Joseph's House in Washington, DC is seeking a year-long intern to begin in August of 2018 and to serve through July 2019. This position is full time and is made available through The Discipleship Year Program, where 5-6 interns come each year to live in community together while serving in a non-profit dedicated to addressing poverty.

Joseph's House supports those with severe health conditions, predominantly those with AIDS or Cancer. Their residents are supported by staff and interns who are dedicated to providing the best health care and social/emotional support possible. Some residents die and the concentration around them is to give the best support possible at the end of their life. Others improve! This has been happening more lately and is encouraging. Come be a part of the Joseph's House family. It's a wonderful place to serve, despite the difficult circumstances of residents. This residential home is highly committed to providing love, nurture and support of the highest order and because of their excellent quality of care have been named the best hospice program in the District.


Discipleship Year provides staff support to interns. Interns engage in a weekly seminar together on Tues afternoons, along with engaging in classes at Soteria Community School. Both these programs (Discipleship Year and Soteria Community School) run out of The Festival Center, Inc. - our mothership!

Share meals together with housemates at the end of the day. Go on Retreats with Housemates 3 times/year. Enjoy DC. There is so much to do here and so many free activities!
