MAGDALENA MINISTRIES, INC. PROGRAM COORDINATOR

Magdalena House is a transitional neighborhood of homes in San Antonio that serves mothers and their children who have fled dangerous and abusive lives by providing transformation through education, nurturing community, and programming.  We provide a free, safe, transitional home and loving community for those affected by family violence and human trafficking, mothers who have aged out of foster care, and those working with CPS, as well as mothers facing homelessness.  Families’ needs are addressed and met, including unique programming designed to foster self-awareness.  Vocational assistance in the form of education, training, and job readiness is a key ingredient, as mothers are required to attend school by taking college, high school, or GED classes.  Through these and other enrichment courses and events, mothers living at Magdalena House develop social, educational, and financial skills needed to ensure the physical, economic, and spiritual well-being of themselves and their children.

 

We are seeking a motivated, organized, and compassionate individual with excellent interpersonal skills to provide assistance to the Magdalena House Program Director.  The Program Coordinator is responsible for providing resident and community support, oversight of evening programming, coordinating program-related volunteers, supervising children’s activities during weekly enrichment classes, documenting services, and other duties as assigned by the Program Director and Executive Director.
