Job Overview: Ansche Chesed, a Conservative Synagogue on the Upper West Side of Manhattan has, for over 30 years, run a homeless shelter 365 nights a year that hosts as many as 10 men each night. To run our shelter, we require two volunteers each evening. We seek to hire a part-time Men’s Shelter Coordinator who will help improve the shelter experience by:
• Work with current shelter volunteers:
o to improve their experience;
o to deepen their commitment to the shelter;
o to coordinate their time, schedules, and availability
o to confirm their dates, and remind them of their commitment
o to reduce no-shows and create a deeper commitment.
• Grow our volunteer base:
o Handle the volunteer calendar which has to be checked and kept up to date on a daily basis.
o Meet with synagogue members who attend other social action programming to advocate for shelter volunteers;
o Run Shelter trainings to destigmatize the volunteer experience;
o Create relationships with local organizations to create new pools from which shelter volunteers can be gained.
o Step in when volunteers do not show up for their shift.
• Partnerships and Advocacy:
o Participate in homeless advocacy programs with similar organizations to enable the synagogue to be more informed on issues related to homelessness in our area;
o Create relationships with local government departments, and other feeder organizations to increase shelter guests to meet our capacity.
o Maintain relationships with the agencies and social workers who assign guests to AC.
o Gain a better understanding of their needs and see how we can match our volunteers to help them thrive, where and when appropriate.
• Commitment to the issue of homelessness
