Program Associate VISTA- Pohlad Family Foundation- C3TC
The Pohlad Family Foundation is a private foundation that has contributed more than $150 million in grants toward improving quality of life in the Twin Cities since 1998. The Pohlad Family Foundation recently established a strategic focus on housing stability with the goal to prevent and end homelessness amongst families and youth in the Twin Cities 7-County metropolitan area. The Foundation will implement its new focus starting in 2018 through four broad strategies: -Homelessness prevention: catching youth and families before they experience homelessness by addressing their immediate needs. This includes work such as eviction prevention, helping youth transition out of the foster care system, amongst other efforts. -Housing affordability: identifying and funding solutions that improve housing affordability for extremely low-income families and youth. -Systems change: strengthening and participating in coalitions to address larger systemic change, recognizing that homelessness cannot be solved by programs working independently or by philanthropy alone. -Creating awareness and galvanizing support: we will become a powerful voice for change – shining a light on the issues and championing the solutions. **This position is part of the C3 Twin Cities VISTA Program. C3 Twin Cities offers a unique cohort experience rooted in a social justice framework. It also offers $300 of monthly housing support, transportation support, access to gym facility and professional development opportunities. Check out for more details.
