    Understanding the 2020 Nonprofit Landscape in Howard County

    Serving the needs of HoCo residents requires a strategic and complex collaboration between the private, government, and nonprofit sectors within a constantly changing environment. Understanding its impact is critical to planning for an effective year.

    Join Jacqueline Scott, Director of the Howard County Dept of Community Resources & Services, and Joan Driessen, ACS Executive Director, to examine existing challenges and collectively explore opportunities to maximize our resources toward achieving mutual goals.

    Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunches and enjoy them during the presentation.

    Join us as Rose Burton and Liz Van Oeveren from the Howard County Department of Community Resources and Services Office of Community Partnerships present:

    The Path Home: Howard County's 2020-2025 Strategic Plan to End Homelessness 

    Over the last year, the Office of Community Partnerships has worked with the Howard County Coalition to End Homelessness to update and further the work of the 2010 Plan. The title of the new plan, The Path Home, refers to the Coalition’s goals to strengthen the Coordinated Entry System – the path – to allow clients to return to stable, sustainable housing. It is a five-year strategic plan to end homelessness in Howard County, and will be implemented by the Coalition through annual action plans to ensure that homelessness is rare, brief and nonrecurring. “The Path Home” has been developed in partnership with the Coalition to End Homelessness Board (CoC) with input from: the State of Maryland Department of Housing & Community Development, The National Alliance to End Homelessness, various Howard County Departments and Offices, and the community-wide Coalition to End Homelessness

    Innovative Board Recruitment and Management: Identifying, Recruiting and Retaining First-Rate Board Members

    Do you recruit people who you think will be wonderful board members just to have them fizzle out and contribute little to board operations? Are you tired of hearing that prospective board members are already over-committed? Has getting the corporate/business representation you would like on your board been a challenge? Would you like your board to be more diverse and representative of the community?

    In this program, we will discuss innovative ways to find fresh prospects who have the expertise you need and the ability and desire to serve. 

    This program is most appropriate for board members. It is strongly encouraged that at least two board members from the organization attend to maximize its impact. Executive directors are welcome; but will benefit most if accompanied by a board member.
