The mission of Bernadette McCann House is to work for change that will end abuse by providing safety, support and education to all those who experience abuse. Our services include an emergency residential program for women and children, community outreach, support services for children, groups and workshops.

We are currently recruiting for two supervisory positions: an Outreach Supervisor and a Residential Superior. As part of a new dynamic structure, the organization is reconfiguring its structure to respond to the every changing needs of the sector and to be more inclusive to all members of the County.

Through provision of education, prevention and awareness information, it is anticipated those who access services will have a better understanding regarding domestic violence.

You have refined interpersonal, oral and written communication skills, a well-developed database systems application and a thorough understanding of the issues of violence against women and children and other related services.
