  • Part Time Researcher

    Rosie's Place is seeking a part time Researcher. The Researcher will complete work to investigate and report on the results to two questions: •Is there any model of a primarily direct service agency which created and led a broad policy campaign for which it did not directly benefit? This would exclude the model of City Year for example, which lobbies for national service dollars but directly benefits from their appropriation. • Is there a national association that Rosie’s Place could join and help lead one of its policy campaigns? Since Rosie’s Place guests are affected by so many concerns, the association could be one having to do with poverty, housing, addiction, mental illness, women’s issues, homelessness or more. The Researcher will work with the Rosie’s Place’s President, staff and others to compile an initial list of contacts, including organizations such as the National Alliance for the Homeless, CLASP, the Children’s Defense Fund and others.

  • Director Of Legal Programs

    OBJECTIVE: Starting in 2014, the legal program has been part of Rosie’s Place’s core services. Each week, the program hosts free walk-in clinics regarding CORI, housing law, immigration law, family law, and consumer debt. Our program is unique from other legal services because we do not screen women based on income, need, household size, etc. If women have a legal issue, they are able to directly speak with an attorney. In addition to our legal clinics, the program is responsible for developing and hosting Know-Your-Rights presentations on a variety of legal topics for advocates and guests. We believe in providing our services in a holistic and nonjudgmental manner and often collaborate with other internal programs to ensure that guests’ needs are met in other areas including emergency services, advocacy, and mental health counseling.
