Regional Community Resources Collaboration Network


Through a grant from the Z. Smith Reynolds FoundationOffice of Regional Initiative has begun the development of the Regional Community Resources Collaboration Network. The purpose of the project is to establish a network through which community service organizations can learn about services being provided in other communities, collaborate on projects and, pursue operational funding through a united effort. This project involves conducting an inventory of community services organizations throughout the nine county region served by the University. In addition to this online guide book, this data is being compiled into a regional guide book for printing and distribution to every organization included in the inventory. The project also involves the provision of free region-wide training, this web page and, an automated telephone directory system. Finally, a newsletter will be developed as a communication tool for every

member of the network.

This on-line guidebook is still in the development process. Therefore, not all information is complete and resource information will continually be added to this site. The information you see here has been collected via individual contacts with organizations as well as through permission to reprint the Montgomery County Community Resources Directory.

If you have questions/corrections or would like to add your organization to this list, please contact the Office of Regional Initiative at (910) 775-4000 or send email to rc@uncp.edu! Thank you!!!
