Center for Vision Health VISTA Community Liaison Coordinator
 
 
 
The Center for Vision Health is a nonprofit vision clinic that focuses its efforts on children who have trouble seeing in school and on adults who are most at risk of age-related eyes diseases, which can lead to significant vision loss and blindness. We also provide low vision healthcare services. Our services include: • Eye exams for adults, seniors, and children. • Eyeglasses for adults, seniors, and children. • Low vision eye exams and visual assistive devices. The VISTA Community Liaison Coordinator will build on the organization’s community outreach strategy, increasing our visibility in the South Dallas community, leading to overall capacity building for the organization and breaking the cycle of poverty by providing access to essential vision healthcare to under-served populations in the southern sector. The VISTA will focus efforts on our new South Dallas Vision Clinic and through marketing and collaborating, build relationships with key stakeholders and partnerships with communities in the southern Dallas County area.
