VHFA HELPS LAUNCH VRSC WEB SITE

Burlington, VT—Vermont Resident Service Coordinators (VRSC) launched its Web site on Feb. 14, with help from Vermont Housing Finance Agency (VHFA). The site (www.vrsc.org) is the organization’s first venture onto the Web. It offers information about VRSC, an archive of the organization’s newsletters, a database of resident service coordinators (RSC) working in Vermont, a collection of helpful links for RSCs and more. VRSC members have access to the site’s member’s only section, which contains a variety of useful resources, including a members’ forum. VHFA Communications Coordinator Craig Bailey developed the site, working with VRSC Administrator Cathleen Gent. It includes a custom-built content management system that allows VRSC to maintain the site without the assistance of a Web developer. “The VRSC Web site is an all-in-one resource for Vermont's resident service coordinators to help perform their work every day,” says VRSC President Gina Berry. “We thank VHFA for making the Web site possible.” VRSC is a professional group dedicated to providing educational and peer support to individuals and organizations offering resident service coordination services in housing across Vermont. The Vermont Legislature established VHFA in 1974 to finance and promote affordable housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income Vermonters. Since its inception, the Agency has helped almost 25,000 households with affordable mortgages and nearly 7,000 families into affordable rental units. VHFA Director of Multifamily Programs Sam Falzone has been involved with VRSC since its nascent stages in 1995.
