Employee Position 

We are seeking a compassionate individual, steeped in their own Indigenous spiritual tradition, to offer spiritual care to Indigenous community members at all four of our inner-city outreach sites.

Position Title: Indigenous Spiritual Caregiver

Position Type: Permanent, ¾ time position (30 hours per week)

Salary: $46,000; pro-rated to $34,500 for ¾ time.

Position Start Date: December 1, 2017

Closing date for applications: November 3, 2017

About Us: 1JustCity is an organization that supports four outreach sites in Winnipeg’s core neighborhoods: West Broadway, the North End, the West End and Osborne Village.

Our services fulfill basic needs such as daily meals, food distribution, haircuts, showers, laundry, toiletries, and clean undergarments. But we also work to fulfill much deeper needs by providing safe communities of love and respect. We work to build a city where people who are alone can have a place to belong and be accepted, where people who are hurting can find support and healing, and where people who are struggling can be given the tools to build a better life.

Each of our four outreach sites serve those living with addictions, those without a place to call home, or those shunned by others based on race, income and sexual orientation. The need for our presence continues to grow, especially in these times of economic stress.

Our communities include many Indigenous people, many of whom experience brokenness and separation from their culture. We have identified a need to hire an Indigenous staff person who can offer a consistent presence at each of our four outreach sites; providing opportunities for healing for Indigenous people who are hurting.

The Position: The Indigenous Spiritual Caregiver will offer a caring presence at each of our four outreach sites. They will design and facilitate programs to promote healing for Indigenous and community members; potentially including (but not limited to) sharing circles and trips offsite to participate in Indigenous ceremonial events such as pow-wows and sweat lodges. This person will also be tasked to build compassionate relationships with Indigenous community members; offering support and connecting individuals with other resources as necessary.

Organizational Relationship: Reports to the 1JustCity Executive.
