Resident Services Vista Position

The City of Portsmouth, New Hampshire is a uniquely vibrant and historic community on the central New England coast and is a celebrated destination for businesses, artists, musicians and tourists from all over the world. But despite Portsmouth’s high profile as one of the most desirable places to live and work in the United States, many of the more than 1,000 residents of the Portsmouth Housing Authority continue to experience chronic poverty and the complex social and economic challenges that are a result of this.

People from all walks of life call PHA neighborhoods home. Our 600 apartment units are spread across eleven different properties throughout the city house a diverse mix of people with deep and complex needs who rely on other social services. This is why the PHA has developed a first class Resident Services Coordination program to help our residents become successful and navigate around poverty traps that persist in our communities.

One way our Resident Services Program does this is by recruiting, training and retaining outstanding volunteers to help us meet these ends. The Resident Services FIT VISTA will be an instrumental part to building the capacity of this volunteer program so that we may be able to connect the wealth of talent and time in our community to help all of our residents succeed.
