Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) is a community development corporation serving Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. CEDC’s core program areas are: development and construction of rental housing and for sale housing for very low and low income households; homeownership education and counseling; property management; and community building and neighborhood revitalization. The CEDC was founded in 1981.
CEDC Resident Services Philosophy
CEDC’s philosophy is that residents, especially those with special needs or other mental health diagnoses, thrive in independent living situations when a comprehensive and coordinated service safety net exists. To remain true to its mission, CEDC is making an in-house social work professional part of the fabric that defines RCS.
The Resident Services Coordinator position provides general information, referral, and linkages to community resources and coordinates educational workshops and community-building activities for residents of CEDC’s portfolio properties. This position requires a motivated and resourceful individual who is sensitive to residents' needs and has experience working with diverse, very low-income populations, including veterans, older adults, formerly homeless adults and families.
CEDC seeks a hands-on professional to assume a full time Resident Services Coordinator (RSC) position in Ventura County. The RSC will provide support to a diverse group of residents, will work with other staff to assist with outreach and special events, and will lend technical expertise to Property Managers. The RSC will work closely with Property Management and other CEDC departments. The RSC will focus on assisting residents to be successful in CEDC housing and in improving their economic stability. The RSC will provide information and referrals focused on housing success, crisis intervention, employment, education, and health and safety. The RSC will follow‐up on notices given to residents and work proactively to decrease the number of notices that result in evictions.
