Employment at BRM
Current Openings at the Mission:
If you have a heart for the poor and homeless, and a desire to feel good about your work, consider joining the Boston Rescue Mission team. Boston Rescue Mission is a non-profit, Christian organization serving the poor and homeless in downtown Boston. We are a family of people who sincerely care about those who are less fortunate, and who also see that the work of caring for those people actually happens.
One of the special aspects of the Mission is the staff's dedication and commitment to share God's love and grace through service to God and others. We strive to introduce Jesus to our guests by emulating His example of compassion and care through our services. Our staff is varied in talent and profession, yet we are bound in our common effort and love for the people we serve and the Lord who has charged us to care for them.
We are challenged by the demands of serving our brothers and sisters and do experience some of the emotional highs and lows of our clients' successes and occasional failures. We strive to do our best each day and to treat every individual with fairness, dignity, compassion and respect.
Working at the Mission is a dynamic experience. Employees here demonstrate a special blend of heartfelt enthusiasm and dedication to their work. The work environment of the Mission "house" is unique in that employees and guests often form a family-like relationship. Meals are shared among staff and guests, clients work together at chores and there are optional Bible studies and church services. Working at the Mission presents the rewarding opportunity to form relationships with those who come to use our services.
Guests of the Mission create a special atmosphere when they bring their individual stories, gifts and struggles to the house. Most are battling drug or alcohol addictions, and all are seeking respect and acceptance. We are a community that learns and grows together, and many of us have chosen this work out of a strong desire to better our world and help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. The Mission's goal is to provide a continuum of care that begins at each individual's point of immediate need and moves them along by providing appropriate guidance, resources and direction. Staff members strive to create an atmosphere of healing, where emotional, spiritual and physical needs are met.
All members of the house also have the opportunity to interact with the numerous volunteers that come through our door every day to learn about the Mission and help in our cause. Together we practice tolerance and understanding, break down walls and forge new friendships. We work as a team to provide structure, stability, security and hope for all of our guests. Everyone who enters the house is shown equal respect, whether they be president of the Mission or a first time guest.
Our mission is to provide hope and opportunity in the face of tragedy, despair and hopelessness that comes along with homelessness and drug addiction. We recognize that we work hard to be part of the solution, and that in doing so, we are part of something bigger than ourselves. We invite all qualified individuals interested in the rewards that come through employment at the Mission to submit a resume for both present and future job openings. Resumes are kept on file and reviewed when positions become available. Applicants should have a heart and passion for the poor and needy, and a commitment to being a good steward of all resources and gifts. Your reward will be knowing you are making a difference.
