THN VISTA Coalition Coordinator (Grayson County)
 
 
 
The Texas Homeless Network (THN) works to provide solutions to end homelessness in Texas communities through education, resources and advocacy. Currently, THN has VISTA members placed throughout the state working on capacity building and program development to assist communities in ending homelessness. This VISTA project will build capacity to support the local coalition and the development of a Coordinated Entry (CE) system to better provide services for persons who experience homelessness. To achieve this goal, the VISTA member will primarily focus on strengthening partnerships and providing technical assistance to local homeless service organizations. The outcome will allow community partners to more effectively provide housing and other services to persons experiencing homelessness.
