I am so pleased that MHLP is continuing our partnership with the AmeriCorps VISTA program. Katie Swanson is our new VISTA volunteer.
Katie is a Wisconsin native, but has a special love for Minnesota since she graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield. She most recently resided in Lakeside, Montana where she was an on-site program coordinator for Flathead Lutheran Camp.
