The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty (the “Law Center”) is the only national legal advocacy organization dedicated solely to using the power of the law to end and prevent homelessness in the United States. Partnering with pro bono attorneys, we bring high impact litigation; lead and support national, state and local advocacy campaigns; and educate providers, advocates and the public. Our work creates homes and communities for people experiencing homelessness, improves access to housing for domestic violence survivors, secures education rights for children experiencing homelessness, and protects human rights and dignity by challenging laws that criminalize homelessness.
Goal of the Project: This VISTA project will increase the number of communities using right to housing solutions to end and prevent homelessness, promote understanding among audiences of the harm of policies that criminalize homelessness, and uphold the educational rights of children currently experiencing homelessness. Dozens of communities, in at least 10- 15 state and/or local jurisdictions, will benefit from our campaign goals related to housing and education issues. VISTA volunteers will contribute to the goals of the project by performing activities such as database design and tracking, developing our network and building organizational capacity to extend beyond the campaign.
Objective of the Assignment: The Data Integration VISTA member will improve the sustainability and capacity of the Law Center’s data and information management tools and practices, with a focus on implementation planning to integrate the disparate database systems into a single cohesive information system across all functional areas within the Law Center.
Outcomes & Deliverables:
There are numerous other benefits associated with AmeriCorps, including travel stipends, health coverage, and special hiring status for federal employment after the completion of the service year. The VISTA volunteer will also receive a free fitness center membership through the Law Center.
