Celebrating our 35th year, our agency addresses housing and other barriers which impact the ability to live healthy and happy lives. We prioritize women and families and work collaboratively with many other agencies to provide meaningful solutions. Our programs include emergency residential shelter providing safe housing and supportive services for up to 90 days, transitional housing with supportive services and financial assistance for up to 24 months, 32 permanent housing units, Free Store which is open to the community, and we are also working to open a new emergency shelter in a neighboring city this summer. The VISTA will fill our need to develop volunteer and outreach programming. The VISTA will gain valuable experience with the variety of programs and activities that we have, in working with our partner agencies, exploring opportunities for growth or change, and working with our team to strengthen our infrastructure and plan for our future. Creating awareness has been a considerable focus in the past year and envision that the VISTA will play an important role in our outreach plan, which is tied to our developing communications plan.

VIEW JOBS 3/13/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-06-11T00:00 Open Door Health Center (ODHC) is a non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center with a mission of advancing access to quality, affordable, culturally appropriate care through collaborative, patient-centered medical, dental, and behavioral health services for all people across southern Minnesota. Our primary and preventive care services are uniquely targeted toward low-income, underserved individuals. The VISTA will work with individuals both within and outside the organization for the purpose of developing and strengthening initiatives aimed at increasing access to our primary and preventative care services. The VISTA will also work closely with ODHC's Enrollment Department which assists individuals in exploring options in, and gaining access to, health insurance coverage through the MNsure Health insurance marketplace—including renewals and follow-up for Federal, State, and private insurance plans. Additionally, the VISTA will work closely with the Outreach Coordinator to increase program stability through providing community feedback to ODHC leadership, developing systems to increase task efficiency and effectiveness, and researching potential funding sources to meet the needs caused by defined financial constraints. ---This project is part of the College Health Corps (CHC) VISTA Program, operated by Minnesota Campus Compact.
