*BMVP - VISTA Leader
 
 
 
The Community Development Division is a catalyst for joining community partners with resources to increase access to housing, to create a sustainable community, and to promote neighborhood revitalization. Of the over 18,000 individuals experiencing poverty in Yellowstone County, approximately 2,500 local citizens experience homelessness in Billings during the year. Over 700 individuals are homeless in Billings on any given day, including at least 120 families with children. In order to maintain momentum for homeless initiatives sponsored by the City of Billings - Community Development Division, staff created an AmeriCorps Volunteers In Service To America (VISTA) program known as the Billings Metro VISTA Project (B-MVP) in 2009; sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service. The B-MVP brings valuable resources to organizations fighting homelessness and poverty within the community; strengthening their service capacity and organizational viability for long-term poverty impact. Target populations include those experiencing poverty, with special emphasis on Veterans, American Indians, children and the disabled. To date, 267 VISTA members have engaged in service to build capacity for 56 local organizations in economic opportunity, healthy futures, education, and veterans / military focus areas. This project will impact poverty through the facilitation of projects designed to enhance services for agencies that assist community members in need. **Candidates must have completed a previous AmeriCorps or Peace Corps service term.**
