Job Description

CityTeam is a Christian non-profit dedicated to supporting communities by meeting immediate needs and enabling lasting solutions for those struggling with poverty, homelessness, and addiction. Being part of CityTeam is not just a career but also a calling. Whether we’re working on the front lines in Programs or working behind the scenes in Support Services, we feel privileged to use our education, experience, and gifts to love people and bring glory to God.


The Program Coordinator will be a key member of our growing Women’s Ministry at CityTeam Chester. The Program Coordinator will be responsible for facilitating and supporting the social, physical, and spiritual adjustment of the residents to the Turning Point community, as well as acting as a liaison between the residents and Program Manager. This is a brand new program with limited staffing, so our Program Coordinator must be willing to live onsite for the first year. Our programs will serve single women and women with young children in crisis. Our Program Coordinator must be adept at building relationships with people from a variety of backgrounds, including those that are poor, displaced, and exiting the foster care system. The Program Coordinator will serve as a positive role model to the residents of our program, so we are looking for someone who has both a passion for helping women in crisis and the heart of a Servant Leader. We need a woman actively living out her life with God and able to guide others as they explore what life with God can look like. Our ideal candidate will have experience with residential programs and desire to press into the social services aspects of a holistic program that meets immediate needs and provides lasting solutions.


The Program Coordinator is a full-time non-exempt position. Beyond salary, CityTeam offers a great benefit package, including but not limited to Medical, Dental, and Vision insurance, Paid Vacation, Paid Holidays, Paid Sick Leave, and Retirement Benefits. All of this is wrapped up in a Christian environment that values Teamwork, Accountability, Humility, Innovation, and Joy.
