Help us House a VISTA Member!
You already know that sheltering those in need is what we come together for year after year.
In 2017, we are hoping to expand our mission’s reach through a new opportunity – the hosting of an AmeriCorps VISTA member.
Members of the AmeriCorps VISTA program are passionate, hard-working young individuals specifically trained to build the capacity of programs focused on eliminating poverty. Our member will commit to a year-long project with Habitat for Humanity, working to improve our ability to do what we do, and enable us to serve more families.
While VISTA members’ modest living allowance is supported by our partnership with the nationwide program, providing basic comforts to ensure our member’s comfort and success is part of Habitat Missoula’s piece of the program as an able host. We are reaching out to you in hope that through our wonderful “grapevine” of allies in the community, we can together provide the resources to make this possible. We need rent-free housing for our VISTA member from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.
In search of a house or pet-sitter for a few weeks or an extended period of time next year? Have an extra room available in an attic or basement, or know of someone who does? Let us fill the space with an extraordinary individual, and help us bring a new set of skills and strength to our mission here in Missoula. Please consider (and spread the word about) this exciting chance to connect with an amazing program and help struggling families – without having to “lift a hammer”!
