ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: The Service Collaborative

Through placement at essential Western New York nonprofits, AmeriCorps Economic Opportunity Corps (EOC) members serve to improve community members’ financial resiliency, stability, and wellness. As WNY begins our economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, your service, in areas such as housing security and affordability, free legal services, access to supportive services and benefits, college readiness, and health equity, will provide vital aid in helping our region build back better. Members join EOC from all backgrounds, and the most important characteristic our members have is a passion for assisting others as we work together towards the main AmeriCorps mission of eliminating poverty. In service with EOC, you will be making a lifelong impact in peoples’ lives for decades and generations to come. National service has never been more vital to our local community, so please apply today!


Founded in 1977, Belmont Housing Resources for WNY is the leading advocate for quality affordable housing in Western New York. We operate the largest and most diversified HUD-Certified Housing & Financial Counseling Program in Erie County which helps low to moderate income households develop assets and financial capabilities, creating economically stable homeowners and renters. The EOC member will serve as a Financial Educator and Coach and will be focusing on building families’ financial capabilities for long term stability and self-sufficiency. This will be accomplished through group education on topics such as Credit, Budgeting/Saving, and Renters Rights and Responsibilities. The EOC Member will also be responsible for referrals and linkages to income supports which will include free tax preparation.
