Application for Women's Shelter Worker

Dear Hiring Manager,

As a Shelter Worker with 4 years of experience working in emergency and domestic shelters and transitional housing, I apply with great interest for this opportunity. 

I am currently a Shelter Coordinator at Halliwell Women’s Shelter, where I register new clients, issue photo IDs, explain shelter rules & policies, provide linen, store personal items, and do everything I can to help clients settle into our 25-bed facility. I perform daily check-ins and check-outs in the system, escort clients to health or services appointments, and conduct random walk-throughs to ensure everyone is safe and following the rules. I also participate in case reviews as needed.

This builds upon my time as Homeless Shelter Coordinator at Sunnybank Community Services, and my post-graduate traineeship at Pelican Heights Transitional Center. These roles have helped me to develop strong communication, interpersonal, and listening skills, alongside the ability to engage with empathy, seek practical solutions to highly personal problems, and defuse tense situations.

In addition to my experience, I hold a Bachelor of Social Work. My passion for supporting women in crisis stems from my Aunt Maria who, following the violent death of my uncle when I was a child, fell into alcoholism, lost her license to practice medicine, and ended up on the streets despite family efforts to help with limited local resources. She has powerfully shaped my perception of those affected by homelessness, domestic violence, and mental health.

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Marc Parker
