St. Martha’s Hall, a safe place for women fleeing domestic violence and their children, is currently seeking a full-time Women’s Shelter Advocate. Hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 3:00pm-11:30pm. The salary range for this position is $33,000-$45,000 annually, based on education and experience. Due to the residential nature of the shelter, this position is exclusively in-person.

The role of the Women’s Shelter Advocate is to support and empower women as they work to build a new life, free from violence. Using a trauma-informed lens, this position works directly with women in shelter to provide crisis intervention, community referrals, basic necessities, and help maintain a clean and safe environment for residents. 

St. Martha’s Hall offers equitable pay commensurate with the work required and competitive benefits, including a 403b match; medical, dental, and vision coverage; training and professional development; and paid sick, vacation, and holidays. Recognizing the high rate of burn-out and secondary trauma in our field, St. Martha’s Hall also offers additional benefits, such as wellness leave; additional paid holidays; and flex time. We work hard to recognize our employees and offer a considerate environment that values the quality of life of every person living and working at St. Martha’s Hall. 

Knowledge of issues impacting women and the dynamics of gender-based violence preferred. Successful candidates for this position will be flexible, empathetic, willing to work as part of a team, able to build rapport, understand healthy boundaries, and dedicated to the work of breaking the cycle of domestic violence.

 Must be at least 21 years of age, have a car, and valid driver’s license and insurance.
