About the organization

The Kansas City Public Library has been granted the opportunity by AmeriCorps to serve as an intermediary sponsor—The Library VISTA Project. As an intermediary, the Library partners with local organizations serving as AmeriCorps member host sites. AmeriCorps members provide a year of service, bringing their passion and perseverance where the need is greatest: to organizations that help eradicate poverty. Library VISTA Project members serve in a professional setting building partnerships, raising awareness, writing grants, organizing volunteers, and more.


Hope Faith AmeriCorps VISTA Member will work with members of the Resource Development Team (Director of Development and Part Time Grant Writer) to increase service capacity for those who are experiencing homelessness or are at-risk.
