HCDNNJ Homelessness Prevention and Community Outreach VISTA
 
 
 
The State of New Jersey recognized the challenges created by the COVID -19 pandemic and several emergency moratoriums were put into place. All evictions for nonpayment of rent or mortgage were halted which diminished the immediate threat of thousands of people becoming homeless during the pandemic. In addition, the State and other financial assistance programs were able to provide some temporary relief that assisted renters, homeowners and some assistance to small landlords. Unfortunately when the moratoriums end it will be even more critical that NJ residents are aware of their legal options, be able to identify assistance programs and other supportive services. It will be vital that community based organizations and related affiliates are able to develop and implement strategic outreach to advocate and provide needed support to avoid homelessness when possible and other supportive services. HCDNNJ’s AmeriCorps VISTA members will work in conjunction with senior staff and our members which includes non-profit, public and private partners to expand exposure and strengthen organizational capacity. Our AmeriCorps VISTA members will also receive customized training, support, professional development, and networking opportunities throughout their year of service.
