Alliance VISTA: Coconino County Community Services
The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits is a statewide unifying organization formed in 2004 to advance the common interests of more than 20,000 nonprofits in the Grand Canyon State. The Alliance aims to connect nonprofits to each other and the community, grow the impact of the nonprofit sector and amplify the voice of nonprofits throughout Arizona. Through a grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Alliance has the opportunity to partner with local organizations throughout the state to coordinate AmeriCorps*VISTA projects. This specific VISTA project is with Coconino County Community Services in Flagstaff, AZ. Coconino County Community Services (CCCS) is designated as a Community Action Agency (CAA) and has been fighting poverty in northern Arizona for over forty years. CCCS is the county’s leading safety net providing case management services integrated with financial assistance and training to the low income community. Through case management, CCCS provides coordination of services through referrals including financial coaching classes, housing assistance which includes eviction prevention, move-in/mortgage assistance, utility assistance, food box and clothing referrals, outreach and enrollment services for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and housing rehabilitation.
