The Shelter Manager works in conjunction with the Director of Homeless Youth Services to provide engaged leadership and operational oversight for two overnight shelter programs, co-located in the same downtown facility: Porch Light Emergency Shelter and Street Light Short-Term Shelter. These shelter programs provide a range of basic safety services for transition age youth (ages 16-24) who are experiencing homelessness and other traumas.

Ongoing duties include timely data entry and program reporting, scheduling, hiring, training and ongoing management of shelter staff and relief workers, professional program representation in the broader community, and occasional public speaking engagements.
