AmeriCorps VISTA Member begins service at Opportunity Living!
Opportunity Living is excited to announce the arrival of our AmeriCorps VISTA Member, Community Liaison, Joshua Reed. Josh comes to us from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, and is making his home in Lake City.
AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) is a program of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency for volunteering, service, and civic engagement. CNCS engages millions of Americans in citizen service through its AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs and leads the nation’s volunteer and service efforts.
Joshua will serve Opportunity Living for 1- 2 years. He will build a structured volunteer program for Opportunity Living; he will research resources and opportunities for persons with disabilities to volunteer and he will assist with grant research and economic impact projects for Opportunity Living. Jayne Wilhelm said, “It is an honor to host an AmeriCorps Vista service member. Joshua is a perfect fit for Opportunity Living and will help us develop wonderful partnerships and opportunities. Please welcome Joshua as he ventures into our communities to learn more about Calhoun County and our Home and Community-Based Services program in Carroll.”
