Why work at Swords

Michael, the board, and staff care deeply about the well-being of our clients and their colleagues. Swords upholds our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Working at a community-based nonprofit that serves primarily homeless individuals requires compassion. Serving those who served requires dedication. When you join our team, you become part of a mission that is driven by the compassionate and dedicated people who work here.
