The Department of Housing and Human Services (DHHS), in partnership with A STAR AmeriCorps, is pleased to announce the availability of one (1) opening for a full-time AmeriCorps Member to serve at the DHHS. Specifically, the AmeriCorps Member will serve as an Outreach Worker and will be responsible for a variety of tasks in the Department of Housing and Human Services.
AmeriCorps is a national service program sponsored by the Corporation for National Service in cooperation with State governments, intermediary organizations, and service sites. Full-time Members receive a living allowance stipend of $17,502 for a one-year (1,700 hours) full-time commitment of service. Health care coverage, deferment of student loans, training, and other benefits are available if member qualifies. AmeriCorps members also receive an Educational Award of $6,895 after the completion of 1,700 hours of service/full-time service. Perhaps most importantly, members gain invaluable “hands-on” experience by assisting people and communities that are in need of help.
Through a wide array of programs and services, the DHHS provides food, shelter, medical care, housing, transportation, and other forms of assistance to families and individuals that are lower-income or homeless. Started in 1968, the DHHS is sponsored by the City of Frederick.
