Job Description

Overall Job Objective



Boulder County Department of Housing and Human Services (HHS) is building a healthy, connected community that empowers people and strengthens families by confronting the root causes of crisis and instability. Primary focus areas for us today are investing in early childhood well-being and education, greatly expanding access to affordable and decent housing in our community, and integrating data systems so we have a full picture of the needs of every neighbor who seeks our help.

Boulder County HHS is taking a lead role in the area of Interoperability -- the ability for residents and providers to coordinate service delivery across programs, agencies, geographies and domains. We are connecting human services providers across the community through an integrated service delivery model, care coordination, and population-level data integration and planning. A critical component of these efforts is the Boulder Connect Software platform, a case
management and closed loop referral system that directly connects community based organizations, HHS and other county departments and clients through real-time data exchange.

Internally, HHS is undergoing a shift towards using data in every aspect of decision making. We are building out a technical infrastructure to support decision making at every level of the department, particularly in our key operational areas.
