Announcing Our First AmeriCorps VISTAs!

DCFOF's AmeriCorps VISTAs

DCFOF’s AmeriCorps VISTAs

Denton County is now *incredibly* fortunate to have AmeriCorps VISTAs serving to support our community, thanks to Denton RSVP.

AmeriCorps VISTA  is a national service program designed to fight poverty in America. Each VISTA commits to serve on a specific project with a nonprofit organization or public agency.

Denton Country Friends of the Family (DCFOF) is tremendously thrilled to say that we have two of those VISTAs and expect to receive another in late April. We are pleased to welcome Sarah and Trish!

Sarah will be serving as the Community Outreach Liaison.  She feels very inspired to work with us because she believes that our staff and clients are all very courageous individuals who stand up and do something about how our society views and reacts to domestic violence and sexual assault. Sarah will assist in DCFOF’s social media projects, our Community Education Department, and with resource development. She is very enthusiastic to get out in the community to help spread awareness and hopefully provide some eye-opening education opportunities.

Trish will be serving as DCFOF’s Organizational Analysis and Implementation Coordinator! She is excited to work with a local organization which addresses a serious issue like domestic violence and sexual assault, knowing that these can affect anyone in our community. Trish will be helping to create a more efficient operating system for the staff here at DCFOF, so that we are able to dedicate more time to helping our clients and the community, and less time working on paperwork.

We are more than happy to have them on board – joining us in moving families from crisis to confidence!
