We will be sharing information and resources for Covid-19 Reliefe efforts we come across which may be helpful to our community.
Check out our upcoming workshops for Non-Profit Organizations.
In partnership with United Way, Family Plus Life Solutions is providing a 4-part workshop series geared to teach and support front line workers at local non-profit organizations. We recognize that non-profits are playing a vital role in responding to COVID 19. Typically, non-profit organizations experience underfunding and a lack of financial resources. The global pandemic has increased the workload of front line workers as well as non-profit leaders and managers. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect not only service users are in great need of help, so is our front line workers and managers leading non-profit agencies. To help reduce burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma, it is our hope these workshops will provide you, education, interaction, and supports so that you are in a better place emotionally, physically, and professionally to continue to do the incredible work you do in our community.

The Soaring Beyond COVID-19 Planning in Action Program is designed for Executive Directors that are interested in taking their organization’s operations and service delivery to higher levels of effectiveness, resilience and focus. Over 8 weeks, participants will be guided through the stages of a comprehensive strategic planning process, specifically oriented toward organizational planning and change in times of high unpredictability.
There will be 4, 90-minute Zoom classes introducing specific tools and reflective exercises to help non-profit leaders assess, renew and refocus their programming and operations, working individually and in small learning groups. Between sessions, participants will be asked to take these new planning tools into their organizations to engage relevant staff and board members in a whole-system, participatory planning and resilience building process.
The program is designed as a deep dive with many different planning tools . The program is based on experiential learning principles, appreciative inquiry, open-systems change management and design thinking.
