Housing Opportunities of Northern Kentucky (HONK) has an opening for an AmeriCorps VISTA Capacity Builder! HONK is a faith-based non-profit organization that creates affordable homeownership opportunities for lower income individuals and families. The VISTA opening is a new full-time volunteer service role at HONK, thanks to our partnership with the Homeless & Housing Coalition of Kentucky. The VISTA Capacity Builder will help build HONK's capacity by assisting with grant writing and other fundraising, by recruiting volunteers, securing donated materials and helping HONK tell our story and demonstrate our impact through photography, map generation, and the collection of data.
The VISTA Capacity Builder will receive a small living allowance ($973/mo.) and have an opportunity for basic health care during their year of service with HONK. They will also receive an education award of $5,775 when they have completed the program that can be used toward the payment of student loans. The education award can be passed on to children or grandchildren.
This is a full-time one-year commitment starting June 13, 2016.
Background check, drug screen, and valid driver's license required. More information on HONK can be found at www.honkhomes.org Those interested should contact David Hastings by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at (859) 581-4665.
