Silver Spring-based nonprofit A Wider Circle is seeking associates for its Neighbor-To-Neighbor program. Associates are needed to do the “heavy lifting” in their movement to end poverty.
According to the flyer obtained by the Source, associates “help collect donated furniture that we then distribute free of charge to individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness, escaping domestic violence, or who have just been living for too long without life’s necessities.”
The position is a one-year term, working 4 days per week, with a $35,000/year salary. Advancement opportunities within the organization after the first year are also available.
On its website, A Wider Circle describes the Neighbor-To-Neighbor program as its largest: “The Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program, A Wider Circle’s largest program, provides beds, dressers, tables, chairs, dishes, pots, pans, and other large and small home goods to families transitioning out of shelters, escaping domestic violence, or otherwise living without their basic need items.
Individuals and families call on their own or are referred to A Wider Circle by more than 300 government or nonprofit social service agencies, large and small. After speaking to our staff and scheduling an appointment to visit our Center for Community Service, people have the opportunity to select the items they need, free of charge. Each year, A Wider Circle furnishes the homes of more than 4,000 families, helping to create the stability and dignity that everyone deserves.”
