Americorps 2011

Kevin Campbell | February 23, 2011

Americorps, the domestic version of Peace Corps, is in the news lately.  It’s in the news because some lawmakers in Washington have proposed eliminating the entire program.  This past weekend the House of Representatives passed a measure eliminating the program as part of a deficit reduction strategy. This year, Habitat Wake is blessed to host four Americorps members:  Cori, Kate, Joel and Naomi who have chosen to spend a year in service to this community.  They currently serve as site leaders on our construction and deconstruction sites.  I honestly don’t know what we would do without them.  We always have plenty of unskilled, occasional volunteers, but where would that daily site leadership come from?
