2 people are interested
Have you recently graduated with a Social Worker degree? Help us answer our voicemail calls on weekends and rack up experience. Social Workers and virtual workers work from home and return phone calls regarding family caregiver's issues and/or provide guidance to the Arizona Caregiver Coalition's programs and other relevant resources.
Our Caregiver Advocate Volunteers are an important part of the Arizona Caregiver Coalition. Volunteers answer phone calls from family caregivers, seniors and parents with children with special needs and listen like a "good neighbor", and then we provide options and resources.
Previous family caregiver experience is not required. We provide a free orientation and training. After the completion of the training, we have a experienced Caregiver Advocate Volunteers sit with you on the phone until you're comfortable to be on your own.
About Arizona Caregiver Coalition
1717 W Jefferson St., PHOENIX, AZ 85007, US
The Arizona Caregiver Coalition works to improve the quality of life for family caregivers across Arizona through collaborative partnerships, advocacy, resources, and respite support.
The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is a community-based, 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. It was founded in 2014 to support and advocate for family caregivers in Arizona. We operate the statewide Caregiver Resource Line (888-737-7494) to answer questions and provide information. We also offer funding for respite, so that family caregivers can get a break. We partner with the Arizona Department of Economic Security, Area Agencies on Aging, and other community based organizations.
The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is an integral organization within the Arizona caregiver community. Over the course of 9 months (September 2021 through May 2022), The Arizona Caregiver Coalition will collaborate with AmeriCorps and local organizations to improve the quality of life for family caregivers throughout Arizona, and help develop a community where family caregivers thrive.
To ensure that members meet the necessary living expenses incurred while participating in the Arizona Caregiver Coalition AmeriCorps program, members are provided a modest living stipend. Members also receive ongoing professional development throughout the year. Fellows will be eligible for an AmeriCorps Segal Education Award upon successful completion of the service term in good standing with the service site (completing 450 hours of service for Quarter-time members). Most importantly, members gain valuable professional and personal experience and acquire skills in civic-engagement, teamwork and leadership during a year of service.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
