Do you think everyone deserves a home?

Are you skilled at working with people, even those with challenging behaviors?

If so, working on call at DESC may be for you!

DESC's shelters provide vital survival services to Seattle's most vulnerable adults experiencing homelessness.

Our Permanent Supportive Housing program provides apartments with 24/7 staff support to formerly homeless adults with disabilities.

On call counselors work variable shifts, according to their schedule preferences and program need, to facilitate operations and provide essential client services in both programs.

In the changing and uncertain job market, this position allows compassionate and dedicated people a chance to earn an income on a short term basis, with opportunity for ongoing employment. Who knows, maybe you’ll even end up finding a new career!

We will hold in person hiring fairs with interviews on Friday, March 20th & Friday, March 27th. Qualified applicants will be contacted with details.
