Family and Community Service of Delaware County (FCS) seeks a Program Manager for the Ralph Moses House.  The Ralph Moses House is a 12-bed supportive, transitional housing facility whose mission is to prepare homeless men living with HIV/AIDS to transition to successful independent living.  While located in Chester, PA, the House provides services to HIV+ men living in the entire five-county southeastern Pennsylvania region.

The House provides residents with a supportive living environment with appropriate services to address the debilitating effects of long term homelessness and the special challenges of living with HIV/AIDS.  Residents receive intensive medical case management and related services designed to help them address their individual needs and assist them in learning to live self-sufficiently and independently.  Working together with other community-based providers, FCS’s on-site counselors provide residents with supportive services and life skills training so that they can achieve maximum self-sufficiency, learn to effectively manage their medications and overall health care regimen, attain the best possible quality of life, and enter the community as a productive participant.  These services made available to the House’s residents include:  medical and dental care, medical case management, educational and vocational training, life skills training, mental health therapy and drug and alcohol treatment, and instruction in HIV/AIDS prevention, safer sex and harm reduction techniques.

The responsibilities of the Program Manager include:  supervision of the House’s full- and part-time resident counselors, outreach and marketing with referral agencies, intake, assessment of resident eligibility, coordination of services with medical case managers, liaison with service agencies, ongoing resident assessment, and preparation and submission of reports to funders.

Required qualifications for the position include a master’s in social work (or a related human service discipline) from an accredited university or a bachelor’s degree with appropriate professional experience; a minimum of three years of experience as a clinical practitioner; supervisory experience; and a valid driver’s license and access to personal transportation.  Experience in working with persons living with HIV/AIDS, working with persons in drug and alcohol recovery, working with homeless persons, and work in residential programs is preferred.

The salary range for this position is in the low to mid 40s contingent on education and experience.  Competitive benefits.
