Tremont West Community Development VISTA
The Tremont West VISTA project is focused on assisting the Tremont residents most in need. Tremont West chose to touch on three important goals that will address the health of our residents: connecting residents to employment, educating them on how to lower their energy consumption to lower their monthly expenses and housing counseling. Employment is often a first step to helping a person get out of poverty. The VISTA will take a grassroots approach to assisting under and un-employed residents find employment. There first needs to be an understanding of their needs and wants in finding employment. Tremont is robust with small businesses and a large hospital system. How can we build connections to help both residents and businesses? The Tremont West 2019 VISTA Project will be a great opportunity for a young professional interested in many aspects of community development. This opportunity will provide an individual exposure to working directly with the residents and businesses of Tremont. The year will include program development and implementation around employment access, housing counseling, and bringing energy and water efficiency into the homes of Tremont residents.
