Bringing Justice Home Volunteer Job Description

Reports to Volunteer Coordinator

Mission: Bringing Justice Home is a Louisville nonprofit that fosters health and wellness for people experiencing poverty, food insecurity, and chronic health

conditions through the delivery of food and household supplies, and by facilitating access to needed services, and offering social support, while seeking to engage the community in the work of justice through education, sharing resources, and building just relationships. Volunteers are the face of our organization and at the heart of all that we do and are.

Summary: Volunteers with Bringing Justice Home will perform a variety of tasks in assistance to the primary mission of shopping for and delivering groceries and household supplies to neighbors* with special needs. Volunteering with Bringing Justice Home assumes a willingness to reach out to those unlike ourselves in a nonjudgmental, compassionate way.

*Bringing Justice Home uses the word neighbor to refer to the people we serve, denoting that we are all equals.

  • Shopping for and assembling one-time welcome bags
  • Making a monthly shopping trip and delivery to one or more neighbors
    • Currently, shopping trips consist of doing a Kroger pickup order arranged by a board member. The volunteer will pick up the order at a designated date and time and deliver it to the neighbor.
  • Volunteers are expected to wear masks, socially distance, and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer when doing shopping trips
  • All grocery deliveries will be as contact-free as possible, although some neighbors do sometimes need assistance carrying their groceries inside. The volunteer coordinator knows who these neighbors are, so if the volunteer is uncomfortable with having to go indoors, that is completely understandable, and we will give you another assignment. If volunteers feel comfortable entering a neighbor’s home, everyone wears masks, and the delivery is completed as quickly as possible.
  • Developing a personal connection with neighbor, as possible during COVID
  • Using active listening skills to support neighbor
  • Bringing any voiced or observed needs back to Bringing Justice Home Director for review
  • Filling out a post-delivery report on your visit

Requirements

  • Must have own transportation for shopping and/or delivery
  • Must have access to phone and computer/internet for communication, shopping lists, etc.
  • Must be able to lift bags or boxes of groceries and supplies and climb steps at homes/apartments.
  • Must be willing to serve those unlike ourselves without judgment.
  • Must have a heart for helping those who are struggling with food insecurity due to unemployment, age, illness, disability and other reasons.
  • Must be willing to serve one neighbor monthly (shopping and delivery approximately four hours per month). May serve more if desired.
  • Must maintain confidentiality (can share stories but not names, addresses, or other specifics).

Training

Training will consist of a video meeting with the Director and/or Board Members to review details of the job. This will include a review of our non-discrimination policy, mission and vision, as well as job duties. There will also be a series of online modules to complete. Director and board are always available for questions and support.

Time Commitment

  • Once a month for approximately four hours per neighbor served.
  • Approximately 30 minutes per online training module; there are four modules total. Volunteers may complete the first module in order to get started more quickly, and then they will have 30 days to complete the rest of them.

Please note: We will require two references and will do a background check to ensure the safety of all involved.

Job Description

ABOUT US

Heart 2 Heart Wellness Center is an inviting warm private practice with a holistic wellness approach to self-care. At H2H you will find mental health wellness, therapeutic yoga, healing touch massage and meditation classes to nurture wellbeing in the body, mind and spirit. The culture and environment at H2H is healthy, happy and relaxing with dedicated practitioners looking to help our clients move towards their best self and achieve personal goals. We are removing the stigma from mental health wellness and instead speaking a language of self-care. If this aligns with your style of practice, we look forward to you joining our team! H2H is located in New Albany, IN.

JOB DESCRIPTION

This position is entirely remote and services will be provided via telehealth. H2H is looking for Indiana (IN) licensed mental health therapists (LCSW or LPCC) that are skilled at working with adults and children in an outpatient setting. You will have the unique opportunity to build your reputation as a therapist and case load to suit your personal clinical style, with the room and flexibility to grow as desired.

We value ensuring that our clients have a healthy and enjoyable clinical experience, but it is equally important that our therapists do too! A good fit at H2H will be a self-directed therapist who has ideas and passions that they want to see come to fruition and just needs the support and resources to do so. This is not just your typical stuffy, dark, outpatient office. H2H is a vibrant, energy filled space that needs engaging therapists that bring their knowledge and personality to their practice. Therapists must be willing to think outside of the box to meet client needs, work well with minimal supervision, and be a self-starter. Previous private practice experience is highly valued, as you will already be paneled with insurance companies, however it is not required. H2H will provide you with the clinical resources, marketing materials and support to build your clientele and fulfill your clinical passions as they align with holistic mental health wellness.

COMPENSATION

Current compensation will follow a private practice model and be based on the independently licensed therapists’ ability to bill insurance or accept other payment methods. Additional opportunities for compensation are available and based on additional services the clinician is able to provide and/or desire for additional integration into the clinical practice.

Job Types: Part-Time, Full-time, Contract

Salary: $50.00 to $100.00 /hour
