AmeriCorps VISTA - Rural Capacity Building Project
The Community Resource Center (CRC) supports opportunities for community development by providing access to resources for nonprofit leaders in rural Colorado. More than 5,000 nonprofits operate within the eight regions and 52-counties considered rural in our state. They play an important role in improving the quality of life in Colorado's communities and provide services to address human needs, such as food for the hungry, transitional housing and poverty alleviation. To build the capacity of rural nonprofits to better address the key factors that influence poverty in our communities, we are providing a limited number of AmeriCorps VISTA members to our nonprofit partners across the state.
The goals of the Rural Capacity Building Project include:
-- Nonprofits and community groups in rural Colorado grow in organizational capacity and gain additional resources to accomplish their missions.
-- VISTA members have a positive experience during which they increase in ability and gain valuable insight for future studies and employment.
-- Persistent poverty in rural Colorado is reduced.
