Do you see yourself in these qualities often used to describe an advocate?
If you have a passion to help others and you’re seeking a new challenge, then CASDA is the place for you!
We are currently hiring Shelter Advocates.
Responsibilities include: Providing advocacy and supportive services to residents of CASDA’s Emergency Shelter for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse; providing crisis intervention for callers to CASDA’s 24-hour helpline; and assisting with upkeep of the Emergency Shelter facility.
To ensure 24-hour care, Shelter Advocates must be flexible and willing to work all scheduled shifts. However, advocates sign up for shifts that work best for them — a flexible part-time position well suited to students and/or individuals with other commitments!
Qualifications include: Course work in Social Work, Human Services or related field and/or at least one year experience working with victims of domestic and/or sexual violence. All new advocates complete CASDA’s full advocacy training program prior to filling any shifts.
