The Lazarus Center provides a warm, safe, hospitable place with a community atmosphere for homeless and marginally housed men and women age 50 and older. On an average day, 250 individuals come through our doors seeking food and shelter. We offer overnight shelter for 49 men and women. The center is open 365 days a year 24 hours per day. As a result of their age and living conditions, the majority of our guests suffer from mental and physical disabilities. The Center opened in July 1990 to serve this special population of elderly people who are vulnerable to the weather, street predators, and illness.
This position plays a critical role in providing nutritious meals for homeless and low-income men and women. The Food Services Coordinator (Cook) is responsible for the oversight of the health, sanitation and inventory of the Lazarus meals program. They oversee the daily operation of the meals program, in cooperation with the Lazarus Supervisor.
