CPN Workshops

What happens in workshops?

LEARNING: Each workshop will start with a Lunch and Learn on a topic of interest. If you have suggestions for topics or would like to volunteer to present, contact us!

CONNECTING: Then, we’ll open the floor to other participating organizations to share a brief description of their organization – we want to know what you do and how to connect! Bring flyers to share, FAQs, slides, business cards – whatever you have and want to share. A challenge for all of us: after each meeting, reach out to at least TWO people or organizations you met.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Finally, we’ll break out into our Roundtables to tackle specific problems.

CPN Internal Resource Fair

In June 2019, the CPN took some time off for the lazy days of summer to get to know one another. Twenty-three organizations were represented and in-depth discussions ensued around legal services, reentry, education, peer support, addiction, and violence prevention. It was a great time to make connections, gain a better understanding of our resource gaps, and consider event teams that group Roundtable focus areas into relatable agendas for public involvement initiatives. Contact information for the June Workshop will be shared with the participants.

NCCARES360 and Coordinated Entry

In our May Workshop, we heard from Georgina Dukes from NCCARES360 and Abbie Szymanski of the Raleigh-Wake Partnership to End Homelessness about NCCARES360 and the Coordinated Entry process. Both provided lots of great information, and are available to talk more about both their programs and how they work together.
