Executive Summary

AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps seeks AmeriCorps funding to expand our successful year-long service program, which places recent college graduates full-time at anti-poverty organizations in New York, Chicago, New Orleans, and Washington, DC. AVODAH has brought services to 230,000 people in poverty and leveraged over $7 million in staffing costs for our service sites, but there is much more to do. Federal funding will enable AVODAH to increase our service slots and address growing poverty.
