Member Duties : The Independent Health Foundation (IHF) was founded in 1992 by the Independent Health Association as a nonprofit organization to create community programs that engage residents in healthy lifestyle behaviors. Areas of focus include under served and at-risk populations whose access to health care and social services are limited. In 2017, IHF reached over 400,000 Western New York residents through its signature programs, community initiatives, and events. The AmeriCorps VISTA member will be responsible for creating a framework in the Good for The Neighborhood Turnkey program to effectively establish partnerships and implement sustainable programs in under served areas. The ultimate goal of the VISTA will be to establish sustainability and build capacity within the Turnkey program, as well as assist impoverished and at-risk residents in Western New York with obtaining the health and wellness services they need to overcome the social and economic barriers they currently face.
