Job Description 

The Neighbor Care Navigator serves as the first point of contact for all families interested in our 2 Gen Programming. The navigator speaks directly with the person and their families to determine what services might be needed and then guides them to the right programming area. 


The Martha O’Bryan Center (MOBC) empowers children, youth, and adults in poverty, to transform their lives through work, education, employment, and fellowship. The Center cannot service the community alone, so we partner with organizations like AmeriCorps, to fulfill our mission. AmeriCorps members serve 1700 hours over the course of 11 months with Martha O’Bryan Center, gaining hands-on experience working with families, youth, and community members. The crucial components of the MOBC—AmeriCorps years of service program allow you to build your community and professional skills, thereby propelling you towards the next steps in your career and life.
