Our AmeriCorps members serve 1700 hours over a one-year term with different housing nonprofits throughout Kentucky. AmeriCorps members with Gateway Homeless Coalition work with individuals experiencing homelessness. Specifically, the members will focus on providing services related to housing, including but not limited to: housing searches and placement, assisting with housing applications, budget and financial counseling, employment searches, and connecting clients to public benefits. Members will also help link clients to other needed services, such as mental and physical health, legal assistance, transportation, clothing, furniture, and household items. Members ultimately serve in the roles of case manager, budget counselor, advocate, and support network for their clients.
