Our AmeriCorps members serve 1700 hours over a one-year term with different housing nonprofits throughout Kentucky. The AmeriCorps members serving with Lexington Rescue Mission will work with individuals at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Service activities will help those individuals move into safe, decent, affordable rental housing. To do that, members will assist with finding rental housing that meets the needs of the clients, work with landlords to negotiate leases and move-in dates, coordinate rental payment, help clients acquire household items, and continue ongoing case management after the client is housed.
