Recruiting Part-Time and Full-Time AmeriCorps Members: Accessing Home
ONE Neighborhood Builders in Partnership with the Housing Network of Rhode Island, seeks 20 outstanding, dedicated individuals to provide a year of service with AmeriCorps as part of the Accessing Home Program. Members will develop and implement a resident self-sufficiency program designed to 1) support low and moderate income families to effectively and efficiently move off of affordable housing waitlists into high quality affordable rental housing, 2) reduce evictions among existing tenants and 3) build assets to increase economic stability. Members will work from an empowerment model, supporting the self-actualization of residents, providing a framework for residents to work towards self-sufficiency, and recognizing and addressing the strengths and limitations of each participating family. Applications will be accepted through Friday, August 5th, 2016 or until the service position is filled.
Income tax program: Every year we serve as a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site from January through the tax deadline of April 15. Through the VITA program, volunteers prepare tax returns for local taxpayers in need of assistance. Volunteer tax preparers must be IRS certified – however, free training is available! We also need intake volunteers for the tax program to greet clients and help them fill out the intake forms. College students can get internship credit for being a tax preparer. Please contact Silvia Acevedo for inquiries by email or at 401-351-8719 x 105.
