Each member is responsible for recruiting and managing volunteers, participating actively in building the capacity of the host agency and for ensuring that each client they interact with has a better understanding of the foreclosure process. All positions will begin on October 3, 2014.
AmeriCorps members receive a modest living allowance, health benefits, child care benefits (if eligible), extensive training opportunities, federal student loan forbearance and interest repayment and a $5,625 education award upon completion of service.
