The Texas Homeless Network (THN) works to provide solutions to end homelessness in Texas communities through education, resources and advocacy. The goal of this VISTA project in Waco is to build capacity and provide program development to support an after school teen nurturing center that provides unaccompanied homeless students with wrap-around resources and support they need to graduate from high school fully prepared for college, a training program, or the workplace. The impact of the project will minimize barriers and maximize opportunities for youth living in poverty and who are currently, or at-risk of being homeless.
1.) Assist in the design and coordination of resources.
2.) Evaluate current program methods. Identify and create a database of appropriate funding sources such as donors and grants.
3.) Promote the organization’s mission and services in the community through social media and quarterly newsletters.
