2020 Warehouse Programs Process Coordinator Summer VISTA
How an agency handles and organizes donations is an integral piece to service delivery for a non-profit, especially when receiving large quantities of donations meant for many programs. This position will improve our donations process of moving donations into our warehouse for various needs, such as our clothes closet, PADS programs, toiletries, bicycle ministry, metal recycling, Holiday Store, move-out items, furniture and surplus donations section. Hesed House's mission is to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and give people the chance to hope again. Every year our homeless shelters serve about 1,000 people with nowhere else to turn. Community relationships and funding allow us to continue our mission of providing immediate food and shelter for those in need and give us the ability to return them to independent living. In addition, 61 households and 128 people are currently being served by Hesed’s supportive housing programs. All programs at Hesed House will benefit from an increased efficiency in our warehouse donations process, since all programs use donated goods from the community and need to be able to find those goods. 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 customized 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. This position can start any Monday in June. Speak to your interviewer for more details.
