Joliet Diocese Announces Anti-Poverty Grants for Grassroots Organizing


From Joliet, Illinois Patch:

Anti-Poverty Organizations Eligible for Grants

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is attempting to address the problem of poverty by providing grants to self-help programs initiated and led by poor people. These groups help create sustainable jobs, preserve affordable housing, improve neighborhoods, and enhance opportunities for people so they can find a dignified way out of poverty.

CCHD is funded by Catholics who generously give in a once-a-year collection at their parishes.(more)

New Website “Organizers for America”: Community Organizer Job Bank


Organizers for America is a free service to community organizations, unions and allied groups seeking to hire community organizers and related positions.

Employers can list jobs, internships and volunteer positions (please no partisan political jobs). Job seekers can search the listings and post resumes.

If you have any questions about this service, call 301-270-0640 or visit the website National Organizers Alliance, which provides this site as a service to organizing groups. NOA, of which I am a member, is an excellent resource for and about organizing.
