AmeriCorps is a national service movement that engages Americans of all ages and backgrounds in service to address the most critical problems in our nation’s communities in the areas of education, public safety, the environment, and other human needs.  In exchange for a specified term of service, AmeriCorps members earn a living allowance as well as an educational award to pay back qualified student loans or to finance college, graduate school or vocational training.

Members enrolled in our program connect individuals experiencing homelessness to community resources; provide essential furniture and household items for adults and families moving from shelter to permanent housing; mentor men moving through our recovery program; and, provide an intensive job-readiness program that will assist individuals with obtaining employment.
