Jobs at UGM

Ministry Support Workers (Sanctuary), on-call

The Opportunity

Are you adaptable, service-oriented, available to cover a variety of shifts (including overnight and/or weekend), and enjoy building positive relationships with marginalized women in the Downtown Eastside? If yes to all, we are seeking several auxiliary, on-call Ministry Support Workers who are responsible for assisting the Sanctuary Stabilization Program teams in the care of women—with or without babies—by ensuring they have a safe and clean place to find both direction and assistance. You may be making referrals for housing, clothing, shelter and recovery, as well as performing a wide variety of other duties, which could include organizing and participating in program activities with residents; driving and accompanying residents to appointments and/or meetings; and providing care for infants when asked.

This is a ministry position and a personal knowledge and experience of the saving work of Jesus Christ is a prerequisite. If you possess strong interpersonal skills, have related work or volunteer experience, and can successfully set healthy boundaries with demanding individuals and those in crisis situations, this might be a great opportunity for you.

You will frequently deal with clients in crisis situations, brought about by diverse problems.  There will be other staff nearby to assist as required.
