AmeriCorps Construction Crew Leader:
AmeriCorps members are essential in helping our affiliate’s construction program build to capacity. Members serving in this role will be part of the team that will give the necessary boost to significantly increase the number of families our affiliate is able to serve through our Home Repairs (HR) and new construction projects. Our affiliate takes an average of 4 months to build new homes and 3-5 weeks for home repairs depending on how extensive the repairs are. With the assistance of the AmeriCorps members serving in this role, we anticipate completing 4 new builds and 30 Home Repair projects, with a projected total of 42 families served. We also anticipate at least 1 community event to occur which will utilize members to spread the word about our home repair program and encourage community members to get involved as volunteers on our worksites or to apply to be family partners. In addition, a secondary goal of this position is for the AmeriCorps member to identify, train and support some of the Regular Volunteers to serve as additional Crew Leaders for volunteers at our new build sites and home repair projects. We view the Construction Crew Leaders as integral to our goals of building more homes and better neighborhoods and communities throughout our service area. To view full job description click here.
AmeriCorps Family Services Coordinator:
The AmeriCorps Family Services Coordinator will be instrumental in helping HFHGS to continue to expand its community outreach in an effort to find qualified families for our homeownership programs. We are continuing to build roughly eight homes a year, and we are working to build our Home Repair Program, necessitating additional assistance in the Homeowner Services Department with outreach, the selection process, and maintaining strong relationships with our partner families. After our AmeriCorps Family Services Coordinator departs, the relationships formed by his or her outreach efforts will continue to result in increased knowledge about our homeownership and home repair opportunities, increased attendance at our orientation meetings, and increased volume of applicants.

AmeriCorps Volunteer Services Coordinator:
We partner with families to open doors together – whether building a house, repairing a roof, or leveraging our capabilities to provide a hand up to a neighborhood block. Our affiliate is performing at our highest level to date with over 30,000 volunteers hosted, 146 homes built, over 40 homes repaired, and most importantly, over 200 partner families served. Volunteers provide the hearts, hands and voices to complete our ambitious build schedule. The Volunteer Services Coordinator will be performing four main functions. First, s/he will ensure there are enough volunteers and supervision from the Crew Leaders for each build day. Second, s/he will help to sustain and grow the volunteer department by establishing relationships with individual volunteers and assisting them in signing up for jobsite and ReStore volunteer slots through CERVIS, the Affiliate’s volunteer management database, as well as assisting as needed with our group volunteer events and team building program. As part of volunteer recruitment, the member will schedule, manage and lead Habitours as a form of orienting and engaging potential volunteers. The member will collect detailed information on who is and who is not volunteering, entering this statistical data into the Raiser’s Edge database. This helps the affiliate to cultivate relationships with volunteers, as well as apply for
additional funding. Third s/he will be in charge of managing our Crew Leader program; cultivating current crew leaders, recruiting new crew leaders, and ensuring existing crew leaders engage in ongoing training and are fully equipped to lead other volunteers in all aspects of home construction. Finally, the member will be responsible for managing and training office volunteers, who assist with database management and other clerical duties. To view full job description click here.
