2018-2019 Housing Forward Community Outreach Liaison VISTA
Since 1992, Housing Forward has been a safety net for those that are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We are committed to providing inventive crisis resolutions while working with likely and unconventional stakeholders to find innovative, structural solutions. In 2015, we broadened our focus and strengthened our partnerships in leading Entry Point, a coordinated effort that standardizes and expedites the process for those needing resources and services. The VISTA member will be critical in coordinating the provision of these resources more efficiently. With the goal to engage the local and regional stakeholders in the mission to end homelessness, the VISTA will act as a bridge with community stakeholders.
