ASHF, Grants & Compliance Coordinator
The VISTA will serve on ASHF’s Grants Management team, working alongside the Grants department to pursue and conduct prospect research of various funding opportunities, maintain database of current and potential funders, and coordinate meetings with programmatic staff to determine grant funding priorities to further support operations of ASHF’s programming efforts. The VISTA will serve as part of an intra-agency team studying and refining A Safe Haven Foundation’s model. The project is intended to identify and systematize best practices and update agency policies and procedures to reflect the most recent evidence-based recommendations for substance use social service care provision. This will allow ASHF to effectively scale its services and better serve homeless individuals in Chicago — particularly those at high-risk for opioid addiction — ultimately helping them transition out of poverty by creating greater access to treatment and other services.
