2019-2020 Program Intake Specialist
Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build hope, communities and homes. DuPage Habitat for Humanity is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Our vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. We build homes that are sold to qualifying families with a price structure so that no more than 30% of their household income is used for their mortgage payment. DuPage Habitat is in the midst of substantial growth and development. We are a midsized affiliate serving over 40 families per year and we have an aggressive growth plan that will continue to increase the number of families. While the vast majority of Americans feel stable and secure in their current situation, housing insecurity touches nearly half of adults at some point in their lives. This AmeriCorps VISTA project will address the need for affordable housing through outreach to community organizations and individuals to share about our programs, as well as connecting them to other resources they may need. The ideal candidate for this position is organized, patient, and task driven. This position requires confidentiality, and compassion for what clients are going through. In addition, this VISTA should be able to compile and analyze data to influence program outreach and marketing efforts. This position is a part of the Housing Action VISTA Network, which is an AmeriCorps VISTA program managed by Housing Action Illinois since 2010. As such, this position will receive expert training, support, guidance, and networking opportunities, in addition to the traditional opportunities for AmeriCorps VISTA positions. Learn more about the program at Housing Action’s website.
