St. Joseph Center of Arkansas VISTA Member

St. Joseph Center of Arkansas (SJCA or SJ) seeks to 1) become a self-sustaining farm in order to help address issues of food security for under-served populations; 2) provide classroom and hands-on education for children and adults in all phases of food/livestock production so they can help themselves with food security, and 3) preserve and restore the 63-acre farm and 56,000-SF historical building as a symbol of our commitment to serve families and children who need our help.


Joseph Center (SJCA) has operated since 2009 as a primarily volunteer-run organization. In order to develop revenue streams to help support our mission and programming, additional staff and administrative help is needed. Capacity building in the areas of marketing, development, and communication are critical to the operation.

Specifically, a VISTA will contribute to 1) communicating and promoting available programs, 2) recruiting and tracking volunteers, and 3) increasing the donor base in order to have greater impact in addressing community needs.

Manuals to track volunteers and donor information will be created with instructions on how to maintain and update this data. The VISTA will have the opportunity to coordinate with Full Circle FarmCorps (an AmeriCorps program founded and housed at SJCA) in their efforts to provide a garden-based cooking and nutrition program, "Growing My Plate", by helping identify potential participants and promotion of this opportunity to the community.
