Community Program Coordinator
Cook Inlet Housing Authority (CIHA) is supporting the recent launch of a recently remodeled community culture and arts hub, The Nave. The remodel is part of a larger initiative at CIHA to build affordable housing and new commercial spaces in the Spenard neighborhood. CIHA and The Nave have many existing strong community relationships, and these will serve as a starting point for the VISTA. Neighbors, artists who use the space, neighborhood representatives (community council, legislative, etc.), funders, social service agencies that serve the neighborhood, and neighborhood business owners are among some of our existing community supporters who have proven willing to help us connect with, and garner support from, the community in order to meet their needs.

Member Duties : The VISTA will have the essential role of developing relationships in the community and gathering feedback and input on uses of the building that make it a useful, engaging, and inviting space for surrounding neighbors. The Nave is intended to be a community and cultural hub, and we can't succeed in making it so without building relationships and learning what the neighborhood wants from the space. The VISTA will help to ensure the space is a sustainable center for economic empowerment, vitality, and inclusion for the Spenard neighborhood moving forward. In addition, our ideas about an Advisory Council for The Nave have morphed over the course of the year as we've seen how the relaunch of the initiative has evolved. Next year we will likely move forward with creating this Council, and the VISTA will have a hand in recruiting, organizing, launching, and guiding this Council along with our Community Engagement Coordinator.
