Our Shelter Assistant staff work in teams of two with our shelter guests to ensure safe, peaceful, secure, and effective functioning of a 60 bed shelter during evenings, overnights and weekend days. Because of COVID-19 and required space for physical distancing of guests, we are currently serving 35-40 guests 24-7.
Housing Assistants (HA) play a valuable role at Delores, serving as front line team members in our Supportive Housing program. HAs also work closely with Resident Support Specialists who provide on-site case management to residents. The HA position is ideal for people who are self-driven, who work well with others but are happy to work many hours alone, and who are able to be supportive and non-judgmental of people from all backgrounds and identities.
