The NHRC Jobs Board – Recruiting Housing Counselors to Support Your Agency

The need for qualified and passionate housing counselors is a must have for many organizations that provide housing counseling services in the communities they serve.  With tight budgets for many nonprofit organizations, the National Housing Resource Center (NHRC) created a housing counseling jobs board where housing counseling jobs can be posted, and people looking for jobs can search, all without charge.  Why It Was Created NHRC and other organizations across the country realized that agencies would be looking to hire in order to help build capacity with the Housing Stability Counseling Program funding, other funding sources, and the increasing demand for housing counseling services. Since its inception, The National Housing Resource Center (NHRC) has been at the forefront of the housing counseling community by organizing nonprofit housing counseling agencies into a unified voice throughout the United States.  We are also dedicated to organizing nonprofit housing counseling agencies to advocate for and on behalf of communities of color, the elderly, low and moderate-income people, and underserved populations.  NHRC continuously works to advance public policies, programs, and educational materials that will strengthen the housing counseling industry and benefit housing consumers. The Housing Counseling Job Board is a tool we hope will help organizations strengthen and grow their services.  Why You Should Use It Posting available positions at your organization on the NHRC Housing Counseling Career job board is free to all HUD-approved housing counseling agencies across the country, regardless of size or the community in which they serve.  Using the NHRC Housing Counseling Career job board breaks the monotony of sifting through countless resumes from applicants who have no experience in the housing counseling community, and brings into view those who are specifically interested in the industry.
