Canvasing/Street Team with Northwest Side Community Development Corporation

The Northwest Side Community Development Corporation (NWSCDC) is looking for volunteers to assist with community canvassing. As much of our work is with a resident led approach, we want to know what resources and development the residents of Belmont Cragin want to create or preserve. As a volunteer you will be supporting the work of the CDC and program offerings around small business support, housing and rental counseling services, financial coaching and organizing and advocacy around commercial corridor development. This helps the CDC further the goals of support to residents to avoid displacement and bring resources through community driven development. Bilingual English/Spanish speaking volunteers preferred

Partner: The Northwest Side Community Development Corporation exists on the Northwest Side to create jobs, build partnerships and strengthen communities.
