8 people are interested
Angelica Village is looking for a lead volunteer coordinator who is interested in doing community outreach and collaboration to bring in much-needed hygiene, cleaning and baby supply items into the community.
You will be responsible to maintain contact with individuals and organizations who are looking to donate any goods that fall into personal hygiene & household cleaning supplies. This may include but is not limited to paper towels, cleaning supplies, shampoo, conditioner, soaps, baby items, and anything else you see fit!
You will be responsible to reach out to local agencies, schools, and private donors who may be interested in donating and/or hosting community drives to bring in donations. Once donations are received, you will sort through the items and organize them in the donation closest. If you feel that we have too much of an item, it will be up to your discretion to reach out to others who may be in need to gift our items.
You will work closely with the food pantry coordinator as to not duplicate and confuse outreach efforts.
As the Hygiene, Baby, and Cleaning Supplies Coordinator you will be the first of their kind here at Angelica Village. We invite you to bring your personal experiences that may better help build and sustain this program so that we are better able to serve our community. This will require organization skills, interpersonal skills, and knowledge about program development and implementation.
We look forward to having you join our community at Angelica Village!
About ANGELICA VILLAGE
5455 W VIRGINIA AVE, LAKEWOOD, CO 80226, US
Through love, care, and sustained mutual support, Angelica Village nurtures conscious community living spaces where people with special abilities, families seeking refuge from war and violence, individuals and families experiencing homelessness, and fellow community partners receive what they need and share what they can.
Children and Youth Seeking Refuge from War: Youth are welcomed into the community as long-term community members and as the 'adoptive’ children of partners responsible for their direct care. Children grow up in the community until they are ready to transition fully into adulthood. Children will be supported socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically, as well as with education and generally adjusting to life in the United States. Once children have moved out of the direct proximity of the home they will continue to have the community as an extended family for their future.
Unaccompanied Youth and Families Exiting Homelessness: The community provides a place of refuge and support for three to five individuals and/or families whose circumstances have put them out on the street. This aspect is aimed at individuals who are wanting to engage in a larger community and parents who are working to create a stable environment for their children and are seeking support and guidance in their efforts. Households live in the immediate community for eleven months to two years. During this time, they are provided with comprehensive support including food, shelter, a therapeutic environment, emotional support, childcare, financial support, help finding employment, educational support and assistance finding and furnishing a permanent home. Once families resettle in a new home, they will remain integrated and supported by the community for as long as they desire.
