TSC EOC 2021: Neighborhood Legal Services
Through placement at essential Western New York nonprofits, AmeriCorps Economic Opportunity Corps (EOC) members serve to improve community members’ financial resiliency, stability, and wellness. As WNY begins our economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, your service, in areas such as housing security and affordability, free legal services, access to supportive services and benefits, college readiness, and health equity, will provide vital aid in helping our region build back better. Members join EOC from all backgrounds, and the most important characteristic our members have is a passion for assisting others as we work together towards the main AmeriCorps mission of eliminating poverty. In service with EOC, you will be making a lifelong impact in peoples’ lives for decades and generations to come. National service has never been more vital to our local community, so please apply today!

Member Duties : Since 1976, Neighborhood Legal Services' (NLS) mission has been to ensure justice through free legal representation of Western New York residents who, due to financial vulnerability, disability, discrimination or abuse, require assistance and protection of their civil legal rights. The Homeless Task Force (HTF) is a NLS project with the goal to help clients transition out of homelessness and financial insecurity by gaining access to mainstream resources and financial literacy. The EOC member will work under the supervision of a HTF staff attorney. The member will meet with clients, complete initial intakes, and review the case information with a supervising attorney. The member will also review the client's eligibility for benefits as part of the financial literacy goal. If more action is necessary, the member may make phone calls to the appropriate agency personnel to advocate on behalf of their clients.
