Description

Job Summary: The Road Home is seeking a highly motivated individual who is committed, compassionate, willing to be challenged, and who wants to make a difference in the lives of others. Reporting to the Program Improvement Specialist, the Guest Services Advocate is responsible for ensuring the timely and accurate dispersal of mail for our guests at the Men’s Resource Center, and for the upkeep and organization of our guest storage area. The Guest Services Advocate will sort through the mail received at our facility daily, collaborating with a variety of departments to ensure internal mail is connected to the appropriate employee quickly.
