Connected Communities Broadcast
The Connected Communities Broadcast builds partnerships with other social-service organizations, schools, businesses, government officials and individuals that foster community-wide outreach, resource development and action. During COVID, one of the most impactful initiatives within the Connected Communities program was a daily, live broadcast hosted on FaceBook and YouTube. This broadcast covered a wide range of topics related to COVID as well as other community needs, helping to break the isolation many were experiencing and providing critical information and support. Making a Change Group also stepped up via Connected Communities (an outreach program) to provide food and other vital supplies to families in need, sponsored a violence-prevention initiative for youth (V-PRYDE), supported trash remediation efforts and participated in a vaccine hesitancy initiative.
