The Economy Shop is a consignment shop located in Oak Park, IL whose sales benefit local nonprofits. Part of Housing Forward's partnership with the Economy Shop requires volunteers to help prepare and run the Women's Better Clothing room inside of the building.
We are currently looking for one volunteer to be our "Room Chair", or liaison between Housing Forward and the Economy Shop.
Duties might include:
Managing/scheduling other volunteers
Hanging and organizing clothes
Tagging items for sale
Assisting and checking out customers on Sale Days

Housing Forward's mission is to transition people from housing crisis to housing stability.
Since 1992, we have transformed the lives of more than 11,000 people by helping them meet their immediate housing and crisis needs, addressing their health and income needs and transitioning them back to housing stability. Today, we’re having long-term impact on the communities of west suburban Cook County by 1.) preventing the loss of housing before it occurs, 2.) alleviating the need for long-term shelter, 3.) moving people into sustainable permanent housing solutions and 4.) improving housing retention.

After visiting the site, the Room Chair can help decide how frequently volunteers should visit the site for maintenance. Sale days occur 3-4 days a month and would require the presence of the Room Chair as well.
