As Philadelphia rapidly grows and develops, Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s work to preserve the rich fabric of our neighborhoods becomes increasingly important. We work to maintain homeownership opportunities and improve the quality of life for individuals and families through new home construction, home rehabilitations, home repairs, and various community projects. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia’s continuing growth as we strive to meet the need for affordable homeownership and repair opportunities in Philadelphia. AmeriCorps members contribute a year of service, and in return receive a modest living stipend, a basic health insurance plan, an education award, job training, and personal and professional growth opportunities.
The Community Outreach Coordinator plays a critical role in strengthening relationships through planning, coordination and implementation of projects in partnership with the community. As a community outreach coordinator, you will build relationships and partnerships with residents, local agencies, elected officials and community stakeholders. Through these partnerships, you will help identify areas where Habitat for Humanity’s housing and community development solutions can intersect with the community’s identified aspirations. You will coordinate community improvement projects and engage volunteers from the local community to support the planning and execution of these projects.
