Description: 

Craig's Doors emergency winter shelter provides warmth and safety to about 200 individuals from November 1st- May 1st. As a behavior based shelter, Craig's Doors does not discriminate against those suffering from drug or alcohol abuse, and ensures that everyone is treated with the same degree of respect and compassion no matter their background. So long as guests are behaving in a manner that respects the safety of themselves and others, everyone is able to find a home within the shelter doors. 

As an intern, you are able to gain experience in working with at risk populations and help foster a welcoming environment for everyone who walks through our doors. Interns are able to take on many roles, where we are currently searching for those to assist in the following activities: 

- Opening operations 

- Case management

- Overnight operations

- Administrative work 

- Marketing/ Fundraising
