AmeriCorps EOC: Evergreen Health Services - Housing Stabilization Specialist

Save to Favorites

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!

Evergreen is a comprehensive health care delivery system that provides medical, supportive and behavioral health services to individuals and families in Western NY- especially those who are living with a chronic illness or who are under served by the health care system. The EOC member would be working alongside the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) Housing Team. The MRT Housing Team works with people who are living with chronic health conditions and who are experiencing homelessness. The team works towards assisting underserved individuals with finding and maintaining safe & affordable housing, while ensuring their mental and physical health needs are also being addressed. Due to the high-need patients served in our program, we often come across many who have no or very limited income while trying to navigate the housing market. The EOC member would specifically be trained in housing navigation services and SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) programming.

Member Benefits:

  • Start and End Date: 10/03/2022 - 09/03/2023
