More about these examples of LVC positions
Each year, Lutheran Volunteer Corps matches 90-95 full time Volunteers with social justice non-profit organizations across the U.S. This directory provides an overview of placement positions for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 program years.  About 80% of LVC partner placement organizations re-apply each year and we also have new positions each year that may not yet be on this list.

LVC Applicants see available positions as part of the application and matching process, including more in depth position descriptions. To have the widest choice of positions, apply by our Round 1 January 15th deadline. There are significantly fewer positions available for the Round 2 April 1st deadline.

Case Manager – Miriam’s Kitchen

,
Miriam's Kitchen works to end chronic homelessness in Washington, DC. We advocate for permanent supportive housing as a long-term solution, while meeting short-term needs by providing healthy meals and high-quality social services to the chronically homeless. Miriam's Kitchen was founded in 1983 by a collaboration of local faith organizations, and has provided meals, social services, and advocacy to homeless individuals in Washington, DC, ever since its founding.

The Case Manager develops trusting relationships with Miriam's Kitchen guests, provides referrals and information, and engages individuals in clinical case management. The Case Manager assists homeless guests to work toward the goals they identify, including seeking employment, housing, applying for benefits, and obtaining health care, mental health care, and drug treatment. There are also opportunities to lead groups for the Miriam's Studio Program, which provides a smaller, therapeutic environment every weekday morning and afternoon. Classes include art, creative writing, yoga, client-led advocacy, and poetry. Case Managers are encouraged to participate in provider groups and advocacy coalitions to help meet the needs of homeless individuals in Washington, D.C.
