Virginia Housing Alliance - Carpenter's Shelter VISTA
Virginia Housing Alliance’s (VHA) VISTA project is a statewide project that works to expand affordable housing opportunities and 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. Carpenter’s Shelter offers a comprehensive continuum of care through continuous services, aiding the chronically homeless, and sheltering residents throughout their transition back into independent living. They empower clients to address the issues which led them to homelessness and provide them with the tools necessary to achieve lasting independence. The Carpenter’s Shelter VISTA member will work to expand services, improve data collecting methods, and increase developmental capacity by designing data-driven tools to measure programmatic outcomes. The VISTA member will also be responsible for developing, implementing and documenting the systems for Carpenter’s Shelter’s new purpose-built shelter to develop sustainable organizational standards and procedures.
