Since 1988, Housing CA has been working to prevent and end homelessness and increase the variety and supply of safe, stable, accessible, and permanently affordable places to call home. Housing CA envisions a California with homes, health, and prosperity for all in thriving communities.
Housing CA is committed to creating a just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplace that fosters a culture of ongoing learning and collaboration and supports, stabilizes, and incentivizes people to join the Housing CA team and stay for the long game (e.g., professional development plans and opportunities, creating opportunities for professional advancement, staffing growth).
We value having staff who come from communities that are most impacted by the issues we address. We especially encourage Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and people of color; people from families that have immigrated to the U.S.; women; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans people; and disabled people to apply for these positions.
Position Description: Housing CA seeks candidates with a proven ability to advance transformative statewide policy strategically and collaboratively to fill two positions: Legislative Advocate for Homelessness and Legislative Advocate for Land Use and Finance.
