Position: Community Safety Host
Fearless R2W & Persons Community Solutions Ltd. has partnered to create the Community Safety Hosts Initiative; an alternative role to provide services in facilities that provide systems access (i.e. Public Libraries, Access Centres, etc).
Employed as Security Guards by PCS, a Community Safety Host is differentiated by an additional 130+ hours of in-class training backed by 3 months of supported practical field experience.
This role uses a trauma informed, harm reduced approach to welcoming people seeking support into critical facilities by removing barriers, providing warm handoffs and system navigation support. Safety hosts work in person, usually full time (35-40 hours per week) and are paid a minimum of a living wage. We encourage persons with lived experience to apply.
You will leverage this experience, empowered with additional training, local area knowledge, a trauma informed & harm reduction lens and understanding of available resources.
