Volunteers Working at Clean & Sober
Clean & Sober has again been selected as a service site placement for a Mercy Volunteer for fiscal year 2013 - 2014. This will be the 8th year in a row that we have had the services of a Mercy Volunteer. The Mercy Volunteer makes a full year commitment to serving and assisting our residents. Clean & Sober is deeply appreciative of the Mercy Volunteer Corps.
Mercy Volunteer Corps' Mission Statement:
In partnership with the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, lay women and men of Mercy Volunteer Corps (MVC), enter into relationship with people who are economically poor and marginalized. In a spirit of mutuality, volunteers cultivate mercy and justice in the world by embracing compassionate service, social justice, spirituality and a simple lifestyle in community.

AmeriCorps engages more than 80,000 Americans in intensive service each year at nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. Since the program’s founding in 1994, more than 800,000 AmeriCorps members have contributed more than 1 billion hours in service across America while tackling pressing problems and mobilizing millions of volunteers for the organizations they serve.
AmeriCorps programs do more than move communities forward; they serve their members by creating jobs and providing pathways to opportunity for young people entering the workforce. AmeriCorps places thousands of young adults into intensive service positions where they learn valuable work skills, earn money for education, and develop an appreciation for citizenship.
