Description

New Directions’ mission is to develop and maintain affordable housing and vital communities in partnership with neighborhoods and other stakeholders. The goal of the VISTA project is to break the cycle of poverty by increasing community engagement and awareness of our programs in order to allow low-income elderly and disabled homeowners to age in place. The VISTA will increase the reach of our programs by recruiting volunteers to complete critical home repairs and identifying eligible program participants. The project will also leverage program and outcomes and impacts to diversify funding sources, which will ensure long-term sustainability towards affordable housing.
