VISTA Outreach Coordinator
Catholic Charities of Buffalo
About the organization
Catholic Charities of Buffalo is the most comprehensive human service provider in Western New York, reaching all eight counties with 51 professionally staffed locations, plus a presence in many area schools and other community sites. Catholic Charities serves people in need and those who are most vulnerable without regard to age, race or religious affiliation.
Catholic Charities offers programs that strive to empower individuals, children and families. Among them are comprehensive counseling services for all ages, basic emergency assistance and referrals, child and adult mental health and chemical dependency treatment, educational and job readiness programs, older adult services, parish outreach and advocacy, marriage counseling, immigration and refugee assistance and a variety of programs that address prevention and treatment of a number of family issues.
The VISTA member will work collaboratively with our partners at the Mobile Safety Net Team to coordinate service Hubs in 3 communities, bringing together service providers in those areas and better advertise the available resources to the public. The member will also work on expanding the HUB model into other poor communities where services are not yet coordinated in one location for easy access. The member will expand the emergency services that Catholic Charities provides around Erie County by networking with similar providers and food pantries to better coordinate service delivery and assess areas of need that are not currently being met. From this needs assessment the member will work with the supervisor to develop a plan to meet the identified needs.
