Location and Job Title:

Diaper Bank Coordinator
Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine
1342 Congress St
Portland, ME 04102

Principal Responsibilities:

For nearly 100 years, Michael Klahr Jewish Family Services has offered assistance, comfort, and hope to the Jewish community and to all those seeking support in Southern Maine. Through programs designed to meet compelling and immediate needs, KJFS demonstrates the commitment to gemilut chasadim (acts of loving kindness) in the service of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Existing safety-net programs (such as SNAP and WIC) do not support the purchase of diapers, and diaper need is a growing challenge throughout the country. In 2016, recognizing the severity of the issue locally, KJFS joined the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN), becoming the first and largest diaper bank in Southern Maine. For many years, we partnered with up to 14 agencies to distribute diapers around Cumberland and York counties. Today, our volunteers help to provide diapers every other month to over 400 clients, in partnership with Maine Health. Our current distribution strategy engages volunteers to deliver diapers directly to the homes of half our client list, while the other half is able to pick up at the JCA on a series of pre-determined dates throughout the month. We are actively looking for a dedicated individual to join our Diaper Bank team and oversee the distribution logistics that are crucial to meeting this essential need.
