Avodah's Jewish Service Corps places Corps Members (ages 21-26) from across the United States at leading anti-poverty nonprofits in Chicago, New Orleans, New York, Washington, DC, and San Diego. There they spend a year combating the causes and effects of poverty.
Dalia attended Pitzer College in California and graduated with a degree in American studies. She became interested in Avodah and wanted to work alongside other youth engaging in social action to bring awareness to these critical issues.
She had never worked within the affordable housing sector, but that did not stop Dalia from joining Housing Unlimited to gain experience and a further understanding of housing instability within American society.
Dalia went from having limited prior experience within the affordable housing sector to managing our 200+ person waitlist. She worked alongside Housing Unlimited counterparts to ensure a smooth transition for future tenants-- beginning with applicant outreach and continuing all the way to signing their lease for their new home!
“Through working at Housing Unlimited, I have seen how crucial housing is to individuals in mental health recovery. It has been truly meaningful hearing from tenants about how the program has helped them succeed and become more independent.”
