Spanish Speaking volunteers needed- Volunteer with Union Settlement's Excluded Workers Fund
The Excluded Workers Fund was designed to distribute payments to workers who did not receive stimulus money or other COVID-19 aid from the federal government’s relief funds in 2020 and early 2021. Workers who are undocumented, lack stable housing, or subsist though the cash economy were ineligible for prior payments. Union Settlement has been working with the community to help individuals apply for payments through the fund.
Volunteers will assist individuals with filling out their online applications. We are looking for volunteers who are bilingual Spanish and English speakers.
We operate Monday- Friday from 9am-4pm and can accept volunteers in shifts, 9am-1pm and 1pm-4pm, with the afternoon shift being the busiest.
We require that all volunteers be vaccinated and show proof of vaccination upon arrival.
