AmeriCorps VISTA Volunteers to Work with NeighborWorks Organizations in Local Communities

NeighborWorks America announces its sponsorship of one of the largest AmeriCorps VISTA programs to date: up to 168 VISTA volunteers will be sponsored by 67 local NeighborWorks organizations in 35 states.

The VISTA volunteers will work in local communities to reduce the rate of foreclosure, strengthen areas hard hit by the recession and foreclosure crisis, and bolster financial fitness and asset building among low- and moderate-income homeowners and renters.

All VISTA volunteers will be in place by September 30, 2009 and each will complete one full year of service.
