FIRN, Inc: Resources for the Foreign-born

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested
FIRN logo

During the pandemic, FIRN has had an influx of clients needing services. This resulted because of greater financial stress because of loss of income, and having difficulty dealing with online systems now that everything is remote. To better serve clients we are starting a Navigator program where we train volunteers to help us provide more services to clients. We are looking for bilingual volunteers (especially Spanish-speakers) that are able to commit to at least 6 months with an average of 1 hour a week. Everything will be 100% remote. Please help us to better serve the community!
