Make it your job to prevent homelessness and help families thrive

The high cost of housing in Massachusetts leaves many families rent-burdened. Without more affordable options for housing or prospects for higher wage jobs, families with low incomes may eventually find themselves without safe, permanent housing. These families join the more than 12,000 children and parents already residing in Massachusetts homeless shelters, in addition to the innumerable families living on couches, in cars, or other emergency housing options.

As a One Family Coach, you'll work to break down barriers to education and career access for parents, helping them achieve financial independence and housing stability.

​Breaking barriers to education and career access

As a One Family Coach, you’ll prevent family homelessness by helping parents increase their incomes and achieve economic and housing stability for themselves and their families. You’ll foster close relationships with parents and support their journey to identify, set, and reach important goals on the way to achieving their vision of success. You’ll earn a competitive salary and benefits as you serve as a positive and encouraging advocate, and introduce the key tools and knowledge that can help people to be their best and achieve their dreams.

Who makes a good coach?

As a coach, your achievements are viewed through the successes of others. You’ll be a great coach if you’re invested in the success of the parents we serve, and are able to draw from your own personal and professional experiences to inspire others. This doesn’t require that you have held big titles before, but it can be helpful to have overcome obstacles in your own life and to have achieved success in life and career as defined by you. We’ll be most interested in your application if you can demonstrate a commitment to families experiencing homelessness and a commitment to racial, economic, and social justice.
