Since 2008, Cornerstone Assistance Network has served as an Intermediary Agency for the AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) program on behalf of the Corporation for National and Community Service. As an Intermediary Agency, Cornerstone partners with nonprofit, community-based organizations to bring individuals and communities out of poverty. We help nonprofits develop sustainable three-year VISTA projects that are aligned with the Corporation’s strategic plan and goals, and we help nonprofits recruit one to three full-time AmeriCorps*VISTA members per year for up to three years. Through indirect service activities such as program development, volunteer recruitment, curriculum development, public relations and marketing, fundraising and event planning, grant writing, and community outreach, the VISTA members work to help nonprofits build their infrastructure and overall capacity to strengthen, expand, and sustain programs, services, and systems that end poverty. VISTAs are placed, trained, and managed through Cornerstone and supervised and trained locally through the nonprofit partners.
