M:STL- Criminal Justice Ministry Services Summer Associate
CJM assisted 137 clients with permanent supportive housing in 2018, in addition to another 644 clients who received direct services to aid their reentry. The direct services provided to these clients include transportation assistance, hygiene items, undergarments, work boots, medical assistance, and vital paper documentation. The Summer Associate VISTA would advance CJM’s mission by providing direct services to clients in the FIRST Services department, conducting data entry in CJM’s client tracking database, and researching evidence based practices and community resources to further aid CJM clients. During their two months with CJM, the Summer Associate VISTA would have contact with at least 100 clients, providing them with essential items and making targeted referrals to other community service providers where necessary. They will be under the direct supervision of the Reentry Services Coordinator, who would meet with the VISTA weekly to make sure that the Summer Associate VISTA is comfortable with all of the duties assigned and to address questions and concerns as they arise.
