About

Shelter advocates provide direct support and assistance to hotline callers, shelter residents and their children. Duties may include answering crisis calls, providing information on safety planning, screening callers for shelter and making appropriate referrals.

Shelter advocates assist in the daily upkeep of the shelter through special projects like sorting donations, assisting with residents' questions and minor clerical work.
