ShareCorps-Make-A-Day Fdn-Communications Coordinator
The Make-A-Day Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on advocacy and outreach to Columbus’ homeless, marginalized populations. Since its founding, this outreach has occurred at block-party style Pop-Up events. In the Spring of 2021, the Make-A-Day Foundation is launching a new mobile "Community Appreciation & Opportunity Team" (CAOT) outreach program. By taking their outreach on the road, Make-A-Day will meet people where they live and where they are in life’s journey. Make-A-Day outreach provides opportunities for homeless guests to build personal relationships with other community members. By connecting guests to community volunteers, providing made-to-order meals from gourmet food trucks, and offering professional haircuts, shampoos, styling and shaves, Make-A-Day creates an equalizing space for marginalized people to connect to caring members of their community. To assist homeless guests with ongoing challenges, the Make-A-Day Foundation has established innovative partnerships with local health, behavioral health, criminal justice, community and social service agencies. These partnerships provide access to “on-the-spot” presumptive Medicaid health insurance coverage, on-sight medical, behavioral health, dental and vision service care referral, and on-site care and smart justice opportunities. Make-A-Day outreach takes a relationship-centered approach that helps guests explore opportunities and avail themselves of resources that they may not otherwise consider through more traditional outreach approaches. Through partnerships with the Mid-Ohio Food Collective, Federally Qualified Health Centers, hospital systems, mental health and addiction service providers, mobile medical and dental providers, Job and Family Services and rapid rehousing agencies, Make-A-Day connects guests to comprehensive referral resources, and access to healthy food and benefits resources, and health and behavioral health system navigation assistance.
