The 450+ refugees and immigrants served by CMC’s Adult Basic Education and Refugee & Immigrant Services Programs experience barriers to financial stability, including language, cultural, or educational barriers. The VISTA will improve efficiency and operations in the areas of food pantry coordination and management, client housing identification, volunteer screening, client transportation, and data management. As a result, CMC’s will be able to better support positive outcomes for clients.
