About the job

Help CloseKnit with critical HR questions over the course of 4 weeks, in areas like hiring, compensation & benefits, HR policy, performance management, and workplace culture.

Our Mission

Our Vision

We see all youth facing homelessness as already loved, especially youth from underestimated and under-resourced communities.

Our Mission

CloseKnit catalyzes system change, building a holistic response that overcomes racism to honor and invest in existing "chosen family" arrangements that prevent youth homelessness.

Fun Fact About Us

Our founder, Jacqueline, started CloseKnit after first hosting and later adopting a young woman facing homelessness. Amy is now married, and she and her wife are foster care parents to 5 siblings, which means Jacqueline gets to be a foster grandma!
