Willis Dady Homeless Services, Engagement, IAMNCC
 
 
 
Willis Dady’s mission and vision are to provide emergency shelter and prevention services while empowering our clients to break the cycle of homelessness. The Willis Dady Engagement VISTA project will further develop our organization’s connection to the larger community through gathering stories and creating outward facing content and presentations. Ultimately this work will improve our service to individuals experiencing homelessness by expanding our ability to educate the public, apply for funding for our various needs, build programs, and advocate for affordable housing. The Engagement Coordinator will help Willis Dady through solidifying a training for future members in this position, conducting research on homelessness, and creating outward facing content from client interviews. Examples of what this content may be are photos, video, audio, and written materials. This position will require interaction with clients, project management, video/audio editing, and social media proficiency. Our Development Coordinator will be a resource and mentor for you in supervision, planning this project, using software, growing your content creation skills, and in best practices for research and sharing client stories.
