UUMC is partnering with HACA in a community outreach to individuals in need of housing. The Section 8 Waitlist will open for one week only in October. UUMC will be offering online pre-application assistance to our Street Youth and Open Door guests. Volunteers (including Spanish speakers) are needed! If you or someone you know is able to bring a laptop computer or other Internet accessible device to UUMC either on Thursday, 10/23/14 from 2 to 4 p.m. or Saturday, 10/25/14 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. your help is needed. Your task will be to obtain simple pre-application information from one guest at a time and enter it on the HACA website. (There is an online training toolkit at http://hacanet.org/apply/hcvtraining.php if you’d like to prepare beforehand.) The first half hour on each of the two days will include a brief orientation session and assistance in setting up prior to meeting with a guest. The last call for HACA Section 8 waitlist applicants was in 2006. Your help is needed so that our guests choosing to apply have access to this community resource in a safe and supportive environment. If you are willing to make this one-time half day commitment, please e-mail either Raelyn Leifeste (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jane Leifeste (email@example.com) with your name, any other contact information, and the day(s) – Thurs. or Sat. or both – you are available.
