Program Director

Magdalena House is a transitional home in San Antonio that serves mothers and their children who have fled dangerous and abusive lives by providing transformation through education, nurturing community and programming. We provide a free, safe transitional home and loving community for those affected by family violence and human trafficking, mothers who have aged out of foster care, and those working with CPS, as well as mothers facing homelessness. Families’ needs are addressed and met, including unique programing designed to foster self-awareness and confidence. Vocational and career assistance beginning with education, training, and job readiness are key ingredients. Mothers are required to attend school by taking college, high school, GED or English classes and work with parenting coaches. Through these and other enrichment courses and events, mothers develop the social, educational, parental and financial skills needed to ensure their families’ the physical, economic, and spiritual well-being. We are in an exciting stage of growth, expanding our unique, five-acre property into a neighborhood of 7 homes. We are currently constructing 2 additional homes and a Family Wellness Center, tripling our capacity in early 2018.

We are seeking a creative self-starter to serve as a fulltime Program Director. Primary responsibilities include operational management of our Magdalena House (MH) program; ongoing evaluation of underlying theory and praxis; and supervision and development of program staff. The successful candidate will grow and further develop a proven program. They partner with the Executive Director and collaborate with our management team. The objective is to provide an environment of empowerment and transformation for hurting families, allowing them to heal, achieve goals and become self-sufficient. This position reports to the Executive Director.
