We Are Family has been serving low-income, isolated older residents of the Shaw, Columbia Heights, Petworth, and Adams Morgan neighborhoods of Washington, DC since 2004.

With a small staff, We Are Family mobilizes its diverse, committed network of over 5,000 volunteers to accomplish its mission. We build bridges between our volunteers and seniors across boundaries that can keep us apart, such as age, race, class, religion, culture, language, or sexual orientation. The bonds that are built between members of the We Are Family community help create a network of caring eyes and ears, so that our seniors do not fall through the cracks or feel forgotten and alone.

We Are Family uses a unique and effective model in serving our seniors. Those in most need often do not know about resources available to assist them. Therefore, it is critical to build a bridge between those in need, existing services, and the caring community that stands behind them. We Are Family serves as that bridge, sending volunteers out to bring resources and friendship directly to our older neighbors, helping them to continue living independently in their own homes. Moreover, despite their challenges, our seniors have great strengths and gifts to share with the community. We work together to accomplish the aims of We Are Family, a mission that goes far beyond simple social service provision.

The Outreach & Volunteer Coordinator position will build on We Are Family’s long history of bringing seniors and our volunteers together. The Coordinator will reach out to our elderly neighbors to learn more about their needs and how We Are Family or other partner agencies can help meet those needs. The Coordinator will also work closely with We Are Family volunteers to match them with appropriate opportunities to support our seniors, while ensuring the elders’ gifts are being put to use as well.

Daily duties will involve both phone and in-person communications with seniors, including going out into the communities we serve to meet with them and identify their needs. The Coordinator will also communicate with and coordinate volunteers by phone, email, and in-person. The Coordinator will provide guidance and orientation to our volunteers and provide support to volunteers. The Coordinator may also work with other staff members to help carry out our grocery delivery program.

The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who is passionate about We Are Family’s mission. In addition, the candidate must have good interpersonal skills and be able to communicate with and work with people from a wide range of backgrounds. Candidates must also have computer skills in order to navigate database systems and keep careful records of activities.

This is a full-time position. Ability to work up to two Saturdays a month preferred (with comp time provided accordingly). When not doing in-person outreach, coordinating volunteers at one of our sites or helping with food deliveries, the Coordinator may work remotely.

Salary range between $50,000-60,000. Medical, dental, and vision benefits are provided and fully paid for. After a year of service, employees are also eligible to participate in We Are Family’s 401k plan, which includes matching employer contributions. Full-time staff receive 4 weeks of paid vacation.

We Are Family is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
