Welcome to the page for Michigan's Campaign to End Homelessness AmeriCorps Program! We are an AmeriCorps*State program that has been in existence since 2008, with the first members beginning service in January 2009. The program is based on Lansing; however, our members serve in communities across the entire state of Michigan.
Members serving in our program can be full-time (1700 hours) or half-time (900 hours). Service is focused on the areas below:
OUTREACH -- Identifying homeless or at-risk individuals in need
HOUSING ASSISTANCE -- Assessing barriers to housing and providing direct assistance in securing safe, affordable housing
RESOURCE NETWORKING -- Connecting consumers to the mainstream benefits they may be eligible for
FOLLOW-UP SUPPORT -- Lending support to those who have been stably and safely housed
VOLUNTEER GENERATION -- Recruiting volunteers for the host agency or volunteer driven events, like Project Homeless Connect.
CIVIC ENGAGEMENT -- Developing community service projects, participating in AmeriCorps sponsored service times, actively participating in their local community
