- Application Deadline: September 27, 2022 -

 

The My Sisters’ Place drop-in program fosters a vibrant community of women who are experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness, promoting a welcoming and non-judgmental culture and providing a reprieve from the stigma women so often feel in other community settings. Our team supports women with anything they might need - from a hot meal to tampons, from access to showers and laundry facilities to harm reduction kits and from on-site mental health and addictions groups to connections with broader community supports.

Successful candidates must have a Police Vulnerable Sector Check completed in the last six months. Interested applicants who reside in the City of London and are in need of a Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) are encouraged to apply for one as soon as possible as PVSCs are currently taking approximately 2 weeks to be delivered and offers of employment cannot be made without receipt of a PVSC.
