FAQ Year in Review!

Online & Ongoing December 1th – 18th

This holiday season, we offer this workshop in the form of an email series. Starting on December 1st, we will send you one of our Community Resource FAQs each weekday through December 18th (check your inbox for emails from Hope Indeglia O’Brien with the subject line: FAQ Year in Review). At the end of the 12 days of emails, you will have a Community Resource library filled with FAQs on topics ranging from Job Training to Heating Assistance. The first 5 agencies to sign up will receive a customized Community Resource binder to house the FAQs for future reference & referrals!
