System Planner

The Calgary Homeless Foundation

The Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) is a registered charity that exists to end homelessness in our city. Through Systems Leadership and mobilization of collective impact CHF is a catalyst and enabler for Systems and Service Agencies to optimize client success. CHF is committed to moving forward in partnership with the many homeless-serving agencies, the private sector, all four levels of government (Federal, Provincial, Municipal and Indigenous), the Indigenous and faith communities and all Calgarians to end homelessness in Calgary. We are looking for passionate, entrepreneurial and talented people with a knowledge of Indigenous culture to join our action-oriented, high impact team.

The Position

Reporting to the Director of the Homeless Serving System of Care, the System Planner plays a key role in the implementation of CHF’s strategic direction and system coordination priorities focusing on program investments and liaison with partner agencies. This role also provides feedback to the Director of the Homeless Serving System of Care in decision making and will have opportunities to assist in providing the implementation of an internal Indigenous Strategy that will enhance CHF’s capacity to be informed by, and amalgamate, an Indigenous lens throughout the business of the organization. CHF honors the intentional journey that it and members of the Indigenous community have begun together in action of reconciliation. The System Planner will also work alongside the Director of Indigenous Strategy and Relations to ensure that CHF’s Indigenous Strategy is authentic to the needs of Calgary’s Indigenous community; aligned with CHF’s Strategic Directions and Business Plans; and supports CHF’s four strategic pillars of work – Research & Development, Community Mobilization, Funder of Outcomes and Impact, and Public and Political Will.

The System Planner will provide effective stewardship of funds through program reporting, monitoring and oversight of an assigned portfolio of projects delivered by community agencies under contract with the Foundation. This role works closely with assigned agencies and supports the design of programs and their performance measurement, particularly through the implementation of monitoring and remediation and technical assistance to homeless serving agencies.
