The program places full-time and half-time members at local agencies. Members serve at the agencies to address the long-term needs of Flint residents effected by he water crisis, particularly in areas of food stability and nutrition, access to medical services, early education, and behavioral and developmental needs. AmeriCorps members are providing service to build capacity for organizations, connect residents with resources, and serve clients who may have been impacted by exposure to lead in drinking water. 2017 host sites are: Asbury Community Development Corporation, Evergreen Community Development Initiative, Flint & Genesee Literacy Network, Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, North Flint Reinvestment Corporation, Pediatric Public Health Initiative, Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village, and Urban Renaissance Center. This exciting new program also serves to amplify already existing programs by connecting local agencies with one another through AmeriCorps member interaction.
