Wellspring House, Inc. is expanding its per diem staff for occasional coverage of weekend and/or overnight shifts at our family shelter in Gloucester. Wellspring has eleven regularly scheduled evening/overnight/weekend shifts every week. The purpose of the per diem pool is to provide a consistent, reliable team of substitute staff members to fill in during vacation, sick time, and other open shifts. Job duties include general supervision of up to 5 families residing at the shelter, ensuring that families are in compliance with shelter guidelines, and maintaining security and order for the facility. We especially seek applicants who have prior shelter and/or residential experience. In addition to being able to maintain professional boundaries, excellent communication and problem-solving skills are a must. High school diploma or equivalent required. Some college preferred. CPR/First Aid Certification required. Overnight shifts are considered ‘asleep’, but staff members must be available to readily respond to the needs of Wellspring House, Inc. and shelter families as necessary during the overnight hours. The per diem position is non-benefitted.
