About the Role:

You will based in the Wolverhampton (Black country) area team for 16 hours a week as a Church and Tenant Empowerment Worker.

You will be working alongside the tenants in our homes. Each home is partnered with a local church who provide volunteers who you will also support. This will include training, equipping and encouraging them for their role as mentors and befrienders to the tenants and giving practical support as well.

You will be responsible for 2 houses, 6 tenants and working in partnership with up to 2 churches. 

As an Empowerment Worker, you will also be supporting our tenants who have been homeless. Tenants will be single males with support needs and you would empower them towards a fulfilled life enabling them to move on to independent living.

About you:

For this role, you would be someone with a passion for the homeless and our values, who is able to work with church leaders and church members alike. You will need to be able to work with tenants with support needs, including poor mental health, past offending, and drug and alcohol dependency issues. We value good listening skills. The ability to work in a flexible team and learn new skills is important as we foster working within a strong supportive team.

We love diversity and we value your unique skills, strengths, knowledge and experience. Becoming one of our team may realise your potential, helping us to raise our performance in empowering those we serve.

Please contact Merylen Pearce via phone on 07706 355264 for an informal discussion about this role.

About us:

We provide not just shelter and housing but also the friendship of a church. Together with over 70 churches, Hope Into Action provide direct support to people whom others have often given up on. Our first home had a real heart for men coming out of prison, but homes are now available for a wide range of people experiencing homelessness: people in recovery from addiction, people sleeping rough, women and children fleeing domestic violence, people coming out of rehab, former prostitutes, refugees, those suffering mental health issues and survivors of human trafficking. 

We encourage others to use our model by franchising the idea. Our vision is for every church to lovingly provide the homeless with a home. The tragedy of homelessness is in every community. We believe that with our help, every church can do something about it.
