Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Community Lodgings Inc. (CLI) was founded in 1987 by Alexandria churches with a mission to lift families from homelessness and instability, empowering them to self-sufficiency. We provide affordable housing, transitional housing and education for adults and children. We provide comprehensive services for at-risk families and children under one roof. Our programs are designed to invoke true "institutional change" one child, adult and family at a time.
The Learning Center, as the major neighborhood resource for everything from computer use to education to translation of English forms, provides services to over 200 adults, youth and children every year. Our goals for our Family Education programs in 2007 are: 1) to see 100% of our students improve in basic SOL skills, thereby raising their self-esteem and self-confidence; 2) to provide a more structured middle school program focused on positive behavior, non-violence and community service, training them as volunteers and mentors to the younger students; 3) increase ESL classes offered to adults and see 75% of participants move onto better jobs. Adults who completed classes in 2006 have enrolled again for classes that began in January. Both Computer Literacy and ESL classes provide the opportunity to develop job skills that local employers require. The Learning Center also provides job search help for residents not participating in our programs.
