BLDG Memphis – Community Engagement Coordinator

bldg memphis

BLDG Memphis & Neighborhood Collaborative for Resilience
Community Engagement Coordinator
Closes 02/16/2018

Overview
BLDG Memphis is a coalition of organizations and individuals who support the development and redevelopment of safe, healthy, and attractive neighborhoods throughout the Memphis region.

Early in 2017, Memphis was one of six regions selected to receive a three-year grant from the Strong, Prosperous, and Resilient Communities Challenge (SPARCC) initiative, which is designed to “amplify locally driven efforts to ensure that major new infrastructure investments lead to equitable, healthy opportunities for everyone.” (More information is available at sparcchub.org). SPARCC is supported by several national foundations and technical support organizations. Although the SPARCC initiative is focused on changes at
the regional level, the initial work locally is focused on the North Memphis area.

BLDG Memphis is administering the SPARCC grant on behalf of the Neighborhood Collaborative for Resilience (NCR), the body of residents, stakeholders, and neighborhood leaders working on behalf of the broader North Memphis community. The ideal candidate will have experience in communications, public relations, stakeholder and constituent relations, and event management, in particular working with grassroots organizations and community leaders. Ideally, the candidate can offer experience and/or in-depth knowledge and commitment to the promotion of an authentic community-driven design and implementation.

Reporting
This position will report directly to the BLDG Memphis SPARCC Project Manager, and ultimately the executive director, but also will have accountability to the leadership of NCR.

Responsibilities
The Community Engagement Coordinator will be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with various stakeholders to increase awareness of, participation in, and support for NCR. Working closely with the Project Manager and NCR leadership, the Coordinator will be responsible for planning and executing events and activities related to relevant programs and campaigns undertaken by the organization. A key aspect of the role will be working with volunteers. Other job tasks will include general communications duties and communications projects as assigned. Continue reading

Point-In-Time Homeless Count – 1/24/18

We All Count! Annual Point-in-Time Homeless Count for Memphis/Shelby County

On Wednesday, January 24th, beginning at 4:00 a.m., Community Alliance for the Homeless, Inc. will lead the annual Point-in-Time Count for Memphis and Shelby County. Required by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), this annual count is a critical element for measuring our community’s efforts to end homelessness. Additionally, it helps to determine the number of people who are experiencing homelessness at a given point in time.  The Salvation Army’s Purdue Center of Hope (696 Jackson Avenue) will serve as the command center for this year’s event.

Teams (which consist of community volunteers, service providers, and formerly homeless individuals) will go out to various areas between dusk and dawn when individuals who are experiencing homelessness are either in sheltered or unsheltered locations for the night. In addition to participating in a brief survey, unsheltered individuals will also receive a care package with items to keep them warm and nourished during the cold winter months that lie ahead. Donations of hand warmers, gloves, and winter caps are also needed to support this effort.

To obtain additional information or to register as a volunteer for this life-impacting service opportunity, please visit http://www.cafth.org/point-in-time. To assist in this process, the public is invited to report knowledge of the whereabouts of any individual who appears to be sleeping in a place that is not meant for human habitation using the Homeless Outreach Tool (on the website) or by connecting with the organization on Facebook.

Community Alliance for the Homeless is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to lead effective community practices to end homelessness in Memphis and Shelby County, Tennessee.

For more information, please contact Herman L. Dickey, Continuum of Care Coordinator at (901) 527-1302, or via e-mail at herman@cafth.org.
