The Skagit VISTA team helps achieve Community Action’s goal of helping people help themselves and each other by building infrastructure and capacity for programs that serve economically disadvantaged individuals across the county. The host for this project is the Housing Program of Community Action of Skagit County.

Housing Programs provide housing case management during the housing search, advocacy for clients moving in to their new homes and ongoing assistance for staying housed. Skagit County is nestled halfway between Seattle, WA and Vancouver, BC and just east of the San Juan Islands offering access to the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Fans of the outdoors will love our little corner of the world as hiking, kayaking, river rafting, and biking are a small selection of the popular activities with locals and visitors alike. In addition, our team is composed of both locally grown VISTAs and those who have traveled from out of state. Often our VISTAs spend time together outside of service hours, building a strong support network. This position comes with a living stipend of $1,025 per month and an education award of $6,095 or $1800 end of year stipend after a completion of a year of service.
