We are hiring!! Program Manager (housing overdose prevention and peer services)

Housing Overdose Prevention and Peers Services Program Manager

With funding from Island Health, Peers Victoria operates three (3) HOPPS Teams in supportive housing locations. It is expected that the HOPPS Teams will continue to evolve given the need to engage in a continuous quality improvement process to ensure these services are provided in a way that minimizes harms related to substance use. As some sites are temporary, the site assignments and hours of service may change in conversation with the funder, housing operator and other stakeholders. The primary focus of this position is the Housing Overdose Prevention and Peer Services contract, but the manager will also help the leadership team with management of other harm reduction and/or peer-led programming. 

The position is a minimum of 28 hours per week.  Up to 35 hours per week may be worked in response to weeks where the training schedule requires this.  The wage for this position is $34 per hour.  

This position is being posted internally and externally with a preference for an internal candidate.
