Community Engagement AmeriCorps VISTA at WHAM
West Houston Assistance Ministries
About the organization
West Houston Assistance Ministries is a 501 c3 non profit agency providing social services to all eligible individuals regardless of their faith or background. We do not offer assistance to those in need based on the expressed or implied condition that they must adhere to or convert to a particular faith, or that they have to listen to, or respond to messaging of any particular faith. We are generous to our neighbors as God is generous to us, and as such, help those who are struggling in as much as we are able to, so that they can regain self-sufficiency.
As a Community Engagement VISTA, you will receive professional development training, tools, and an education award! The Community Engagement VISTA will play a vital role in developing and implementing an engagement plan that will build West Houston Assistance Ministries' capacity to serve the low-income-low literacy adult population. The VISTA will increase community engagement through strengthening communications strategies, defining audiences and constituencies to deliver impactful and engaging messages, participating in community events and meetings, and staying abreast of advocacy initiatives both on national and local levels. Through these activities the VISTA will mobilize local resources to increase the capacity of adult literacy programs to build lasting solutions to poverty.
