At Salt Lake County Housing and Community Development (HCD) we support individuals and families to be healthy, live in healthy places, and have expanded opportunities by responsibly and responsively deploying resources to organizations in Salt Lake County. HCD has been in the business of serving and impacting the lives of people who are experiencing poverty for over 35 years.
Salt Lake County HCD is seeking VISTA members to be part of our team as we develop and implement the "System Navigator" Pilot Program. The System Navigator program is a new initiative by Salt Lake County which will leverage the case management that is provided within individual social service programs, by giving client beneficiaries access to and control of their own client record, allowing them to "own their own story". The game-changer of this program is that Salt Lake County will facilitate the technology that will allow the beneficiaries of human services resources to connect their own data, goals, and documents to the applications, services and programs that they trust. It is believed that the tool will help pave many pathways out of poverty, making the journey smoother and faster.
Successful implementation will also provide meaningful data for stakeholders related to the effectiveness of interventions, which will generate the information needed for data driven decision making. The time and talent of VISTA volunteers that is dedicated to informing the development of this pivotal tool will empower recipients of social services to take charge of their own journey towards self-reliance. VISTA's will have the opportunity to significantly contribute to a permanent change in the way that people in poverty are able to engage in the services which are available to them. VISTA members will be part of the core team that conducts the groundwork and lays the foundation for the system, as well as implements, operationalizes and evaluates it during the critical first three years of development.
