Volunteers In Service To America (VISTA) was created in 1964, and is often referred to as the domestic Peace Corps. Members of Americorps*VISTA serve full-time and live in the communities they serve, creating programs that continue after their year of service is completed. VISTAs are combating poverty at multiple levels in all areas of the United States.

The mission of VISTA is:
1. To strengthen and supplement efforts to eliminate poverty and poverty-related problems
2. To encourage and enable persons of all ages and backgrounds to engage in constructive volunteer service

My partner was a VISTA attorney in Oregon in the seventies working withthe Native Americans. We are flying to Washington next month. We are trying to locate another VISTA attorney, who worked with him in Oregon.

They were very good friends in Oregon and lost each other over the past 30 years.

Can you help us?

Thank you.
