Assistant Program Manager, Respite Bed Program
CAMBA - Assistant Program Manager, Respite Bed Program
CAMBA’s Respite Bed Program is a network of over 35 churches and synagogues who donate their time and space to serve homeless clients of The Gathering Place, CAMBA’s Drop-In Center. Each site provides a safe bed and a warm dinner to between 6 and 20 guests nightly. This allows the guests to spend their days focused on overcoming homelessness, rather than on finding a place to sleep. Every site is run differently, but they have many things in common. All engage committed and compassionate volunteers; all provide a safe and friendly place for people in need; all serve nutritious and hot dinners; and all are secular despite being run out of houses of worship. CAMBA’s Respite Bed Program staff work to ensure that this dedicated network has all the resources and support necessary to provide the nightly services. The staff team recruits, trains, places, schedules and supports volunteers; ensures that sites have necessary physical equipment and supplies (beds a nd linen); and coordinates daily with the drop-in center about client issues including transportation, screening, orientation and appropriate behavior. Additionally, CAMBA runs one respite site directly, overseeing all operations and supervising all volunteers.
The person filling this position is expected, under general direction, to: (1) ensure the smooth day-to-day running, coordination and supervision of the Respite Bed Program and that all goals and performance outcomes are met;(2) ensure that community-based partners receive provision of linens and order cleaning supplies needed to provide a safe and clean environment in accordance with CAMBA and program policies, procedures, and protocols; etc. The minimum qualification for this position is a Bachelors’ degree (B.A., B.S.), two years of applicable experience working with street homeless, and the ability to be on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
