TSC VISTA 2020: ConnectHome Madison
 
 
 
The Service Collaborative (TSC) VISTA Program mobilizes AmeriCorps VISTA members to function in organizations, government agencies and educational institutions. Members focus on expanding educational opportunities, ensuring economic opportunity for all and creating healthy futures for the residents of low income communities. Our goals are to strengthen communities across the state and to allow organizations within them to better provide services to impoverished individuals and families. The Service Collaborative VISTA program has partner organizations in New York State and across the country. During their term of service members will receive support from our VISTA team at The Service Collaborative of WNY. Our support includes monthly trainings, a social network of fellow members and daily support from VISTA leaders.

Member Duties : The Madison Community Development Authority (CDA) provides affordable housing to nearly 3,000 households throughout the City of Madison, Wisconsin. CDA aims to ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing; create opportunities for residents’ self-sufficiency and economic independence; and assure fiscal integrity by all program participants. As a new member of the ConnectHome community, CDA aims to lower the digital divide in HUD assisted housing by increasing the number of residents that are computer literate and have internet access. The VISTA will work individually and in collaboration with the ConnectHome project team to research and apply for funding opportunities, develop partnerships to obtain free or low cost devices, develop a communications toolkit in collaboration with the City IT department, develop a new digital literacy program with a focus on financial literacy, and participate on the ConnectHome project team in order to help coordinate project activities as necessary.
