We can help nonprofits and government agencies!

Do you know of an organization that wants to build sustainable change?

The Families in Transition (FIT) VISTA (Volunteer in Service to America) Program seeks applications from not-for-profit and government agencies throughout New Hampshire that are interested in becoming a host site for a professional AmeriCorps VISTA during the 2018-2019 program year.

A VISTA host site benefits from a VISTA volunteer by receiving the support of a full-time staff member without the high cost of salary and benefits. Watch this short video to hear what some of our current and past host sites have to say about their experience working with VISTAs and the FIT VISTA Program. 


The FIT VISTA Program, in New Hampshire, is part of AmeriCorps VISTA, which is a program managed by the Corporation for National & Community Service (CNCS). It is comprised of a nationwide network of professional volunteers who are paid a small stipend to serve full-time for at least one year at a nonprofit, faith-based or government agency, working to fight poverty and build organizational capacity throughout the United States.

The FIT VISTA Program currently partners with organizations throughout New Hampshire who serve as "host sites" such as Arts in Reach (Portsmouth), Granite State Independent Living (Concord), Nashua Soup Kitchen (Nashua), and others to place VISTAs in the following service areas: education, veterans’ services, economic opportunity, health, and disaster relief and prevention.
