Description

The Homeless and Housing Coalition of Kentucky's Homes for All VISTA program strives to end the threat of homelessness in Kentucky. VISTA members do this by recruiting volunteers and increasing the capacity of local nonprofit partner agencies. VISTA members will provide unique services that will enable agencies to increase funding, community support, and sustainable services to low-income Kentuckians. VISTA activities include volunteer recruitment, fundraising, community marketing and outreach, and educational program development. VISTA members must be at least 18 years of age, US citizens, nationals or legal residents. Successful applicants will pass a criminal background check, be committed to serving a year of full-time service with the project, have a passion for combatting poverty, have the ability to work independently and as a part of a team, be computer and social media proficient, be comfortable with public speaking, and a willingness to learn grant writing and fundraising skills. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are a must. The VISTA Leader will assist in developing and conducting orientation and training to equip VISTAs with knowledge and skills related to the project, enhance VISTA project and member effectiveness, and work towards project stability and sustainability. Benefits include: living allowance, end of year education or cash award upon successful completion of the program, healthcare, relocation allowance, training, networking, support, childcare assistance for those that qualify, and mileage reimbursement. The VISTA Leader position will receive housing assistance. For more information, please contact Caitlin Szabo at cszabo@hhck.org
