After honoring the last graduating Americorps members of Silicon Valley HealthCorps, The Health Trust is excited to announce its transition to Silicon Valley Health Corps VISTA and to introduce our 5 new VISTA (Volunteers In Service to America) members. They will be working with us and our partner organizations for the next 3 years on this program.
With support from the Corporation for National and Community Service, each VISTA
member will build the organizational capacity at their sites in order to increase the effectiveness of reaching those in need and increasing access to healthy foods in low-income areas. Specifically, members will develop and/or improve internal systems, such as volunteer training and management, client outreach, fundraising, and data tracking at 5 organizations, including The Health Trust, Second Harvest Food Bank, Garden to Table, Veggielution and La Mesa Verde.
The Health Trust is excited and eager to support the impact these VISTAS will have with our partnering organizations.
