Allied Churches/ Administration

Description: ON THE BIOBUS LOOP Allied Churches of Alamance County advances our mission of providing emergency services in a safe and healthy environment, while moving individuals toward self-sufficiency. We seek to provide meals, shelter, resources, and support in order to meet social, education, health, and other needs by serving the lonely, hungry, and homeless in Alamance County, N.C. We are sustained by the generosity of individual and organization donations from community members, contributions of food, and commitment from volunteers. Our services target those facing multiple barriers to success, including: Homelessness / housing instability Hunger / limited access to basic needs Histories of abuse / neglect Severe mental illness / chemical dependency Minimal job training / community disconnect Lack of education / no positive support Students could possibly work directly with shelter clients-helping to meet shelter needs such as dispensing towels or with the kitchen helping to prepare meals and serve clients. Specific needs could be addressed such as helping to teach or assist with teaching "basic skills" such as hygiene and personal care. The office may also need students to perform administration or work with the drop-in Center located in Graham-all students report to the main office in Burlington.
