Help Us With Our Congregate Sites
We are looking for several congregate hosts to manage our sites throughout the week. If you live in Buckeye Lake, Pataskala, Utica, or Johnstown and would be interested in having a very part-time job, please submit your application at or come into our office to apply. Position would work remotely at site and could expect to work 10-15 hours/week helping distribute meals and coordinate activities for those attending. Join our team!
