ShareCorps -Furniture Bank- Volunteer Engagement Coordinator
 
 
 
The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio is a unique and collaborative organization that provides furniture to central Ohio families and individuals in poverty and struggling with severe life challenges so that they can improve their lives. It started twenty years ago with one man with a truck in a church basement and has grown to serving an average of 3,500 families a year. The Furniture Bank picks up gently used furniture, mattresses and household items then works with dozens of nonprofits, churches and social service agencies to help families living in poverty. Families typically visit the Furniture Bank to pick out 10 to 20 pieces of furniture- beds, dressers, tables, chairs and other household items at our one-stop shop warehouse, then have their furniture delivered the same day. The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio is one of the largest furniture banks in the country, and works with 9,000 donors, 2,000 volunteers, 3,500 client families and more than 100 referring agencies each year. The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio operates three social enterprises- two Furniture with a Heart thrift stores and Downsize with a Heart, a downsizing and moving business.

Member Duties : The Furniture Bank of Central Ohio has expanded into Lancaster! This new location is a combination thrift store and furniture bank. As our new VISTA, you will be creating a new volunteer program tailored to that location. Utilizing social media and other identified marketing avenues, you will recruit a new volunteer base, develop volunteer job descriptions, and establish official onboarding procedures. You will also make inroads with with local non-profits, churches, and government agencies by leading group volunteer events and coordinating in-kind donation drives. Your initiation of volunteer appreciation events will serve to retain your recruited volunteers and partners. Finally, through the development of a survey administered to the families we serve, you will identify key improvements to the quality of our services in the community.
