About

Lydia's House of Cincinnati, Ohio is currently looking for a female homeless advocate to live in our main property and support homeless families as they work to establish stability and grow in wholeness. The term of service is a minimum of one year (with possible extension) and applications are being accepted for a January 2018 start.

Qualifications: Advocates will be challenged with a job that includes direct service, program planning, administration and political activism. Advocates should be strong communicators, self-directed, and have previous experience working with individuals or families in crisis. Experience as a live-in staff person with program planning responsibilities (RA, Camp staff, etc.) is also very helpful. Advocates will be expected to do 20 hours weekly of on-sight duty at the main shelter property, which will include meal preparation, house management, transportation, and childcare. Advocates will also be able to choose additional responsibilities including communications, website work, special programs, construction and maintenance, gardening, and lobbying. We are seeking women who desire to embrace life in a Christian community and commit to regular prayer and service. Some experience with the Catholic Worker model or intentional community is also helpful.

Compensation: Each worker receives a monthly stipend, all food, housing, and transportation and a generous self-care allowance including counseling and retreats. All Lydia's House community members also have access to classes at nearby Xavier University. Volunteers should be passionate about living alongside the poor and living simply. For more information and the application, visit our website at http://stlydiashouse.org/associate-program/ or email maryellen@stlydiashouse.org.
