Baylor University-Hunger Free Community Corps VISTA-Houston

4.3 million Texans are food insecure, including 1 in 4 children. Individuals and organization across the state are working tirelessly to change this but don't have the time or resources to work together strategically. Hunger is a complex problem that cannot be solved by one single individual or organization, but coordination and collaboration takes time and effort and can be difficult, especially with limited resources. The Texas Hunger Initiative provides the expertise and support to foster collaboration. We convene, train, inform and support communities to assess local hunger, and evaluate barriers to food security, in order to become a Hunger Free Community. This is where the Baylor University Hunger Free Community Corps (HFCC) comes in. HFCC's mission is to help communities think strategically, organizations work collaboratively, and programs function efficiently. We're looking for individuals to be a part of our work to strengthen local community efforts, get people to work together, and affect large-scale, positive change. Because when we all come together, we create solutions that are greater than the sum of their parts.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
