2018 Hesed House Rehab Special Projects Summer VISTA
Hesed House's mission is to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and give people the chance to hope again. Hesed House is a national model for ending homelessness - one person, one family at a time. It is the culmination of nearly three decades of strategic evolution from a formerly acceptable model of "eats and sheets" to a Comprehensive Homeless Resource Center - a campus of centralized highly skilled professionals collaborating to provide the tools necessary to help individuals and families break free of the shackles binding them to homelessness. Our organization is dedicated to alleviating the plight of homeless persons by providing food, shelter, dignity and the services needed to return to independent living. The VISTA will work with Hesed Director of Buildings and Grounds to transform former Transitional Living Community program space into two new programs. We are looking for a highly motivated self-starter, multi-tasker and team player, capable of working with staff to undertake multiple maintenance projects. Previous experience in trades, construction or general handiwork is required.
