I will be leaving Well House sometime this month. An opportunity came up for me to live in a collaborative community with my friends who just purchased a home, so I will be moving a few blocks away from Well House.
My position at Well House will be opening this month. I will post more about it later, but for now, here is a description:
Live-in House manager:
Some duties include-- managing household tasks such as meal planning, partnering with residents to complete daily chores, planning workshops/household meetings, meeting regularly with staff and volunteers, helping with grounds work (gardens, etc).
Room and board (meals, wireless internet/phone/computer/phone (long distance) access, use of pottery/art barn, etc) are included with the work.
I was in school for a semester while i lived at Well House. When i finished the term, I continued to work part-time and stay connected to the larger community (my work in Heartside). I would recommend this position if you work part-time or are going to school part or full (maybe not 18 credits full).
This is a great opportunity to learn about living sustainably (Well House composts/recycles and teaches residents how to conserve energy and resources).
Well House is currently an emergency shelter for women and families. We are in the process of transitioning into a permanent supportive community for people experiencing homelessness or who would otherwise be homeless. For more information about Well House in general:
