TSC VISTA 2022: 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 : Independent Health Foundation (IHF) was founded to create community programs that engage residents in healthy lifestyle behaviors. IHF has focused on meeting the needs of the community. Areas of focus include underserved and at-risk populations whose access to health care and social services are limited. The AmeriCorps VISTA will be responsible for enhancing the impact of the Good for the Neighborhood (GFTN) Turn-key program. The ultimate 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. Specific examples of capacity building actions may include, but are not limited to, the establishment of new program components, coordinating grant writing sessions for GFTN host sites, and leading a Turn-key site coordinator working group.
