Do you want to help save the world? 

Hesed House is second largest homeless shelter in Illinois, but we are so much more than a shelter. We are a faith-based comprehensive homeless resource center in Aurora and we believe that everyone deserves dignity and that ending homelessness is possible.

As an AmeriCorps VISTA (sort of like a domestic Peace Corps) at Hesed House, you will:

  • Work with volunteer department to create, develop, recruit, train, maintain and provide a volunteer plan for sustained success in Hesed’s new PADS Family Shelter (PADS FS)
  •  Identify other needs in the PADS FS program that could be staffed by a volunteer-run program.
  • Implement one new PADS Family Shelter volunteer program.
  • Help maintain and improve volunteer relations for all programs, while expanding capacity to find answers for difficult-to-fill shifts such as breakfast shifts.
