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 promote financial and housing stability by developing an employment navigation program and coordinating efforts between the local CoC and the local Workforce Development board and develop resources for people experiencing homelessness to find employment.
