VHA - RA Community and Donor Engagement VISTA
Virginia Housing Alliance’s (VHA) AmeriCorps VISTA project is a statewide intermediary project with 18 Host Sites, all that either work to expand affordable housing opportunities and/or end homelessness throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. VHA’s VISTA project aims to develop viable communities by promoting integrated approaches that provide decent housing, suitable living environments, and expansive economic opportunities for low and moderate-income persons. This listing is to fill the Host Site opening at Renovation Alliance located in Roanoke, VA. Renovation Alliance (RA) is a non-profit organization that brings together volunteers and communities to provide free, critical home repairs for low-income homeowners with a priority focus on households with persons who are over the age of 65, living with a disability, veterans and surviving spouses, and single-parent households with small children. One in three homeowners in the Roanoke Valley are housing cost burdened meaning that costly home repairs and maintenance are out of reach. Renovation Alliance provides critical and necessary repair services to rebuild a safe and healthy living environment in order to help stabilize individuals and families in their homes. Renovation Alliance is seeking a motivated, creative, and detail-oriented individual to serve as the Community and Donor Engagement VISTA and grow its individual donor and volunteer base, thus increasing its capacity to serve homeowners in need of critical and necessary home repairs in the Roanoke Valley.
