About Community Solutions and the Built for Zero team:
Ending homelessness is not just our mission statement — it’s a reality we are helping communities achieve everyday. Community Solutions is a team of social problem solvers working to end homelessness and the conditions that create it. Our Built for Zero team is working with roughly 70 communities across the US and around the world to build a movement to end chronic and veteran homelessness — 10 of which have already ended veteran and/or chronic homelessness.
Community Solutions seeks leaders at every level: extraordinary, mission-oriented people not satisfied with the status quo. We are a team of values-driven innovators motivated by results. We eagerly seek and support diverse applicants. We provide generous benefits and opportunities for inspiring and transformational professional growth. We pride ourselves in developing an inclusive workplace culture that encourages staff to bring their whole selves to work every day.
The Senior Communications Strategist will implement multi-disciplinary campaigns to help a select cohort of high-impact Built for Zero communities end veteran and/or chronic homelessness. This position understands the critical role that strategic communications and campaigns can play in driving behaviors and attitudes in the direction of social change. They will leverage digital organizing, traditional media, community engagement, and influencer strategies to end homelessness in communities and, in doing so, shift the national conversation about the solvability of homelessness.
