Job Description:

Utica Public Housing AmeriCorps Program

The Public Housing AmeriCorps Program help veterans (particularly those with opioid, mental health, and substance abuse issues) achieve economic and housing stability; assist youth, disabled, immigrants, and the long-term unemployed to enter the workforce; improve financial literacy of low-income residents; and place the homeless and housing vulnerable in quality, affordable housing in Utica and Oneida, Herkimer, & Madison Counties, New York. Our evidence-informed Comprehensive Community-Based Case Management Model (CCBCM) provides wrap round coordinated services that address the root causes of poverty, instead of merely responding to immediate crises. The theory of change which undergirds our program is that by devoting AmeriCorps (AC) members and community resources to comprehensive and integrated services, such as those provided by case management, barriers to long-term self-sufficiency for clients in need can be removed. The program seeks to build leadership skills and empower clients to advocate for themselves. AmeriCorps members are placed at public housing sites, Upstate Cerebral Palsy, and area agencies. AmeriCorps members devote a year of their lives to make a difference in the community. Approximately 75,000 Americans of all ages participate in AmeriCorps each year. In the UMHA program, AmeriCorps members help people get out of poverty through job and career training, homeless and housing assistance, and teaching money management skills. The program also help disabled youths learn independent living skills and prepare for careers. Other members help veterans and immigrants/refugees connect to available resources. The program offers professional training, mentoring, and an opportunity to obtain hands-on experience in the helping professions. AmeriCorps is ideal for recent college graduates, retirees, and people interested in gaining job experience. Further help on this page can be found by clicking here.
