connecting to resources

Partner Network

The Community Partner Network (CPN) represents a consortium of organizations and volunteers that have come together as a team to meet the needs of neighbors struggling with poverty and crisis.

The CPN empowers and equips the community to stand in the gap where a bridge is desperately needed to critical resources. It strategically canvases the community for vital resources and connects these resources to service providers and faith-based initiatives.

Get Connected!

Engage the help of other service providers within our Community Partner Network using the Client Assistance System & Exchange (CASE). It is a simple, one-way email request for services, or input, that is sent to participating members of a specific CPN Roundtable. Once a connection is made, a one-on-one conversation can move forward to specifics.

Our outcome goals are always about increasing the capacity to serve people with critical needs:

How can we serve more people and how can we do it better?

We are structured for success

We have THE DATA

We actively stay abreast of the community demographic, economic, and community data that matters to grant writers. Analysis of a given region of Wake County, or even a neighborhood, can easily be compared to the same countywide data.

We have THE INFORMATION

We provide information on non-discrimination regulation to help organizations receiving state and federal grant funding meet compliance requirements. Our partnering consultants can assist with developing Compliance and Public Involvement Plans.

We have THE MAP

Need to find a community resource? It is probably on the map. If it is not, it needs to be on the map. So, help us get our community resources on the map and make them easy for people to find.

WE COMMUNICATE

The CPN represents over 300 volunteers that have historically served, contributed to and/or administered human services for people in need and crisis. The primary modes of communication are web-based and include email notifications and website postings. The system custodian is the Transformation Exchange. It can:

  • Spread the word about an event, service or program;
  • Bring focused areas of expertise around a problem that needs a solution; and
  • Add a collaborative facet to case management by providing group communication to Roundtable Referral and Advocate Teams.

CPN LogoRoundtable Forums are the Community Partner Network’s (CPN’s) pathway to project work and collaboration between our faith, business, agency and non-profit members.

It is this commitment to work faithfully together that has forged a network of organizations and volunteers known and the CPN.

In the beginning, this only happened at an annual event hosted by Crossroads Fellowship Church. Community partners came together for “Roundtable” discussions about critical issues and needs impacting Wake County communities and residents struggling with poverty and crisis. It was a time when those who needed resources sat with those who had resources to share. Together, community partners looked for solutions and next steps to tackle really big problems. These meetings will still occur and it is hoped that these will be increased and take place across all regions of Wake County.

To open this forum and channel the synergy it produced into an ongoing continuum, the Transformation Exchange is developing an on online version of the event where concentrated expertise around the tough topics and scarcity of resources can be addressed head-on as a team 24/7.
