Are you or someone you know dedicated to making lasting change in the community? By joining VHA’s AmeriCorps VISTA Project, you can!

The George Washington Regional Commission (GWRC) and the Virginia Housing Alliance (VHA) are excited to announce the availability of a fulltime AmeriCorps VISTA member position to support local efforts to end homelessness in the City of Fredericksburg and Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania, and Stafford Counties. GWRC is looking for a qualified, dedicated applicant to serve and build capacity within the Fredericksburg Regional Continuum of Care (CoC). This will be the third VISTA that the CoC has hosted for this project. Building on the wonderful work of the past and current VISTAs, the VISTA member will work locally and with other VISTA members placed across the state to provide the human capital necessary to support the transition to a sustainable and more effective homelessness response system, while engaging in the causes of and solutions to homelessness.
