COMMUNITY CONNECTOR
Events | Interns | Volunteers & Donors | Operations
Full-time, 40 hours per week

Our Mission & Motivation

The Human Impact exists to befriend the homeless and bridge the relationship gap to change lives.  We follow Jesus to “His poor” (Mother Teresa). We see God using His power to defend the cause of the vulnerable, marginalized, and oppressed. We want to join Him in this work-using our resources, network, and gifts to care for those He loves.

The Job 

You are a bridge between communities. You love connecting people across race, gender, socio-economic status, and age. You think creatively about how to facilitate and encourage not only new connections but extend connections already in place. You love to empower people in the midst of what can be messy, and help others move towards true friendship in spite of those external factors that commonly divide us. You innovate, think strategically, are adept at creating new systems or utilizing existing systems to further bridge the relational divide. This way of thinking and implementing leads to greater engagement from volunteers, advocates, and donors. As a result, more homeless are connected with and more formerly-homeless experience more robust teams circling around them. You thrive on challenge and delight to see growth, as you experience your hard work bearing fruit.
