They’re now accepting applications for their first Corps Members to join their team from October 2021 to August 2022. Corps Members will work part-time conducting outreach, while supporting residents in understanding their eligibility and completing resource applications. Applications are due Friday, August 27th at 5pm. Apply here: bit.ly/CRCmember. Please help spread the word using this digital toolkit. Follow up with CAC@phila.gov for questions.
