Making a Difference: AmeriCorps VISTA

Housing Action Illinois manages the Illinois Affordable Housing Support Project, a network of nearly 30 AmeriCorps VISTAs placed with our member organizations.

AmeriCorps VISTA is a national service program designed specifically to end poverty, and our VISTA members commit to serve our communities full-time for a year. They fill a wide variety of roles, but all are aimed at ending poverty and helping communities by expanding and improving the availability of decent, affordable, accessible housing in Illinois.
