Communication Specialist and Content Creator VISTA 2021
HAPCAP, an anti-poverty nonprofit in Southeast Ohio, strives to mobilize resources that empower individuals to work towards self-sufficiency and an improved quality of life by providing a wide range of programs that meet the many needs and serve thousands of clients annually. A small sampling of these programs include: Meals on Wheels, Head Start/Early Head Start, Weatherization, Logan Public Transit, Energy Assistance Programs and Employment Programs. The Employment Programs at HAPCAP help individuals set and achieve employment and education goals by working with individuals to create a plan and address any barriers or challenges that are holding them back. We are now in an exciting period of growth and are searching for the right person to help us continue our plan for implementing changes and improvements to the Employment Programs in our Community Services division. The VISTA will help increase the capacity of the Employment Program’s ability to serve clients by developing promotional materials and helping us to tell our story more effectively in the community. This will allow us to recruit and serve more participants making an even bigger difference in our area. The VISTA will also continue to evaluate the quality of our current programming and will be working with staff to improve current/develop new programming as needed. Additionally, the VISTA will be collecting and organizing helpful community resources and recruiting volunteers to help us deliver our programming. The VISTA will be completing valuable work that will lay the foundation for implementation of improved programming in Hocking County and potential replication in other Southeast Ohio counties.
