COMMUNITY COORDINATOR
Relationships | Leadership | Team
Full-time, 40 hours per week

The Job 

Your focus is the heart of our work—building friendships with people who are homeless. You care deeply about people who are homeless. You exhibit humility in all you do, receive feedback well and are able to shift plans, are highly flexible and can prioritize human needs over administrative duties. You thrive on days spent in support—in hospitals, doctor’s offices, rehabilitation facilities, and the like.

Community Advocates: Community Advocates are the face of The Human Impact to those on the streets, developing relationships to restore dignity, developing individual plans of restoration, introducing advocates who can guide and mentor others, and developing initiatives for specific work and housing needs.

You also lead The Human Impact’s team of Community Advocates (CAs). You place equal value on the health and wellbeing of the homeless as you do for any team you manage. You spend time in thought and prayer for those you walk alongside—the homeless and your team of CAs. As our team of Community Advocates grows, you will continue to lead the team. You will report to THI founder and president Elisabeth Jordan and work closely with her to continue to develop the heart of the work, loving and caring for the homeless.
