LSA Community Resilience Building VISTA Program

The LSA’s Community Resilience Building VISTA Program is part of a new proactive, holistic, and measurable approach that builds upon the existing social services offered by local social service organizations that affect key resilience levers. The goal is to help low-income communities better withstand and recover from a continuum of disruptions from small to large such as home fires, economic crisis, extreme weather events, or human-caused disasters.

LSA and its members are part of a select number of organizations invited to collaborate in the Corporation for National and Community Services Resilience AmeriCorps initiative and will sponsor eight AmeriCorps VISTA members to improve community resilience in low-income and vulnerable communities in Austin, TX (Upbring); Columbia, SC (Lutheran Services Carolinas); Fargo, ND (Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota); St. Louis, MO (Lutheran Family and Children’s Services of Missouri); St. Paul, MN (Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota); and Fort Thompson, SD (Lutheran social Services of South Dakota), with LSA headquarters in Washington D.C. serving as the host for the VISTA project lead.
