A few Lancaster County non-profits, including Community Action Partnership, Lancaster County Housing & Redevelopment Authorities, and Tenfold (formerly Tabor Community Services) provide rental assistance programs. When the U.S. Treasury launched a $25 billion Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), these companies were in need of additional long-term contract employees with the sudden influx of people who needed ERAP help.
The job market had been stagnant, and these organizations had trouble sourcing candidates. The challenge was finding individuals who were willing to working in an open-ended assignment which could last for a year or more.
These non-profits reached out to TriStarr as a source for temporary/contract employees who could commit to a long-term assignment. The team was able to find the required long-term bilingual candidates by searching through the TriStarr database and recruiting candidates through postings on job boards and social media.
TriStarr placed 15 emergency rental assistance application processors, rental payment assistants, and resource liaisons in assignments with these organizations.
