As the Marketing and Communications Coordinator VISTA member at
Peace at Home Family Shelter, you will help end poverty by
improving Peace at Home's capacity to provide life-saving shelter
and supportive services to victims of domestic violence fleeing
abuse and their children. Each year, Peace at Home works with over
1,000 individuals in our community, providing emergency shelter,
crisis hotline, legal representation, housing assistance,
counseling services, support groups, and children's programs to
help people flee domestic violence and build new, stable lives. You
will help by strategically building capacity for awareness of Peace
at Home Family Shelter and the services provided. With greater
awareness, more survivors of domestic violence know about help they
can receive and potential supporters are able to connect with Peace
at Home. Specifically, your work will focus on leading
organizational marketing, including: social media, website
presence, blog, email marketing, and print materials. You will also
collaborate with Peace at Home staff and other VISTA members to
identify awareness and support needs and how to communicate those
to the larger community. This VISTA will have the opportunity to
work with seasoned nonprofit administrators and program personnel
and network with other nonprofits and community partners. A great
opportunity for a strong communicator interested in marketing,
community awareness, and social justice. The applicant should hold
a 4-year degree in a related field or have 4 years' experience in a
similar field of work. Applicants should be able to successfully
work independently, be organized, have strong writing skills, and
have a passion for helping survivors of domestic violence.
Applicant will be required to pass a background check. This
position will have the opportunity to work a hybrid in-person and
telework model to the extent that the AmeriCorps program allows
