Social Work Continuing Education: Community Resource Network (CRN) Initiative

The mission of the CRN Initiative is to faciliate relationships through creating bridges in the nonprofit world. We hope that this effort will help support unity between agencies, institutions, and communities to strengthen social work goals for change in society. To accomplish this effort, the CRN Initiative will host networking gatherings to help agencies form partnerships. Additionally we will host conferences which aim to bring stakeholders together from all systems of social change (not just academia) to share knowledge, research, and best practices.

Monthly Gatherings
Our main effort is in the form of monthly structured gatherings to facilitate quality networking for organizations to connect with each other, partner to fill their gaps in service delivery, and to help maintain consumer capacity in current programs. One representative from each agency will attend and share with the group comprehensive information on their services, upcoming events, and referral process. Each meeting will include a short in-service training on a topic determined by CRN members.

Meetings are held on the second Thursday of every month from 8:30am - 10:00am. All m
eetings are FREE and include light refreshments.
