LifeWay Network is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that joins the global movement against human trafficking by providing safe housing for women who have been trafficked, and offering education about trafficking to the general public. LifeWay Network (LWN) envisions a world in which human trafficking is abolished and every survivor is strong, connected and free. LWN is one of only two organizations in the New York Metro area specifically providing safe housing for women survivors of human trafficking, and the only organization providing safe housing to survivors of both labor and sex trafficking who are either foreign-born or domestic. What sets LWN’s Safe Housing Program apart is its community living model. It offers a safe home by welcoming each woman into a supportive, caring community of permanent residents.


The Residential Aide is part of the community in the safe house to provide a safe haven for women survivors of human trafficking. The Residential Aide provides coverage from evening until morning and collaborates with the House Manager, Social Worker and LifeWay administration in ensuring that there is appropriate oversight in the house and that the needs of the women are met. It is the goal of LifeWay that the team provides structure and oversight in the house, maintains effective communication with one another and the residents, and fosters a spirit of cooperation among all members of the household and staff.  

The Residential Aide provides coverage of the house during the hours in which the staff are off duty, although LifeWay Network will have an administrator available for consultation at all times in the event of an emergency.  Residential Aides will perform light housekeeping duties not during sleeping hours.

  • Be present in the house during all hours of the shift
  • Operate the security system at beginning and end of day
  • Perform light housekeeping duties such as laundry, cleaning, and disinfecting
  • Responsible for self-adherence to all COVID-19 precaution procedures including handwashing, disinfecting of high-contact surfaces daily, and wearing masks. 
  • Responsible to address any issue/emergency overnight and to notify staff immediately.


Qualifications:

  • High school or GED equivalent required
  • Prior experience in shelter/residence management preferred
  • Experience in housekeeping responsibilities required
  • Thorough understanding of confidentiality and privacy procedures
  • Strong computer skills, and comfort with web-based applications and Google Suite

  • Demonstrated success in relationship management
  • Heart, humor and a commitment to the LifeWay Network mission
  • Availability to work weekend days or evenings
