Job Description:

Founded in 1938, the OHA currently provides subsidized housing to nearly 16,500 families. The largest landlord in Oakland, OHA serves a diverse community in neighborhoods throughout the city. Our dedicated staff remains steadfast in its effort to gauge existing needs and provide meaningful opportunities for our families, in addition to expanding the availability of quality housing.

As one of only a select few housing authorities in the country participating in the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development's (HUD) Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration Program, OHA works with our community partners and stakeholders to develop and implement innovative solutions to the persistent issues of access to quality affordable housing, enduring poverty and lack of opportunity in America's very low income neighborhoods. The Housing Authority of the City of Oakland was selected among only 39 of the first cohort nationally (out of 3,400 eligible), to participate in the MTW program, which acts as one of "America's Housing Policy Labs", demonstrating and evaluating new solutions that can be replicated across the entire country.

Our innovative and locally designed strategies seek to:

* reduce costs and achieve greater cost effectiveness in expenditures;

* give incentives to families with children where the head of household is working, is seeking work, or is preparing for work by participating in job training, educational programs, or programs that assist people to obtain employment and become economically self-sufficient; and

* increase housing choices for low-income families.

At OHA, we consistently leverage resources by working with and through experienced non-profit service providers and other local government agencies to deliver access to health, education and social services that benefit our residents and our neighborhoods. We are grateful to our partners for their commitment and work to create thriving communities with real opportunities for the residents we serve.

Our ongoing efforts seek to invest in the future of the City of Oakland and OHA, as well as engage our community, improve public safety, increase staff development, and strengthen our business systems and operations, thereby positioning us to better serve our clients, now and for generations to come.
