Helping professionals, staff, and volunteers continue to be asked to do more, with less. Those who have attended this event in previous years understand what a powerful, informative and worthwhile morning this is. This is always a great opportunity for staff and volunteers to learn about the full range of helpful resources serving the downriver area and surrounding communities; across all service sectors, and there is no charge to attend! This year as in the past, we gathered agencies and organizations from virtually all service sectors. This year, with so many challenges facing families and individuals, the needs are great."
