The Partnership to End Homelessness is a State AmeriCorps Program dedicated to alleviating homelessness in Guilford County. Our Members are deployed across 10 Partner Agencies to serve the needs of homeless men, women, youth, the disabled, the recovering, and those in crisis situations. These roles are part time requiring about 20 hours per week.Supported by a grant from the North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service in the Office of Governor Pat McCrory
The Partnership to End Homelessness serves to restore hope in the Greensboro Homeless Community. Members work directly with our homeless clients to provide food, shelter, furniture, emergency financial assistance, life skills coaching, employment counseling, and case management. In addition to serving at their sites, each month the team implements community service projects to benefit the homeless and hungry.
The AmeriCorps Partnership to End Homelessness Team is active in the community. In addition to the service they perform at their service site, Members get involved as a team with the community. Members have raised funds and awareness through the CROP Walk for hunger, given away turkeys and groceries to the needy at Thanksgiving, led the candlelight walk of remembrance at the Homeless Memorial, helped serve the homeless veterans at the Triad Stand Down, made and served chili to those on the street who are hungry, cleaned up camps where homeless people live, walked in the Martin Luther King Day Parade, and interviewed homeless people for the annual Point in Time Count.
