HomeAid Northern Virginia

Full-time Programs Manager

Who We Are:
HomeAid Northern Virginia is a small, local non-profit that builds new lives for families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness through housing and community outreach. HomeAid makes the right match between our partners in the homebuilding industry who donate time, labor, materials, and expertise and our non-profit partners with renovation needs—and manages these projects to reduce the financial and staff time burden on non-profits so that they can focus their limited funds on direct interventions with clients experiencing homelessness. Our work makes the entire system of safety net non-profits more sustainable.

Who You Are:

  • Manage relationships with project builders and service providers, ensuring timely communication and that all expectations are met from both parties, helping to overcome obstacles that delay progress of work and serving as the go-to person for both the builder and the service provider to help achieve project goals
  • Assist the Executive Director and CEO in expanding HomeAid Northern Virginia’s reach into Washington, D.C. by creating and maintaining new relationships with builder and non-profit/service providers in the area
  • Plan all details of appreciation luncheons at the completion of each project
  • Assist Executive Director & CEO with admin for larger projects
  • Attend networking/industry events to represent HomeAid; Assist at HomeAid special events

  • Must be flexible and adapt to a changing schedule of activities and priorities.
  • Must be highly organized, and able to multi-task in a fast-paced work environment with attention to detail.
  • Must be comfortable with and proficient in delegation of tasks to both staff and volunteers.
