About

Redemptive Work (RW) is looking for volunteers interested in working one-on-one with displaced, disabled, formerly incarcerated or other socially outcast persons to create sustainable living situations. Our clients are in need of assistance accessing local resources and services, personal goal setting, employment search, and more. In the beginning, RW workers can train you to find and pass on these resources.

On Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30am-3pm, Redemptive Work holds a walk-in clinic where clients meet with coaches to find solutions for overcoming their societal barriers on a case-by-case basis. Coaches meet with individuals one-on-one to assess their needs and work with them to create realistic and actionable short-term and long-term goals. Meetings take place to achieve these goals over the course of the next weeks and months until the client has achieved sustainability in their life (stable income, manageable housing, and access to healthcare). Coaches receive training and resources on life and career coaching, accessing social services, capacity building, and community outreach. In return for ongoing training and opportunities for greater responsibility, we ask that our volunteers commit to a minimum of 2 hours per week for at least 3 months.

Requirements:
  • Availability Wednesdays and/or Thursdays from 8-3
  • Work a minimum of 2 hrs per week
  • Willingness to develop cultural sensitivity and compassion for others
This opportunity is ideal for students, retirees, those with flexible schedules, those looking to gain transferable skills, and anyone passionate about social and economic justice.
