KM Partners has been engaged in the searches for multiple Affordable Housing Development Professionals at multiple levels including Project Manager, Senior Project Manager, and Associate Director of Development on the West Coast. All of these opportunities are newly created due to our client’s steady, consistent growth.


With a long-established and highly respected track record of developing, managing, and financing communities for low-income families, seniors, people with special needs, the formerly homeless, and veterans, this mission-driven organization provides industry leading training and professional development programs to continue to advance the skill set of their most prized asset, their team.


During our partnership with this client, the majority of the 14 professionals we’ve placed, have been placed into newly created positions due to growth. This company is vertically integrated and well capitalized with an expanding national footprint. Senior leadership’s focus on succession planning is opening the door for accelerated growth opportunities for top performers.



What’s kept you - and so many others - at this organization for 20+ years? 

“The realization that there’s really no other place – no other organization or piece of this world – where you can have more of an impact and get more done, and with as much variety. If you want to work on innovative, uniquely challenging projects where you can get creative to mix and match funding and operating sources, help to drive change in California, and be a part of cutting-edge development, this is where you should be. We have a strong balance sheet, we will take risks, and we have the ability to take risks that others can’t because of our credibility and reputation. You’ll have the resources to go out of the box on really innovative, complex projects. There’s a deep connection and cohesion around who we’re serving. It’s a very mature organization, and the Development team has a lot of folks who have been here a long time and who are ready and willing to share that. We have a stable staff who people learn a lot from.”
