Neighborhood Housing Services is excited to have Marie Conway and Emily Pohlman joining our staff for one year VISTA assignments.  The Americorps VISTA program is federally funded to provide capacity building support to nonprofit organizations working to eliminate poverty.

Marie Conway, originally from Rexburg, has recently graduated with a Master of Public Affairs from Indiana University.  She will be working to improve the monitoring and efficiency of NHS properties, as well as developing a Green Program for NHS asset management.

Emily Pohlman is a Boise State graduate and originally from Wisconsin.  Her degree in social work and experience in psychosocial rehabilitation will benefit her assignment at NHS, which includes developing a Resident Services program for the families living in NHS communities. 

Emily and Marie attended Pre-Service Orientation in Los Angeles and started at NHS on August 12. Both have hit the ground running, so please welcome them and look forward to the great accomplishments they are sure to achieve this year.
