The VISTA will develop and implement an expanded multi-community homeless service program with long-term supports, streamline access to social and financial capacity and develop a volunteer base focused on emergency shelter and housing interventions.

These focus areas build long-term solutions to existing anti-poverty programs by expanding community partnership and offering education to strengthen community networks of agencies and resources. The VISTA's role collaborates with ECHOS by helping with community outreach and coordination for the Winter Shelter, and work to develop volunteer base and engage students from Elizabethtown College's Center for Civic Engagement in the Winter Shelter.
