The John Howard Society of Red Deer is a nonprofit organization working to promote community harmony through the advocation of human dignity and social justice.
We support and serve those involved in the justice system through a restorative process and believe in treating every person with fairness, dignity and compassion while holding each person accountable for their own behavior.
Horizon House is a community residential facility (CRF) that provides housing, support and supervision to federal offenders (male and female) upon their conditional release to the community.

The successful candidate will be a team player who displays strong professional boundaries. They will feel comfortable interacting with offenders convicted of a wide range of offenses, and will possess excellent written and verbal communication skills.
