Tacoma Rescue Mission

We have an unique volunteer opportunity at Tacoma Rescue Mission to combine your knowledge of mobile apps and your ability to impact those experiencing homelessness in Pierce County. You can be part of our Outreach Alliance team!

We are looking for a software architect with experience building mobile apps, to be the lead engineer in our app project. You would be in charge of designing the software system, determining the technology stack, and distributing tasks to our volunteer developers team. This role may require 5 to 10 hours per week, over the course of several months.

For a brief overview about our Outreach Alliance project, please read below:

The Rescue Mission has formed an Outreach Alliance to offer space for training and collaboration to groups and individuals doing outreach to those experiencing homelessness in Pierce County. Outreach Alliance holds quarterly meetings, which are an opportunity to gather with others doing similar work and learn from facilitators about topics including: Outreach 101, Trauma-Informed Care, Mental Health First Aid, De-Escalation Techniques, and more.

Our vision is that our coordinated efforts will result in a greater number of individuals on the streets being reached by relational outreach efforts. As a result, we hope that more of these individuals will connect with life-changing services and move off the streets, for good.
