Individuals that commit their time and skills to get things done for America.
The AmeriCorps Housing First Program utilizes members to provide services to the homeless and economically disadvantaged population in Upper East TN. The purpose of the AmeriCorps Housing First Program is to provide access points in every county we serve to provide the homeless with resources they so desperately need. AmeriCorps members work at one of our host sites in the community to utilize the HMIS (Homeless Management Information System) in order to find appropriate resources and assess vulnerability of clients.
What is AmeriCorps?
AmeriCorps engages more than 75,000 men and women in intensive service each year at more than 15,000 locations including non-profits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country.
What are the benefits?
AmeriCorps members are given a living allowance, health care, childcare (if applicable), and become eligible for the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award upon successful completion of the program. Additionally, ARCH offers many on and off-site training opportunities for its members; and members are encouraged to take advantage of the experience, support and resources of the ARCH staff and nonprofit community.
