Through striking portraits and first person audio, Homeless is my address, not my name will undoubtedly alter your perceptions of homelessness.

Kimberly Conger
Each year, the Minnesota Literacy Council recruits a current VISTA member to become the VISTA Leader for the following year. This person takes on the responsibilities of member support, including trainings, social events, technical assistance, and site visits. This year, we are lucky to have Kimberly Conger join our team!
41 VISTA members from the Minnesota Literacy Council were recently sworn into service.

Are you a soon-to-be former VISTA interested in staying involved in National Service?  If so, consider being a part of our advisory board.  We meet just twice a year to make site selection decisions and to review the direction of the program for the following year.  If you’re interested, check out the flyer for more information.
