CCE Hires Foley for Habitat VISTA Position

Recent Wesleyan graduate Alice Foley was hired by the CCE to serve as the Habitat for Humanity VISTA, a position created to help aid the Buckhannon-Upshur community through the federal economic recovery plan.  Foley will work closely with the Buckhannon Chapter of Habitat for Humanity and the Parish House to build bridges that connect that chapter with students, faculty and staff on campus, as well as assist the organizations to build capacity by helping coordinate building projects, fund raising efforts, and grant writing.  In addition, Foley will work to organize a student Habitat Chapter, organize the first local Alternative Spring Break in Buckhannon, WV and build connections between other organizations in the community that serve local housing needs.
