Walk With Me Program Manager

As the Walk With Me Program Manager, you are passionate about changing the state of homelessness in San Diego through the power of relationship. This passion stems from your prior lived experience on the streets. You are a visionary who wants to be a part of a ground-floor movement of God’s people serving and caring for those in need – including those who live on the streets, in local shelters or in low-income housing with minimal support. You see the potential behind every man, woman and child -- regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or background -- to rise above their circumstances and live life to the full.
As the Walk With Me Program Manager, you will cultivate relationships with local churches, social service agencies, homeless ministries, WWM area ambassadors and other volunteers, as well as the people we aim to bless. In essence, you will be the link to connect hundreds of people in need with the friends and resources required to move them forward in their journey to health and wholeness.
Individuals who apply for this position should enjoy a team atmosphere and have strong communication skills, but also be highly organized and able to successfully manage their own workload with ease. At the Rescue Mission we believe this is more than a job – rather it’s a calling to love our neighbors and those in need the way that Jesus would. The right person will have a strong calling to serve God and their community well.

To develop and administer a County-wide, multi-faceted training program for Walk With Me area ambassadors and other volunteers

To develop and manage the registration process/database for ambassadors, other volunteers and participants and help with pairing these new friendships
To be a resource for WWM pairings answering questions and providing updates
To assist with development of special events and communications materials
To represent our Mission, Vision and Values and continue to grow as a follower of Jesus Christ and Spiritual Leader

Requirements/Skills: Lived experience on the streets required. Street outreach experience preferred. Understanding the root causes of homelessness, including mental illness, addiction and trauma required. Some experience in an office or admin setting (corporate, church, or non-profit) preferred. Training or facilitating experience preferred. Proficiency in Word, Outlook, Excel and Power Point. Outgoing, organized, detail-oriented, fast learner, confident communicator, creative problem solver. Church ministry, social media and basic graphic design experience a plus.
