AmeriCorps is a network of three programs—AmeriCorps National Direct, AmeriCorps VISTA, and AmeriCorps National Civilian
Community Corps (NCCC)— that each year support the engagement of nearly 75,000 Americans in service to meet critical needs in education, the environment, public safety, homeland security, and other areas. Since 1994, nearly 500,000 AmeriCorps members have
served with thousands of nonprofits, public agencies, and faith-based organizations nationwide.


Each year, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Miami welcomes AmeriCorps members to South Florida, where they help create home ownership opportunities for low income families in Miami-Dade County. In 2013, Miami Habitat has been fortunate enough to have representatives from all three AmeriCorps branches – National Direct, VISTA, and NCCC – working on building homes and strengthening communities.
