The goal of the Womankind's emergency residential program is to provide a safe environment that will support the recovery of survivors and their children from domestic violence and will aid in their reintegration into the community.

The intent of our Residential Program is to be beneficial: all residential program staff works together to promote strong relationships between mother and child and supportive adult-to-adult interactions. We reinforce positive behavior and healthy attitudes. We assist residents in gaining essential skills and aim to advance psychological functioning.

The On-call Resident Supporter provides coverage at the shelter on an as-needed basis. The On-call RS may agree to stand in for all or some of the permanent staff positions as desired, covering weekday, weeknight, weekday afternoon, weekend days, or weekend nights, or a combination of the above.

If the On-call RS wishes to work on weekdays, one of their primary responsibilities will be to provide child care services to children living in the residence. And all On-call Resident Supporters will be responsible, under the direction of the Residential Programs Manager or Associate Director, for a variety of other tasks necessary to the smooth running of our programs and facilities.

Primary Responsibilities:

Ensure the facility is maintained in a safe and harmonious manner, including helping residents manage crises, solve problems, and resolve conflicts.
Support and strengthen the functioning of women and their children as well as other Womankind staff.
Ensure the well being and advancement of the children in the residence. If working on weekdays:
Provide direct child care services that are safe and comforting to children, including feeding/changing, supervising, empowering and enriching children.
Prepare and record meals according to CACFP regulations.
Coordinate child enrichment programs.
Work with the resident's advocate to improve care and functioning of the children.
If working day shifts at any time, perform in-person assessment of incoming clients.
If working night or weekend shifts, answer helpline.
Liaise and communicate with outside agents.
Perform maintenance tasks as needed (for example, room preparation and light cleaning).
Ensure that the residence is appropriately staffed according to regulations, meaning the staff member cannot leave until her/his replacement arrives and must be on call for extra shifts in case of emergency.
Other duties as assigned by management.

Bilingual in an Asian language or Spanish a plus, but not required.
At least 1 years' experience in similar field or working with children preferred.
Willingness to be trained.
Ability to work independently, highly motivated, strong multitasking skills.
Basic computer skills.
Knowledge of CPR/First Aid, fire safety a plus.
