Volunteer House Staff Member


This is a volunteer, live-in position with a fun, dynamic and busy home for women and children. The position is unpaid, but volunteers are invited to live in an intentional community inside of First Grace United Methodist Church, walking distance from Hagar's House.


All are welcome to apply. However, people of color, people who identify as transgender, women, people who are bilingual in Spanish/English, & people with experience with intentional community are especially encouraged to apply.


The main components of this position are:


- Being "on shift" at Hagar's House in the afternoons & nights for two weekly shifts, 9 hours each. Shifts would be Friday & Saturday 3pm-12am. In your application please confirm that these hours work for you.

- Attending a staff meeting each Monday, 9am-11am, + one monthly staff gathering that we schedule together

- Assisting with other house events & programs occasionally


Generally, in a normal week, you would have no or few Hagar's House responsibilities outside of the above & be able to pursue a part time job and/or other interests/commitments.


However, if you choose to take advantage of the free housing for volunteers in the First Grace intentional community, there will be one community meal each week and one community meeting, as well as some household responsibilities/chores shared with roommates. For more information and to apply, visit our Idealist posting.
