Project FIND Deputy Director Job Posting
Organization Overview Established in 1969, Project FIND is a not-for-profit, 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to helping seniors live engaged and active lives within the community. Project FIND operates publicly-assisted affordable supportive residences in the mid and upper west side of Manhattan with over 600 tenants and senior centers that served over 215,000 meals in 2012. Our Homeless In-Reach program also provides services that assist street homeless seniors to secure shelter from a variety of modalities, including the shelter system, transitional, shared living arrangements, and permanent housing.
The strength of our three residential programs is the integration of sensitized property management and social services. Our three housing corporations are regulated by NYC Department of Housing Preservation & Development under the Mitchell Lama and Preservation Finance program. Other regulatory actors include NYC Department of Homeless Services, NYC Housing Development Corporation, US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the NYS Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. Tenancy in our buildings range from individuals coming from the shelters to those with incomes up to 80% of Area Median Income.
Our senior centers, three of which are co-located in our residences, provide the context for social engagement, food security and ‘healthy aging', offering a wide range of activities, from horticultural therapy to yoga, tai chi to brain aerobics, salsa to strength training and accessible and affordable ‘creative aging' programs with poetry, painting, opera and a range of arts activities dedicated to improved cognition and social engagement for participants. Funding for these programs is derived principally from contracts with the NYC Department for the Aging and participant contributions.
