Project Open Hand (POH) is a lead nutrition provider in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area. As the largest congregate meal provider, our Community Nutrition Program (CNP) team provides breakfast and lunch to over 4,000 older adults and adults with disabilities across 12 sites in San Francisco per year. Many of our sites are dining locations that also provide daily social and educational activities, including nutrition classes, bingo, arts and exercise. Project Open Hand's nutritious meals and community site activities improve health outcomes by lowering risks for disease, depression, and cognitive decline.
The Bilingual Linkage Coordinator is an exciting role that supports programming for older adults and adults with disabilities with a focus on identifying new potential clients in the community and linking them to services throughout our congregate meal sites.
As a member of the Community Nutrition Program, the Bilingual Linkage Coordinator plays an integral role in assessing data to identify trends and needs affecting these vulnerable communities and is responsible for coordinating internal and external programmatic resources throughout POH’s continuum of care and with partner organizations. This position will liaison with community nutrition sites and build relationships with new community partners to strengthen current, and build new, potential referral sources; explore, design, implement opportunities for program growth at the congregate sites; and take an active role in on-going agency projects related to research, food insecurity, and the broader range of social services.
This is a fixed-term position, with an end date of June 30, 2022, with the possibility of extension.
