2017 Spanish Coalition for Housing
The mission of the Spanish Coalition for Housing (SCH) is to provide comprehensive counseling, education and housing resources necessary for Latinos and other -low-to-moderate income families in the Chicagoland area, develop competence and responsibility in meeting their financial and housing needs, and to advocate for and proactively promote additional resources for them. The VISTA will build off of the program development plan/toolkit and recommendations of the prior year’s VISTA with a particular focus on defining SCH’s volunteer needs, skills and opportunities across the organization, reviewing and identifying best practices in volunteer management programs (both locally and nationally) segmenting volunteer categories/target partners, markets and developing a plan of implementation and sustainability. Through this project, the VISTA will better position Spanish Coalition for Housing to strategically identify resources, value added opportunities to increase organizational capacity to address affordable housing preservation, creation, maintenance and household asset development.
