Agency of Human Services - Director of Housing
Safe and stable housing is critical to all of the clients of the Agency of Human Services. To this end, the role of the AHS Director of Housing is to coordinate housing programs, policy and initiatives across the departments within AHS, and ensure that the agency speaks with a consistent voice across all relevant forums. The Director of Housing is responsible for developing a comprehensive, integrated approach to housing, including the development and implementation of a statewide agenda to reduce the incidence and duration of homelessness in Vermont.
Addressing the housing needs of Vermonters today and tomorrow requires options ranging from prevention strategies, emergency responses, and transitional programs, to longer-term housing solutions (such as supportive services, rental subsidies, and greater access to housing). Our departments provide housing services directly and through partnerships with dozens of local non-profit organizations in all regions of Vermont.
