Community Resilience Strategies for Multifamily Housing Organizations: Organizing Volunteers for Emergency ResponsePresented by Enterprise Community Partners
The successful integration of citizen involvement in an emergency management setting is critical as multifamily housing organizations prepare, respond, recover, and mitigate the impacts of disasters. In partnership with NeighborWorks America, Fall 2014’s opening resilience series training will cover the design and development of an emergency management program to address the organization and management of volunteers in emergency response, community engagement, logistics, communication and records administration. The training will focus on engaging residents to organize at a hyper-local level in a way that will increase community capacity to respond to an emergency. The day will focus on preparedness through community organizing, volunteer management, operations, logistics, communications and response systems. Participants will also receive materials and tools to use and apply after the training.
Are you unsure how to broach the subject of adoption with your young child? With the help of our adoption experts you will learn how to introduce adoption themes to your child through play, stories, and pictures. You will also become aware of how your manner and tone will shape their understanding of their story. We will provide both resources and "props" to help foster communication, as well as explore some of the common stumbling blocks that get in the way. All of our events are open to the public. Parents of children 0-5 years old are welcome. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 646-539-2167 to register.
