Career: Coldest Nights Program Staff

The Journey Home is seeking Program Staff members for the Coldest Nights program, an overnight emergency shelter program serving our community’s homeless adults, provided collaboratively with First Baptist Church, Murfreesboro Cold Patrol, Murfreesboro Rescue Mission and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.

Candidates that are only able to work on certain nights due to other work schedules or commitments are encouraged to apply for nights they are available. You do not have to be available every night. We believe that this is an excellent opportunity for people from a wide range of ages (including students and retirees) and backgrounds who desire to help their neighbor in need. Veterans have had great success in this role in the past.

Program Staff members are responsible for the general program operation, maintaining a safe and orderly environment for program participants and making sure the facilities are kept clean. Training will be provided and is required. The positions will be part-time and seasonal. This year, we anticipate (1) 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. shift nightly to assist with supper and check-in, (2) 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. overnight shifts, and one 3-4 hour cleaning shift each morning following an open-shelter night. Schedules are subject to adjustment or change due to program needs. Ideally, we would prefer to staff the men’s shelter with men and the women’s shelter with women due to the nature of some of the tasks and facility arrangements.
