The mission of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity (TCHFH) is to eliminate poverty housing in the Twin Cities and to make decent, affordable shelter for all people a matter of conscience. TCHFH is an interfaith Christian housing ministry which helps low-income families purchase and maintain a decent, affordable, and secure home. TCHFH formed in 1985 and completed its first home in late 1986. We have completed over 850 homes to date and plan to complete an additional 60 this year.

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.

The mission of MadGrace is 'Seeking the Beloved Community Through the Liberating Love of Jesus.' We are a small church that has been active in Seattle's Central area for well over 100 years, with ministries ranging from after school tutoring to hosting breakfasts of the black panthers. We currently have a permanent shelter for homeless families in our basement and we are building a tiny home for a formerly homeless on-site supervisor while making the rest of our building available to the community through a project called 'The Madrona Commons.'

Madrona Grace is a small, progressive, diverse church located about three miles from downtown Seattle in a beautiful and walk-able neighborhood called Madrona. We are seeking a young adult to be a part of our pastoral team who can help organize and develop creative, sustainable ministries by drawing on the assets of our extended community.

UNITE HERE Local 2850 is a small local union committed to building low-wage workers' leadership to fight for living wages and rights on the job. We organize workers in fast food, hotels, college cafeterias, and other hospitality jobs. Like other UNITE HERE Locals, we are leading the labor movement in developing the voices and power of low-wage, immigrant workers.

The Community Organizer will be responsible for mobilizing community allies - congregations, student groups, community organizations, etc. - to stand with low-wage workers who are fighting for their rights. Recent projects included organizing fast food workers at the Oakland Airport - and building a coalition with groups representing WalMart and restaurant workers to strengthen the national movement for justice for low-wage workers. We also mobilized workers, students and faculty to fight for a living wage for Cal State East Bay cafeteria workers. We're working with immigrant hotel housekeepers to win safe and healthy workloads. And we're teaming with food justice groups to plan 'union gardens' in our members' homes - and make sure that food workers don't have to live with hunger. Our campaigns change over time, and current one may no longer be active by the time the volunteer starts (in which case, he or she can plan the victory party!). All our campaigns are focused on building strong community support for low-wage workers. One tactic we often use is the community boycott, inspired by Cesar Chavez' grape boycott. If there is an active boycott at the time the volunteer joins us, he or she would be responsible for education the community about why it's important not to patronize businesses that abuse their workers.

The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition began because there was no place to advocate for safe bike infrastructure in Minneapolis. We began as a grassroots volunteer advocacy group, and as our organization grew, we added staff while remaining volunteer driven and member supported. Our goal is to make Minneapolis a better place for bicycling in all corners of the city, for everyone. We have a track record of success that has helped lead to new bike lanes, new bike parking, the hiring of the first-ever Minneapolis bicycle and pedestrian coordinator, and the hosting of Open Streets Minneapolis events, which are neighborhood events which allow people to experience major thoroughfares as places for pedestrians and bicyclists to enjoy.

The Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition Communication and Outreach Associate will assist staff primarily with the Bikeways for Everyone program, and occasionally will assist with other projects. 'Bikeways for Everyone' is a campaign for 30 miles of new protected bikeways in Minneapolis by 2020. The campaign is volunteer driven and staff supported, meaning there are lots of opportunities for volunteers to develop leadership skills and guide the direction of projects. A Communication and Outreach Associate will assist the Community Organizer in seeking out and creating new outreach opportunities, do outreach at events, and come up with fun and exciting ways to communicate the Bikeways for Everyone message to the public. Some responsibilities would include blogging about events, sharing information through social media, working with outreach volunteers, and reaching out to organizations for the purpose of forming partnerships. There are three full-time staff, with one staff person supervising the Communication and Outreach Associate. The office is small, but we have a a wide and diverse base of volunteers we work with to make far-reaching changes to Minneapolis bike infrastructure. You do not need to drive a car in order to hold this position!

The Compass Housing Alliance has been offering shelter to Seattle's homeless since 1920. Founded by a Lutheran Pastor, Otto Karlstrom, it was originally called the Lutheran Sailors & Loggers Mission. When the Compass Center was established, clients were primarily Caucasian males with two defined issues ' lack of work and/or alcoholism. Seattle attracted men who sought work as loggers and sailors and who often found only sporadic employment. During the depression years, Seattle was filled with unemployed men from land and sea. The mission was taxed to its limits. Men flocked into the mission hall seeking shelter, food, clothing and jobs. Multitudes of men, sailors, loggers, minors, fishermen passed through. (The Compass, February 1926).The Compass Center of 2011-12 serves a much different population. It is a culturally and ethnically diverse population, consisting of individuals with varying strengths and needs. Many present with multiple issues including domestic abuse, mental illness, drug/alcohol dependence, poor employment histories, undeveloped employment skills, child custody or other legal issues, and poor or incomplete rental histories. The Compass Center has evolved in response to the change of needs presented by the client population.

Minnesota Housing Partnership (MHP) convenes, guides, and supports a diversity of partners working to improve conditions of home and community. Building on decades of experience, we strengthen development capacity and promote policies that expand opportunity, especially for people at the lowest income levels. Mission: To promote homes for all Minnesotans and assist Minnesota communities in the creation and preservation of housing affordable to low- and moderate-income people. History: MHP began in 1987, as an informal coalition organizing community groups and nonprofit developers to play an active role in affordable housing. The catalyst for this effort was the governor of Minnesota's decision to establish a commission to help guide the state's role in housing for the decade of the 1990s. The initial work of MHP focused on informing housing groups of policy and program developments occurring at the state and federal levels. MHP was also a catalyst for increased state funding targeted to addressing the housing needs of low-income people. In addition, MHP helped create the state's first programs to build the capacity of nonprofit housing providers. In 1989 MHP incorporated as a member-based, nonprofit organization. In 1994 MHP became a major provider of technical assistance and financial support to increase the capacity of housing development groups. MHP's demonstrated capacity to deliver housing programs led to its recruitment serving as a funding intermediary for several government agency programs: Minnesota Department of Human Services Crisis Housing Fund; U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD); U.S. Department of Agriculture-Rural Development. MHP delivers project-based and organizational technical assistance (TA), including multiple national TA contracts for HUD's Office of Community Planning and Development, Neighborhood Stabilization Program (foreclosure remediation and neighborhood revitalization), and Rural Capacity Building Program. Over the years, MHP has also developed an effective lobbying arm and advocacy network. MHP has earned the respect of affordable housing supporters throughout Minnesota and at the national level, as well as government and legislative leaders. Today MHP continues to support housing for all Minnesotans through capacity building, advocacy, and small loans and grants for housing organizations.

The Development and Policy Associate is a key member of both the Development and the Policy teams at MHP. On the Policy team, responsibilities include coordinating campaigns for state and/or federal affordable housing policy; drafting communications to constituents, partners, and policy makers; organizing stakeholders in coalitions; and supporting lobbying efforts at the state and/or federal levels. On the Development team, responsibilities will focus on coordinating the MHP Investors Council, a group of companies/organizations concerned with affordable housing in Minnesota and committed to supporting the work of MHP. Tasks may include managing a fundraising database, drafting correspondence, and supporting the planning and implementation of a regular event series that convenes affordable housing industry leaders to engage in discussions about critical housing policy and practice issues. The Associate will also support grantwriting, social media, policy communications, and fundraising communications efforts.

World Relief, initially known as the World Relief Commission of the National Evangelical Association, was formed to address urgent humanitarian needs in war torn Europe and has since expanded to help vulnerable populations in various parts of the world and in the United States. We practice principles of transformational development to empower local churches in the United States and around the world so they can serve the vulnerable in their communities. World Relief has initiatives in refugee resettlement, anti-trafficking, and immigration legal services (in its offices in the United States), as well as education, health, child development, agriculture, food security, micro-enterprise, and disaster response (overseas). We work holistically with the local church to stand for those who are marginalized and disenfranchised: the sick, the widow, the orphan, and the alien. The Baltimore Immigration Clinic (Clinic), founded in 2004, advises and represents refugees and other immigrants, as well as U.S. citizens, seeking to reunite with foreign-born family members.

Founded in 1991, the Low Income Housing Institute develops, owns and operates housing for the benefit of low-income, homeless and formerly homeless people in Washington state; advocates for just housing policies at the local and national levels; and administers a range of supportive service programs to assist those weserve in maintaining stable housing and increasing their self-sufficiency. From the beginning, our emphases have been on providing advocacy and technical assistance to promote the interests of low-income and homeless people. LIHI is one of the largest providers of housing for homeless and low-income people in the Puget Sound area, with properties in King, Pierce, Snohomish, Kitsap, Thurston and Island Counties. Currently, LIHI owns and/or manages 48 properties containing over 1,700 housing units, providing homes for low-income families, individuals, seniors, people with disabilities, and women and children at risk. More than 700 of these units house formerly homeless families and individuals. Approximately 200 housing units serve individuals who are disabled or requireattention for special needs such as mental illness, alcohol and drug abuse, developmental disabilities or HIV/AIDS and related illnesses. 240 units serve senior citizens. Seventy-five percent of our housing units serve families or individuals earning less than 30 percent of the area median income. The remaining 25 percent earn between 30 and 60 percent of the area median income.LIHI also owns and operates The Urban Rest Stop [URS] in downtown Seattle. The URS is a much-needed hygiene facility for homeless individuals and families, providing free restrooms, showers and laundry facilities to homeless men, women and children within a clean, safe and dignified environment. By providing access to essential hygiene services, the URS improves the self-sufficiency of homeless individuals and families. The URS is designed to serve a wide range of people including homeless adults, families with children, youth and the elderly. Urban Rest Stop patrons include disabled persons, veterans, non-English-speaking individuals and people of color. Many of the homeless individuals we serve at the URS seek shelter in doorways, parks, freeway underpasses, cars and empty buildings - places without safe and sanitary restroom or shower facilities. They often have no access to preventative health care or hygiene services and are susceptible to disease and poor health from extreme weather and harsh living conditions.In November 2011, the Urban Rest Stop and the Low Income Housing Institute were approached by a local community youth shelter [ROOTS, Rising Out Of The Streets], located in the University District, to partner with Roots to provide hygiene services to the University District homeless population. ROOTS had recently secured a significant grant, which allows them to renovate the property that they currently lease from a local church, extend their lease for 15 years, and toupgrade and expand their on-site showers and laundry services. ROOTS operates from the early evening, 8:00 PM to 8:30 AM, daily. The University Methodist Church, where ROOTS is located, operates a Thrift Store, provides a free FridayFeast, and provides access to showers every Friday from noon until 5 PM to the University District's homeless residents. Since ROOTS and the University Methodist Church do not utilize the available shower and laundry facilities, from 8:00 AM to 8:00PM, Monday through Thursday,the four showers and two double stacked washers and dryers are available for use. The URS has implemented a hygiene program, in cooperation with Roots and the University Methodist Church, Tuesday through FridaY. The URS is actively seeking program resources, such as operating funds, volunteers and community donations. With an concern for program stability and sustainabilty, our staffiing plans include a Team Leader, relocated from the existing Urban Rest Stop, and a Team Member/Community Organizer. This position would assist the Team Leader by providing direct service during Tuesday through Friday operating hours and would serve as a link between the University District Community, including the University of Washington. A primary goal of this LVC position would be to establish a viable,volunteer service group among the University of Washington medical, social work and public health students, and among the University District located churches. Daily service levels are 65 - 75 showers and 12 - 16 laundry loads. The Urban Rest Stop will continue to operate under its proven model of successful service provision.A third location, the URS @ Ballard, will open fall 2015. The URS @ Ballard will serve a north-end Seattle neighborhood that is undergoing gentrification while increasing its homeless community. Ballard has been a working class neighborhood, composed of Scandinavian, Norwegian and other European immigrants. Ballard also has a significant homeless community, with people living in the green spaces, in warehouses, cars, under bridges and parks.

Provides direct service to Urban Rest Stop patrons by; Individual information and referral services, with an emphasis on housing and employment, assists in the identification and coordination of additional on-site services, assisting in daily Urban Rest Stop operations, cleaning, patron intake and reception, data base work assists with Urban Rest Stop web presence, represents the Urban Rest Stop at various community events, works with the Program Manager to develop additional services, volunteers and donations All URS staff and LVC/JVC positions are cross trained so all staff may work together. The Urban Rest Stop is requesting 2 LVC positions for the 2014-2015 Program year. We are opening a third URS in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. This neighborhood is a former working class neighborhood, which is being gentrified and while increasing its population of homeless residents .Ballard has a strong Lutheran presence. The URS @ Ballard has support from a number of neighborhood churches and organizations. I am seeking to further these relationships by developing a neighborhood URS @ Ballard Volunteer Core, which would assist in the daily operations of the URS, provide an antidote to the anti-homeless sentiment targeting the URS and it's patrons, and develop a base for resource donations,
