Community organizations can learn to work better together

Join the conversation at the Better Together Community Dialogue on Friday, Dec. 2, from 11:45 a.m. to 3 p.m., to share ideas on ways non-profits, government entities and businesses, could work together to create better understanding of programs and services available, and increase communication among the providers. The dialogue will include presentations on local research & existing assets; forming consensus on priorities moving forward and the formation of planning groups.

Some specifics topics include:

  • ways to increase awareness in general – working better together with any media opportunities
  • ‘one-stop’ community calendar and directory that is always current
  • finding an easy and manageable way to communicate with all not for profits
  • creating opportunities for sharing resources, when possible

“I believe that there is a sincere interest in exploring ways to work together” states Jorgina Little, project coordinator. “There are so many great programs and services in our region offered by a vast array of non-profits and public agencies, however, there are always challenges. Currently, some providers are stating that in recent years their funding and resources have been reduced, and that often, a marketing budget is not available. Many agencies promote their services from the corner of their desk.”

Little explained that, while conducting local research, it also became clear that front-line workers in public spaces are experiencing an increase in requests for support from various vulnerable individuals, but report that they are unaware of the services and supports available.

The Better Together Community Dialogue is an opportunity to discuss these topics and develop manageable solutions and way of working together in these areas.
