VISTA Partner Sites

The South Cumberland VISTA Project currently works with eleven partner organizations throughout the Plateau. Each partner site works to address various aspects of poverty in our local communities. Through Action Based Community Development, each of these organizations and the VISTA's who represent them are committed to developing initiatives and programs to serve the Plateau in effective and meaningful ways.
