Snohomish County and Housing Hope will continue its series of “social enterprise” workshops, offering nonprofits new ideas for generating revenue on a sustainable basis during its next workshop on July 11.
Snohomish County, through the Gates Foundation’s Investing in Families grant, has been working with local nonprofits including Housing Hope to expand social enterprise options locally.
Jeff Patterson, director of Development and Marketing at Bridgeways Enterprises, and Kirk Adams, president of the Seattle Lighthouse for the Blind, will present the benefits of working collaboratively during a July 11 session, which will be held at the Ken Schilaty Learning Center, 5910 Evergreen Way, Everett, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The two are enthusiastic advocates of CONNECT, one model that brings social enterprises together with a shared mission/purpose, and will be sharing highlights of the model during this latest workshop – the seventh of 12 in the series.
Seattle Lighthouse has successfully used the CONNECT model in its own work, as has Bridgeways and about a dozen other organizations in the region. More information can be found at www.connectsupplychain.com/about/.
The cost of the workshop is $10 per agency for up to five attendees, or $25 for a series of three workshops. To register, contact Housing Hope at 425-347-6556 email@example.com.
