Working at the YWCA is both rewarding and challenging. We always seek highly-motivated, dedicated and experienced team members to move the organization and its mission forward.
The YWCA’s programs focus on domestic violence and sexual assault [DV/SA] services, women’s health advocacy, year-round child care, other youth services and housing. The YWCA Women’s Emergency Shelter is a haven for victims of domestic violence and their children. Full-time court advocates work in the Lawrence and Haverhill District Courts. The YWCA offers individual and group counseling for DV survivors in Lawrence and Haverhill. The YWCA North Shore Rape Crisis Center serves all of the North Shore. At Fina House, in Lawrence, the YWCA operates a transitional housing program for survivors of domestic violence and a residential Teen Parenting Program. Since 1995, the YWCA has offered housing for low-income residents in Lawrence, and in 2017, the newly renovated Haverhill Residence will re-open.
The YWCA has grown from a small, grass-roots organization focused on aiding women new to either the country or to Lawrence, into a vibrant, active community resource with an annual budget exceeding $6 million. We currently have a staff of over 100 employees working in full-time and part-time year-round positions, plus seasonal jobs in our out-of-school programs and at our summer day camp. The YWCA has seven different site locations with four sites in Lawrence and one site each in Haverhill, Lynn and Salem, NH.
Please note that the job opportunities listed below are for any and/or all of our site locations – with the job location shown at the end of the job title.
