TSC VISTA 2021: Independent Health Foundation
The Service Collaborative (TSC) VISTA Program mobilizes AmeriCorps VISTA members to function in organizations, government agencies and educational institutions. Members focus on expanding educational opportunities, ensuring economic opportunity for all and creating healthy futures for the residents of low-income communities. Our goals are to strengthen communities across the state and to allow organizations within them to better provide services to impoverished individuals and families. The Service Collaborative VISTA program has partner organizations in New York State and across the country. During their term of service members, will receive support from our VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY. Our support includes monthly trainings, a social network of fellow members and daily support from VISTA Leaders.

Member Duties : The Good For The Neighborhood (GFTN) Program brings health awareness training and tools to people in at-risk and underserved neighborhoods. We believe that access to healthcare, primary care, and health literacy are not only consequences of poverty, but also causes. GFTN VISTA will be responsible for enhancing the impact of the Turn-key program to effectively leverage existing partnerships, establish new relationships, and implement sustainable programs. The goal of the VISTA will be to establish sustainability and build capacity within the Turn-key program, as well as assist impoverished and at-risk residents in Western New York with obtaining the health and wellness services they need to overcome the social and economic barriers they currently face. The VISTA will be responsible for the establishment of new program components, coordinating grant writing sessions for GFTN host sites, and leading a Turn-key site coordinator working group.
