  • Play a role in the analysis of program/project impact, helping to identify gaps and develop recommendations for program improvement
  • Collect, track, and maintain case assessment and related client interactions using DOROTs’ online database as it involves routine home assessment data entry and the review of monthly statistics for internal needs and reports to funders
  • Provide support to and participate in DOROT’s community-wide intergenerational volunteer programs and on-site events, schedule permitting
  • Staff the Information and Referral (I&R) telephone line, as needed
