'20-'21 Community Connection Coordinator VISTA
We strongly believe at Quixote Village that everyone deserves safe and affordable housing. We work to provide housing for our community members experiencing homelessness in Thurston County, Washington. We are a tiny home village that offers communal living with rich peer mentorship and support. Our organization works side-by-side with residents to help them reach their individual goals and to connect them with various community services. Our houses are economically efficient, costing less than half of what it costs to build the average apartment. We also leave a smaller footprint with our simple, 144 square-foot homes. But the most rewarding part of it all is that our residents are no longer homeless. Housing is a primary need, first and foremost. Once residents are housed, they are then able to work on other aspects of their lives such as education, employment, substance use, physical health and mental health. This is no easy feat. Our residents are resilient survivors and we see their successes here every day.

Member Duties : This project fights poverty as it aims to identify and leverage the resources needed for Quixote Village to support the residents in remaining housed and making progress as they move out of their previous life living unsheltered in Thurston County. The VISTA will build capacity for Quixote Village to recruit, coordinate, track and acknowledge donors and volunteers. This will improve access to and availability of basic necessities, build a stronger community by developing regular resident events and increase the financial stability of the organization. By building the necessary tools, the VISTA will create systems to improve the services Quixote Village provides and thrive in our purpose long-term. The VISTA will be a member of United Way of Thurston County’s VISTA team, made up of 19 other VISTA members and supported by the VISTA Leader, who coordinates professional development opportunities, provides individualized support and resources, and supports the program’s success.
