Ettie Lee is joining David & Margaret Youth and Family Services in a combined effort to fight homelessness in the Transitional Age Youth population, many of whom have a history in the foster care system. The proposed VISTA project aligns with the Economic Opportunity focus area. The VISTA project will seek to leverage resources, increase effectiveness, create linkages in the community and scale our programs in an effort to decrease poverty and homeless. We expect to benefit an estimated 2,000 community members throughout the three years. Four VISTA members at David & Margaret Youth and Family Serviced and Three at Ettie Lee will contribute to the goals of the project by performing the following activities fundraising, outreach and recruitment, technology development, program design, and building awareness through social media and other communication platforms.
