IRCO’s Eastern Oregon team serves diverse refugee, immigrant, and US-born communities primarily in Malheur County, with a small suboffice in Baker County. Refugee and immigrant families in the area mainly hail from Central and South America, Africa, the Greater Middle East, and Asia, and do not have access to the same level of services and support systems as in major cities in Oregon or neighboring Idaho. IRCO implements culturally responsive housing navigation services, employment services, youth mentoring, economic development, health navigation, and early learning services. As community needs arise and as new families arrive, IRCO will continue to develop our array of resources and services.
The Eastern Oregon Site Manager oversees daily operations of the Ontario office and the suboffice in Baker City and is responsible for executing organizational policies and holding staff accountable to them. The Site Manager directly supervises members of the Eastern Oregon team including Coordinators and direct services staff; and shares supervisory responsibilities with the Portland-based technical supervisors for early learning and survivor services employees based in the Ontario office.

With support from supervisor, the Site Manager is assigned program design, start up, implementation and close out responsibilities for some program areas, and leads their team to achieve the outcomes of contracts on scope, on time, on budget and to the highest level of quality, working closely with technical experts in the agency to develop and implement program models.

The Site Manager serves as the main Eastern Oregon representative for funders, internal and external stakeholders, in close consultation with supervisor and other managers. The Site Manager also builds and maintains community support through various outreach and engagement activities and fosters dialogue between IRCO and the communities we serve. The Site Manager ensures that diverse community voices are heard that community needs are understood, and that the community is updated about IRCO’s progress and any new services available.

As a member of IRCO management, the Eastern Oregon Site Manager also provides input into policy development and supports agency-wide communications and the implementation of the strategic plan. The Site Manager functions with a high degree of autonomy but consults with supervisor and other managers on major decisions and/or tasks that have an impact on the team, operations, and finances.
