Tina Foster VISTA

Project Description


Tina has joined the ECC Program in a capacity building role as a VISTA and coordinates the recruitment of veterans for the VCC initiative by expanding partnerships with agencies that serve veterans.  Tina comes to SI with extensive nonprofit program and volunteer management experience.

VISTA’s purpose is to supplement efforts to fight poverty in low-income communities by engaging Americans from all walks of life in a year of full-time service. VISTA members support the program’s purpose through three primary objectives: 1) encouraging volunteer service at the local level, 2) generating the commitment of private sector resources, and 3) strengthening local agencies and organizations that serve low-income communities.
