Advocacy and Education Assistant – Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity
The LVC Volunteer will join a fun, engaging, and dynamic advocacy and education program in a position that focuses on engaging Habitat supporters in learning about housing and poverty issues and engaging them as grassroots advocates for public policy. Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity has worked to provide affordable housing opportunities to the Twin Cities and seven county metro area for 29 years. We continue our efforts to eliminate poverty housing in our community but recognize that the need for affordable housing is much bigger than we can solve by our programs alone. To achieve our mission and multiply our impact, we are engaging supporters in advocacy for public policy to increase the supply of housing at every level of the housing continuum ' emergency shelter, supportive housing, rental, and homeownership. The Volunteer will also spend a portion of their time in our Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) Program. Neighborhood Revitalization was created to address the needs of two neighborhoods (Jordan in North Minneapolis, and Frogtown in St. Paul) that have some of the highest poverty rates in the state, and have experienced years of economic and racial injustices. The Volunteer will help us organize and build relationships in the community so that neighborhood residents are driving the decisions that affect their neighborhoods, and ultimately experience increased overall quality of life.
