Economic Opportunities in North Central New Mexico_Mora
MCEDC Community Development Coordinator VISTA Member will continue developing and coordinating volunteer matching services for nonprofit organizations that need volunteer support to achieve their mission. The Member will develop and catalog opportunities for volunteers to help with projects. They will develop and manage communication efforts in the community, while serving low-income individuals, working with groups such as Veteran’s Affairs, several commodity programs, the many assistance programs, Mora 4-H, and primarily, the Mora Arts and Cultural Compound who’ve sponsored and assist in coordinating many programs for youth and seniors. Mora’s large senior population (24% retirement rate vs national average of 14%) is largely living below or at poverty level. Most of the seniors do not take advantage of many available services. Connecting seniors with these services and volunteer opportunities will assist in a better quality of life on several levels. We expect that after one year the VISTA Member will have created a sustainable web-based volunteer matching program, an intake form, and most importantly, facilitate 50 volunteer matches above the 50 volunteers registered this past year. Our goal is $100,000 of donated time doubling the $49,000 recorded this past year and to have identified a way to track our success in bringing services to populations listed in poverty statistics.
