Position Title: Data Analyst
Supervised By: HMIS Administrator, Executive Director
Responsibilities and Accountabilities:
The Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless (RICH) is a statewide organization dedicated to ending homelessness in Rhode Island. Formed in 1988, RICH’s mission is to seek comprehensive and cooperative solutions to homelessness in Rhode Island. This is accomplished through data collection and analysis, advocacy, training and education, collaboration, technical assistance, constituent services, and strategic communications. RICH works to build the public and political will to support the right for safe, affordable housing for every Rhode Islander. The organization works to ensure and support local, state and federal commitments to establish a continuum of affordable housing and homeless prevention programs. This work involves maintaining a broad base of key stakeholders to support and advocate for the organization’s vision, including homeless people, service providers, politicians, affordable housing allies, advocates, public and philanthropic funders, businesses, city and state officials, developers, faith communities and concerned citizens.
As the lead agency responsible for Rhode Island’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), RICH is in the unique position to use data and information to catalyze and inform change within the homelessness services system. RICH collects, analyzes, and disseminates data and information that is fundamental to the health and efficient operations of the State of Rhode Island’s Continuum of Care (CoC), which is comprised of state agencies, community partners, and individuals that guide the state’s homelessness policies and administer federal and state homeless funds as they work to build a statewide system to prevent and end homelessness. Building off the organization’s role as HMIS Administrator for the CoC, RICH’s next Executive Director will work with staff, consultants, partner organizations, funders, and researchers to advance data and evidence informed practices and strategies, including and especially coordinated assessment and housing placement, to rapidly and permanently end homelessness among individuals and families.
The Executive Director is accountable for the overall leadership, direction and management of the organization’s resources to accomplish the goals and mission of the organization. The Executive Director should have experience in financial management, community relations, program delivery, organizational development, strategic planning, and experience using data and information to strengthen both practice and systems. The Executive Director must have empowering leadership skills to work with staff, Coalition partners, Board and community stakeholders. The Executive Director exemplifies RICH’s values and nurtures its organizational culture by supporting a learning community of staff, Board, homeless constituents, community stakeholders, government and political leaders. The ED reports to the Board of Directors and will work with the Board, RICH’s membership, funders and other constituents to develop a new Strategic Plan for the organization during his/her first year in the position.

The theme for this year:
TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!
Today, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) published Mortgagee Letter 2020-04, “Foreclosure and Eviction Moratorium in Connection with the Presidentially-Declared COVID-19 National Emergency,” which announces an immediate foreclosure and eviction moratorium for all FHA-insured single family mortgages for a 60-day period. Read today’s Press Release from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on the subject.
The Secretary of HUD authorized these moratoriums as a result of the national emergency declared by the President of the United States. They are part of a broader federal government effort to address impacts to the financial well-being of individuals, families, and businesses, and to ensure families are not displaced during this critical period.
Updates to Single Family’s COVID-19 Q&A Available: FHA has developed and is maintaining a Q&A document to provide stakeholders with the latest information about FHA’s response to the Presidentially-declared COVID-19 national emergency. An updated version of the FHA Single Family COVID-19 Q&A is now posted.

Support experiential learning that empowers students to challenge themselves and help communities
They’re students who believe in the positive impact of community-engaged work. They don’t just earn a degree – they go further. They empower each other and themselves with the confidence that they can get things done. They learn to thrive, adapt and conquer the challenges that await them. They change communities and they change lives.
And the best part is that they aren’t a small cohort of students. At RWU, our mission is to bring civic scholarship as a way of doing things to every student, channeling our collective force into a singular goal: to strengthen society through engaged teaching and learning.
At Roger Williams University, we are committed to providing immersive learning opportunities for every student, putting their knowledge and skills to work solving real-world problems with community partners. With civic scholarship, our students go beyond traditional classroom learning and deploy into local and global communities, working hand-in-hand with community partners to address their specific needs and create meaningful change around economic development, sustainability and social justice.
Through the Campaign for Civic Scholars, we are doubling down on our commitment to provide the wide range of project-based learning and community-engaged work that we refer to as civic scholarship. And that means we need you to go further!
Your support provides the vital resources that prepare our students and faculty to go beyond the classroom and work with community partners on real issues. This isn’t a scholarship or financial aid – your funds help build an infrastructure for civic scholarship at RWU that creates meaningful educational opportunities while working to strengthen society through engaged teaching and learning. Each donation goes directly to creating the coursework that trains our students and faculty to collaborate as partners; developing deep community partnerships locally and globally; and purchasing the critical equipment to deploy them into communities near and far. With your help, we can bring civic scholarship to every student at RWU – and we’re almost there!
Please help us reach our goal of providing these transformational educational experiences that prepare students to fulfill their potential as lifelong learners, professionals and citizens.
Launched in April 2015, the Campaign for Civic Scholars has raised $1.6 million towards its three-year goal of $3.3 million. The powerful message behind the Campaign inspired donors – including Trustees, parents, alumni, and friends of the University – to contribute half a million dollars to provide current use resources that support our vital, community-engaged work.
SUPPORT THE CAMPAIGN FOR CIVIC SCHOLARS
In 2016, the Hassenfeld Family Initiatives Foundation contributed $500,000 to support faculty development, underwrite the work of Student and Faculty Fellows, and fund interdisciplinary projects in the local community. Read about the inaugural group of Hassenfeld Fellows who applied their knowledge and skills to interdisciplinary projects ranging from immigration law advocacy to working toward creating health equity, and more.
In 2017, the Feinstein Foundation committed $500,000 to support local students to attend RWU who had participated in service learning projects in their former elementary and middle schools. Pledging to do good deeds while in elementary or middle school instills a love for service that continues to grow when they arrive at RWU and dive into community-engaged work and volunteer service. Read about six high school students that entered RWU as Alan Shawn Feinstein Leadership Scholars this fall.
At RWU, we have several institutes and pathways that connect students with community-engaged projects and opportunities to bridge theory with practice.
