LTSC Resident Services Program Fellow
 
 
 
LTSC is a multi-service, nonprofit based in Little Tokyo Los Angeles. LTSC has been serving those in need in the greater Los Angeles area since 1979. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive array of social welfare & community development services to assist low income & other persons in need, contribute to community revitalization & cultural preservation in Little Tokyo & among the broader Japanese community in the Southland, & to provide such resources to neighboring Asian Pacific Islander & other low income communities. In 2014 LTSC Resident Services staff began the Financial Capability & Asset Building Program. The program consists of (1) building the financial capacity of residents in order to put them in a position to build assets; includes acquiring skills, knowledge, or improving their cash position, which can enable them to build assets; (2) assist residents in creating or strengthening financial assets such as increased savings, improved credit record &/or FICO score by paying bills on time, completing a degree, certificate, or job skill course, securing a higher paying job or other additional income. The services have grown to include a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance site; an IRS sponsored free tax help program for people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities & limited English speaking taxpayers, needing assistance with tax preparation. The VISTA Member will serve one-year of service with the Resident Services staff in managing the department’s Volunteer Program; enhance current onboarding procedures, train new volunteers & staff, update tracking system to accurately identify hours served by volunteers. The volunteer will research & write grant proposals to leverage funding in support of department programs. The ideal candidate will work well in a team setting but also independently. Looking for proactive, high energy & creative individuals that will contribute new ideas to enhance the efficiency & quality of services.
