"Each year AmeriCorps members across the city take an oath to serve communities in need and Get Things Done. The AmeriCorps Emergency Fund will alleviate the burden of unpredictable financial emergencies that come up for AmeriCorps members. The fund will ensure that AmeriCorps members are supported as they work hard to meet the needs of our Philadelphia community."

Gerolly Lorenzo, Mayor’s Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service, Service Year Expansion Manager

The AmeriCorps Emergency Fund provides financial assistance to AmeriCorps members serving in Philadelphia who experience unexpected expenses that may impact their ability to successfully complete their term of service. Our goal is to maintain the health and safety of all AmeriCorps members throughout their service.
