FCEH AmeriCorps Project

FCEH is proud to partner with AmeriCorps, a national service program that provides opportunities for individuals to serve their communities in many different capacities (often called the domestic version of the Peace Corps). We will engage 10 FTE AmeriCorps members annually who serve from 5-10 months through the AmeriCorps State program. In exchange for a living stipend, educational award, and valuable on-the-job experience, members commit to intensive service that furthers our mission of caring for those who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless.

Thank You to our Partners For Making this Project Possible!
