Annually, AmeriCorps connects more than 75,000 Americans with opportunities for national service at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and faith-based groups across the country. These AmeriCorps members tackle pressing concerns like homelessness, unemployment, and financial illiteracy, and engage millions of volunteers to get things done in their communities. More than 1,000,000 members have completed more than 1 billion service hours since the program’s start in 1994.
AmeriCorps members serve approximately 40 hours per week. While enrolled, full time members are eligible to receive a living allowance and for student loan deferment. Health care and childcare assistance are also available to those members serving on a full-time basis. Upon successful completion of a term of service, members receive an education award to pay student loans or tuition at qualifying institutions.
AmeriCorps at the Ministry of Caring
The Ministry of Caring provides a diverse range of human services programs for low-income and homeless clients across Wilmington, DE. Our motto is, “the poor should never be treated poorly.” In this spirit, the Ministry tackles the immediate needs of people in crisis situations and offers support to individuals and families seeking to improve their long-term outlook.
Our AmeriCorps members promote economic opportunity through service in emergency shelters, employment search and job-readiness assistance, homeless outreach and support, and low-income senior housing. As a member of the Ministry of Caring AmeriCorps team, you will serve directly alongside Ministry of Caring clients and residents to bring positive change to our most vulnerable neighbors. The Ministry of Caring AmeriCorps program is made possible through a generous grant from Serve Delaware. If you have questions about the program, please contact Kim Fisher at 302-516-1072 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
