Volunteer and Resource Coordinator at EECRC
The goal of the VISTA project is to create systems that will make it easier and more efficient to provide services to members of the Ethiopian & Eritrean community. Our organization helps a wide range of demographics including elders, women, and children, many who have come as refugees or asylees. With their transition to the United States, many require assistance to navigate different systems of housing, healthcare, and education. Our organization helps them with these services by filling applications, researching programs, providing funds, and so forth. Thus, the VISTA assigned to the resource coordinator position will be in charge of finding and managing resources, programs, and services that will assist community members. The goal of the project is to create better efficiency so that a larger number of community members will be helped and informed.
