Community Resource Guide
As with everything in 2020, I had an unusual start to my service term. I serve at the Housing Resource Center at COTS, a homeless shelter in Burlington. My office provides financial assistance for local renters. In the first half of my service, we had very few clients because their needs were met by other pandemic-related funding, so I had a lot of extra time on my hands.
For the past few years, one goal of the AmeriCorps position in the HRC has been to create a new community resource guide, but it's always fallen to the back burner because it's a lower priority than meeting with clients.
