United Way offers nonprofits networking, education, and idea-sharing on community issues and problems.
The safety and well-being of our clients, donors, staff, and volunteers is one of our top priorities. We are working to limit any potential risk by canceling, postponing, and rescheduling certain meetings and events.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have canceled all in-person meetings through December 31, 2020. We are monitoring the situation week by week and will announce any further cancellations and/or postponed events as soon as possible.
If we can secure speakers, we will provide ESPN and Interagency Members with updated information on how to access the meetings virtually. We want to keep members engaged, so even if we are unable to obtain a speaker, we will be sending out information that you can use until we reconvene.
If you are not on the ESPN or Interagency distribution list, please send a request to Cornelius Blackshear, Mission United Senior Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Interagency Information & Referral Network offers health and human service organizations a valuable opportunity to keep abreast of issues that affect our community. The Interagency Network provides a monthly forum for learning about resources, discussing current issues, and keeping up to date on existing services. Participants include over 100 health and human service organizations, representing the full range of services in our community, and encompassing all populations – children, youth, women, men, families, seniors.
Meetings are held virtually on the second Thursday of every month from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Elder Service Provider Network
ESPN offers a unique blend of personal interaction and professional development, with the goal of better assisting older adults. By learning about resources and issues impacting seniors, and interacting with elder care providers, participants have been able to maximize their efforts, especially regarding difficult cases or hard-to-find resources. The average attendance is approximately 120 participants per month, representing a comprehensive spectrum of elder care services in our community.
Meetings are held virtually on the fourth Tuesday of every month from 10 a.m. - noon.
