Currently, we offer internships in the following departments:

Are you seeking the chance to learn how a non-profit works behind the scenes? Development Interns assist our fundraising team with prospect research, volunteer outreach and management, data entry, and other light administrative tasks. This is a great way to discover the ins and outs of non-profit management!

Work with our Access Case Managers to provide resources to program participants seeking permanent housing. You will lead Subsidized Housing Workshops, distributing materials and relaying information in an accessible, applicable manner to attendees. Additionally, you will also assist with housing/property research and data entry.

This is an opportunity to help our team that works with newly housed participants. Interns will aid Retention Case Managers with administrative tasks, such as organizing files and typing case notes, and will also assist participants one-on-one with housing searches.

Assist our Veteran Services team as they lead the community's efforts in housing homeless veterans, while gaining valuable experience in social services. Veteran Services interns will help with data management and grant compliance, follow up with participants and community partners to ensure participant needs are being met, aid with housing applications, and provide general administrative and reception assistance.

A degree is not required, but coursework or experience (paid or volunteer) in sociology, psychology, or other human services fields are preferred. Additionally, MSW students seeking an internship supervised by an MSW are welcome to apply.
