As AmeriCorps VISTA members, these national service members help build the capacity of member Catholic Charities to deliver "foundational services," services to low-income individuals along the entire spectrum of life: children, adults, elders, families, and communities. These foundational services include case management, adult and child literacy, employment assistance, mentorship, foster care, senior care, criminal justice ministries, health services, housing, food services, and more that address the unique needs of communities. Each AmeriCorps VISTA has a unique, structured VISTA Assignment Description (VAD) with the objectives of their service to be completed in one year, primarily focused on volunteer management, resource development, community engagement, and curriculum and mentorship development to help families achieve self-sufficiency.
