Summary

Harris County seeks a strong leader and change agent with proven experience improving performance in a large local government to plan, direct and manage the activities, programs and services of the Community Services Department (CSD) as the department’s Executive Director.

Under the guidance and supervision of Harris County Commissioners Court, the Executive Director of Community Services will guide policy implementation through planning and delivery of a variety of community support services that primarily seek to serve the county’s low- and moderate-income residents (recent Census data indicate that 16.5 percent of Harris County residents live in poverty), historically underserved populations, vulnerable communities and people in crisis. The successful incumbent is expected to enhance the County’s focus and success regarding equity and resiliency in delivering community-focused services to diverse populations.

As currently organized, CSD services encompass two general business lines – direct services (e.g, transit and social services) and capital investment (e.g., deployment of federal community development funds). The Department’s Executive Director is responsible for fiscal management, program planning and evaluation across CSD’s seven divisions: human resources, general services, financial services, community development, social services, transit services and disaster recovery. Additionally, CSD has a prominent role with County participation in the U.S. Census, and is in the process of developing an immigrant legal services program. CSD has more than 300 staff and anticipates total FY 2020-21 resources of $420.1 million, most of which is from external sources; only $12.4 million of the department’s anticipated current fiscal year funding is from the County’s general fund.

Almost 90 percent of CSD’s current-year resources are U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) disaster recovery funds. The department plays a central role in Harris County’s recovery from hurricanes and other disasters, including working with state and federal agencies and local partners to administer Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) housing funds through delivery to homeowners and housing developers. The importance of this role is heightened by the incidence of multiple flooding disasters over the past seven years, highlighted by Hurricane Harvey’s devastating floods in 2017. The department’s disaster recovery staff in 2016 totaled five; that number grew to more than 70 positions in three years.

CSD is also responsible for managing the County’s annual allotment of CDBG/HOME funds for a service area that includes unincorporated areas of the county along with 12 smaller non-entitlement cities that do not receive resources directly from HUD. This creates the potential for Harris County to be a national leader in housing-related services such as development of new affordable homes and other housing-related services. CSD’s new director will be expected to contribute to this through key initiatives including an ongoing County-led housing policy working group that includes the City of Houston, community organizations an advocates, as well as a joint housing plan being developed in partnership with the City of Houston.

CSD also utlizes CDBG funds for capital investment in public facilities and infrastructure. Additionally, the department provides programming for youth, senior citizens, veterans and the homeless population; limited transportation services to county residents; and emergency utility and rent assistance. Additionally, the department maintains a Housing and Community Resource Center offering information on fair housing, homebuying assistance, emergency shelter and similar support services. Through the Harris County Bereavement Program, CSD ensures that deceased individuals without financial means have access to a dignified funeral service and burial.

The Executive Director will be expected to lead and support the execution of key strategic priorities for the Commissioners Court; this may involve activities including initiation of strategic planning, development of performance metrics, and departmental reorganization/restructuring. The Executive Director must be able to rely on his or her management experience and judgment in leading CSD’s development and improvement, while also having the capacity to exercise a wide degree of latitude and creativity in identifying, planning for, and accomplishing agency goals. This position will require frequent interaction with the public; community and civic organizations; appointed and elected officials at the local, state and federal levels; and other County departments, local governments and key stakeholders and partners in the public, private and non-profit spheres.

This city of over 60,000 lies in two counties, Nash and Edgecombe and is home to NC Wesleyan College as well as Nash and Edgecombe Community Colleges. With lovely parks and greenways, a jewel of the City is the Imperial Center for the Arts and Sciences creatively and lovingly renovated from an abandoned Atlantic Coast Line Railroad water tank and pump house. The city is served by three major highways: I-95 to its west US 64 (Future 87) as its main east-west corridor and US 301 (Wesleyan Boulevard) as its main north-south corridor.
