ConnectHome VISTA 2019: Providence
 
 
 
The ConnectHome VISTA program, facilitated by Serve New York, collaborates with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to close the digital divide, and extend affordable internet access to low-income families throughout the nation. AmeriCorps VISTA members working with ConnectHome build capacity in organizations, government agencies, and institutions focusing on expanding educational opportunities and ensuring economic opportunity. Members work behind-the-scenes at organizations to build capacity, create sustainability, and indirectly serve the organization and their clients. Typical VISTA responsibilities include: grant writing, community outreach, fund development, curriculum building, creating partnerships, program development and execution. While serving, members receive support from the VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY, Inc. The support includes monthly training, a social network of fellow members, and daily support from VISTA leaders.
