FutureHeights Community Outreach VISTA
The VISTA will create a comprehensive marketing strategy for FutureHeights, which will lead to the dissemination of information regarding FutureHeights programs, services and activities to all community members. It will also lead to the dissemination of information on various city, county, nonprofit and other public services and programs available to the public in an effort to better connect residents to resources with the goal of helping build stability amongst individuals and families, and providing overall assistance toward a better quality of life for residents. Additionally, FutureHeights collected information from several service providers in the region and city to compile a list of all of the various services and programs available to Cleveland Heights residents. Often times there is a gap between service providers and constituents, and navigating the processes of accessing various programs and benefits. The VISTA would create a strategy and process for circulating the resource guides to our residents, and work toward eliminating barriers for accessing resources and services in the community. The long-term goal is neighborhood stabilization for our target neighborhoods, and the city as a whole. This project and process will also allow FutureHeights to learn about the community’s needs, and what gaps in services and programs exist within the community.
