Emergency financial agency needs assistant: Help families who are requesting emergency financial help by gathering and evaluating information, creating a case plan and case file and entering notes into a database. Good organizational and multitasking skills are required, along with experience with Microsoft Office. Candidates must be 18 or older, pass a background check and qualify for a Department of Public Safety fingerprint clearance card.

Deliver meals: Give a spark to someone's day with a smile, a cheery hello and a meal. A northwest-side agency needs your help delivering meals to homes.
