NeighborWorks VISTA, EANDC - Community Building VISTA
In 2019-2020, EANDC will work to increase the visibility and reach of the agency's Center for Homeownership (CFH), a HUD-certified counseling program that provides families with practical tools for achieving financial stability and buying a home. EANDC will revise its marketing of homeownership programs to more effectively reach potential clients. In addition, EANDC will strengthen collaboration between CFH and other agency programs in order to increase efficiency and multiply the overall impact of the agency's work. The Center for Homeownership will update its marketing plan and procedures to reflect shifts in target audiences and changes in the housing market. CFH will also better integrate its program offerings into the work of other programs at EANDC. CFH staff will tailor its financial fitness and homebuyer preparation curriculum to current tenants of EANDC's properties, helping them take a first step toward successful homeownership. In addition, CFH will collaborate with EANDC's neighborhood-based programs to promote its homeownership programs, as well. EANDC's Community Building program works with residents and stakeholders to organize neighborhood events and programming that reinforce a positive neighborhood identity on Akron's eastside. CFH will work with Community Building staff to grow the calendar of community events so that they can serve as a platform for promotion of CFH programming, as well. This will involve the coordination of volunteers from the community and partner organizations and financial institutions.
