We are a volunteer connector and coordinator organization and volunteer host site!
The role of neighborhood outreach began in 2010 where I was responsible for a variety of outreach and volunteer activities through direct interaction with neighborhood associations, residents and community stakeholders. Over the course of the last 5 years, we have grown from 6 to 15 neighborhood associations, representing the entire city, north, south, east and west. The office has grown as has the roles and responsibilities. We know serve as the city lead on initiating and implementation of all Community Development priorities related to neighborhood revitalization, housing and civic engagement.
The City of Fall River offers volunteer opportunities in Community Outreach as well as Governmental Operations. As the Chief Service Officer I interact with our network of neighborhood associations, host a weekly AM radio show on WSAR geared towards community outreach/civic engagement and work directly with all of our Department Heads to facilitate volunteer opportunities.
