Wake County Grass Roots Support VISTA
The Grassroots Support VISTA will support several partners with specific projects. The goal is for a VISTA to support a small group of grassroots non-profits with key leverage points to move them into a place of more effective models with greater reach in the community. We believe that the organizations addressing root cause issues are integral to the sustainability and long-term success of our community development projects. Many organizations lack the space or time to manage a full-time VISTA member. Our intention is to support these organizations by supervising a VISTA member that can meet frequently with these partners and develop sustainable solutions for their future success.
