HomeFront Resource Network VISTA Summer Associate
 
 
 
The HomeFront Resource Network exists to connect families in poverty with the items they need to live lives with dignity. The Resource Network consists of two ongoing and several pop-up food pantries, a Diaper Resource Center that distributes diapers, wipes, and feminine hygiene products, our Furnish the Future program that provides gently used furniture to families moving into independent housing, two FreeStore locations where families can access clothing, housewares, linens, and appliances free of charge, and more. The Resource Network Summer Associates will work to provide these items to HomeFront families by harnessing the caring and resources of our community.
