AmeriCorps Community Enrichment (ACE) Program

Program Description:

ACE members will enhance and support services that work with homeless, HIV positive individuals, many who are transitioning from incarceration; recruit and coordinate volunteers as scout leaders; coordinate volunteers for various housing projects; coordinate a community wide monthly meeting of The Providers Council; coordinate volunteers who refurbish donated computers that are given to children; coordinate food and clothing drives through Habitat for Humanity, Land of Lincoln Girl Scout Council, Fifth Street Renaissance, Dr. Edwin Lee Community Resource Center, Computer Banc, Outreach and Education staff at Contact Ministries, and Division of Student Affairs at the University of Illinois at Springfield.
