Description

The Doorways Operations & Evaluation Intern will provide support to the Operations Team through research and writing projects, data aggregation and analysis, and administrative tasks.

Doorways for Women and Families (Doorways) is an Arlington-based non-profit agency helping individuals and families create pathways out of homelessness, domestic violence and sexual assault leading to safe, stable and empowered lives. Doorways offers a positive work environment, a committed and passionate team, and competitive salaries and benefits.

Our Mission and Vision

We envision a community where all people live free of violence and have safe and stable housing.

We see a future without homelessness - or domestic and sexual violence. And it’s why we create pathways out of these circumstances for our most vulnerable neighbors.

Our Values

At Doorways, we embrace Empathy, Integrity, Inclusivity, Collaboration, Empowerment, and Respect. These values are the foundation to our approach.

Our Approach

We are committed to helping people facing abuse and hardship find safety-and from there- supporting them in securing lasting stability. We believe that the most effective way to address complex issues such as interpersonal violence (domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault), family and youth homelessness, and poverty is to approach these through a lens of intersectionality and equity. There is no singular cause behind these issues, and therefore no singular solution. Our services are available to those impacted by any of these hardships to ensure people have the right help to move forward. We understand that the impact of trauma is far-reaching, so our services target multiple life areas for adults, youth and children. Our response to our clients is client and family-centered, trauma-informed, strength-based, and comprehensive.

 Assist with grant reporting and writing.

 Assist with best practice, academic and policy research pertaining to Doorways clients and mission.

 Assist in reviewing and creating agency materials.
