Their mission is to develop vibrant communities through innovation and partnership; vital to accomplishing these goals is the engagement of a strong and diverse cohort of volunteers. Since 2006, CPDC has leveraged volunteer time and talent to address the critical needs surrounding health and wellness, education, environment, economy, and resident engagement to ensure that CPDC and communities grow and thrive together. CPDC is expanding its resident services from 30 sites to 100 over the next 3-5 years. To be successful, volunteers will become a more important part of expanding resident services across more sites. In 2019, the VISTA member will work to successfully integrate volunteers into the CPDC Network Demonstration Model (3-4 newly formed clusters of affordable housing properties) to add capacity in more affordable housing communities to support resident services and resident engagement.
