BEMIDJI — In response to a growing housing crisis, AmeriCorps is looking for four housing navigators in the Bemidji area to serve with its Heading Home Corps.

These AmeriCorps members will serve part-time and full-time to help people access resources, develop action plans and build skills to find and keep secure housing.

To serve as a navigator, applicants must be at least 18 years old, have a high school diploma or equivalent, and be willing to commit to a year of service. Navigators go through extensive training and receive a stipend every two weeks comparable to $15 an hour alongside an additional $3,247 to go toward student loans or tuition.

Free individual health insurance and child care assistance are also available. Anyone interested is encouraged to visit and apply by Dec. 14. Navigators will begin serving in January 2023.
