VHA - Community Services Housing Resource Development VISTA
Virginia Housing Alliance’s (VHA) AmeriCorps VISTA project is a statewide intermediary project with 18 Host Sites, all that either work to expand affordable housing opportunities and/or end homelessness throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. VHA’s VISTA project aims to develop viable communities by promoting integrated approaches that provide decent housing, suitable living environments, and expansive economic opportunities for low and moderate-income persons. This listing is to fill the Host Site opening at Community Services Housing Inc in Charlottesville, VA. Community Services Housing (CSH) develops, owns, and operates clean, safe, affordable housing for people in Charlottesville living with disabilities. The unique value of CSH is its deep commitment to resident-focused housing for people with disabilities with low incomes, combined with its expertise navigating the complex financing and compliance requirements necessary to create and sustain these essential community housing opportunities. CSH is looking for a detail oriented individual to act as the Resource Development VISTA member with the goal of strengthening CSH’s ability to better serve people in Charlottesville living with disabilities, providing folks with high-quality, low-barrier, affordable, responsive, and stable homes. The CSH VISTA member will improve equity in CSH’s training, policies, and procedures, research and implement best practices in housing for people living with disabilities, and increase awareness about CSH for fundraising, community engagement, and board development purposes.

Member Duties : The VISTA member will increase staff capacity and enhance organizational effectiveness through the development of a policies and procedures manual that incorporates a menu of mission-related learning resources on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), affordable housing, serving people with disabilities, and nonprofit operations. They will create a community outreach strategy with a schedule and implementation plan to raise awareness of CSH’s programs and services, gain new partners, and garner interest from potential board members. This communications plan also includes maintaining CHS’s public facing platforms such as their website, social media, Guidestar, and others. In addition, the VISTA will implement CSH’s Resource Development plan that involves analyzing resident surveys to identify service gaps and needs, and researching new funding opportunities to support solutions to the findings in the survey data, and grant writing.
