Main Areas of Responsibility:
The Peer Support Specialist uses personal experiences to develop meaningful and trusting relationships with clients, acting as a mentor or “battle buddy.” Your role will provide services as part of our Community Support Shuttle, a fixed route of transportation connecting riders to community resources and services.
Additional Areas of Responsibility:
By talking with riders, the Peer Support will help to grow relationships that encourage seeking out help, without judgement, and changing the lives of those who are truly looking for a way out of homelessness or connection with resources for mental illness, substance use, and other programs.
Peer Support Specialists have excellent communication and interpersonal skills, and can relate to the most difficult personalities. Training or certification in Peer Support will be paid and provided by the organization.
