Focus: Capacity Building and Poverty Alleviation CAC AmeriCorps' VISTA program engages members of all ages supporting organizations focused on eliminating poverty in our region. AmeriCorps VISTA is a national service program that engages individuals in a full year of service (usually August – August) to their communities. Specifically, VISTA members serve to build capacity in organizations that are fighting poverty through access to resources such as job skill development, access to healthy foods, and access to health care.
