Working at Mel Trotter Ministries is about more than a job and a paycheck. It’s about making a difference in the lives of men, women, and children experiencing homelessness. It’s about meeting people where they’re at, walking alongside them with non-judgmental love and compassion, and giving hope to people who may have none. At Mel Trotter, we are all one team working together using our skills and abilities in whatever job we have to help rescue people in perhaps their darkest hour, and then help restore their lives by moving them out of homelessness into self-sufficiency. If you desire to use the talents God has given you to truly make a difference each and every day, then join our team. It may not be the easiest job you will ever have, but it just may be the most rewarding.
