Virginia Housing Alliance Communications and Outreach VISTA
Virginia Housing Alliance’s (VHA) AmeriCorps VISTA project is a statewide intermediary project with 17 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 at Virginia Housing Alliance located in Richmond, VA. The Virginia Housing Alliance (VHA) works to expand housing opportunities and ending homelessness in the Commonwealth through advocacy, education, and capacity building. The alliance encompasses a full spectrum of housing organizations and individuals, offers educational, professional development and networking opportunities for members, a collective advocacy presence, and resource and programmatic support. Every year, VHA hosts two statewide conferences and numerous educational forums to educate housing providers on emerging trends and best practices. VHA is looking for a driven and team oriented individual to serve as the VHA Communication and Outreach VISTA to develop targeted communications strategies that aim to increase membership engagement, identify new funders, and expand VHA’s statewide partnerships. By assessing VHA’s current outreach strategies and membership program, the VISTA will enhance the organization’s ability to share best practices in the affordable housing sector as well as strengthen the housing affordability community throughout the Commonwealth.
