Changes are happening everywhere at Front Steps. We are changing our look, outlook and outcomes. The inside and outside of the building, including the sidewalks, are being restructured to create spaces that are fresher, safer, calmer and hope-filled for both clients and staff. One thing that hasn’t changed is our warm, diverse, compassionate and dedicated staff. We are building new teams of employees who are even more housing-focused, client-centered and trauma-informed. Together, we are ready to build new, faster and lasting paths to home for more adults experiencing homelessness. If working in a dynamic environment alongside skilled people who care appeals to you, consider applying for the positions listed below.

Benefits of Working at Front Steps
This poem by San Antonio poet Naomi Shihab Nye expresses the spirit of who we are and strive to be for and with others at Front Steps.
A man crosses the street in rain,
stepping gently, looking two times north and south,
because his son is asleep on his shoulder.
No car must splash him.
No car drive too near to his shadow.
This man carries the world’s most sensitive cargo
but he’s not marked.
Nowhere does his jacket say FRAGILE,
HANDLE WITH CARE.
His ear fills up with breathing.
He hears the hum of a boy’s dream
deep inside him.
We’re not going to be able
to live in this world
if we’re not willing to do what he’s doing
with one another.
The road will only be wide.
The rain will never stop falling.
