E3.18 Damiano Center Sustaining Community Coordinator VISTA
The Damiano Center of Duluth honors the dignity of all people as we strengthen our community by providing essential services to individuals and families who are in need. The Damiano Center is the largest emergency meal provider in Northeastern Minnesota and has the only free store in Duluth. We also offer children's programming, a clothing program specifically for people seeking employment, and we provide referrals and other basic assistance to those struggling in our region. The Damiano Center Sustaining Community Coordinator VISTA will increase our ability to serve those in need and help lift them out of poverty by expanding our volunteer programs and improving the efficiency of our multiple programs. The VISTA member will have a unique opportunity to help define future programming that brings urban agriculture, social enterprise, youth training, and urban food growing together. Programs that will be supported by the VISTA member's capacity building include the Damiano Soup Kitchen, community service referral service, the Kids' Kitchen (reduces childhood hunger by providing nutritious meals, nutrition education and a fun and nurturing place for kids after school and during the summer), clothing programs, and youth job training. As an Ecolibrium3 Resilience Corps member, you will join 15 others working throughout northeastern Minnesota to reduce poverty and improve the health and wellness experienced by our community members. Although each cohort member will have their own project and placement, the Ecolibrium3 Resilience Corps members will design and implement one joint project during their service year.
