18-19 Catherine McAuley Center: Employment Services VISTA
The Catherine McAuley Center (CMC) is the only provider of transitional housing for unaccompanied women in Linn County. Women served by CMC often face multiple barriers to employment and financial stability, including mental health and criminal history. CMC also serves immigrants and refugees, the majority of whom have incomes below 150% of the Federal Poverty level. Limited English ability, unfamiliarity with the American job system, lack of employment-related social networks and lack of culturally-appropriate childcare opportunities create significant barriers to stable employment. Catherine McAuley Center is part of the Iowa Campus Compact (IACC) VISTA Community Corps program. IACC is a membership organization for colleges and universities committed to the public role of higher education. The IACC VISTA Community Corps builds partnerships between member campuses and community-based organizations, building capacity and alleviating poverty in relation to education and economic opportunity. While IACC VISTA positions are located across the state of Iowa, this position is located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
