As part of a Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) grant of $4.98 million dollars, two Habitat AmeriCorps members will be serving with Upper Cumberland Habitat for Humanity for the 2018-2019 service year.
AmeriCorps members apply for and serve full-time at local Habitat organizations across the country, helping thousands of families build strong and stable homes. Award funds go toward corps member allowances and program administrative costs.
During the 2018-2019 service year, Habitat AmeriCorps members are expected to contribute more than 600,000 hours of service toward building or improving Habitat homes in 130 communities nationwide, alongside future and existing homeowners and other volunteers.
At UCHFH, AmeriCorps member Trent Carter will work doing Community Outreach in Overton County and Haley Dye will work as a ReStore Volunteer Coordinator in Putnam County. These positions will increase the impact Habitat has in both Putnam and Overton counties.
