniors. A demonstrated commitment to equity and diversity with experience as a project manager and community builder with a proven record of developing and implementing outreach techniques and strategies for optimal engagement is a key attribute.
