Join our team!
At The People Concern, we are on a mission to end human suffering.
Our work directly impacts the lives of thousands of people annually and brings us one step closer to securing a future where no one has to live outside or in a violent household.
At The People Concern, we believe everyone should be housed, healthy and safe. Because being vaccinated reduces the risk of being infected with COVID-19, and generally minimizes the risk of severe symptoms or hospitalization, effective October 1, 2021, we will implement a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy as a condition of employment for all employees who work for the agency, or require proof of eligibility of an exemption from this requirement due to a medical condition or sincerely-held religious belief, subject to applicable federal, state, and local laws. For more information, please contact HR@thepeopleconcern.org.
