Host Sites

About the College Health Corps Host Sites

The CHC VISTA program brings together campus and community partners to increase health care access and health education. Either a campus or community organization can apply to host a VISTA member to strengthen the institution’s capacity to serve its community. CHC VISTA projects focus on increasing low-income communities’ access to healthcare services, providing health prevention services and health education, increasing access to emergency food and alleviating long term food insecurity, increasing organizational capacity building, and engaging campus students in their communities.
