The Communications committee is charged by the Steering committee with:
1. Improving internal communications of the Partnership
The committee made of Partnership members and communications professionals has been meeting since April 2015 and has focused on coordinating community resources in Durham.
After months of research and conducting community and provider surveys, the committee has decided support the Network of Care website and work toward improving the usability and updating/streamlining the information. If possible, the Network of Care database will share information with the United Way 211 database to make sure 211 stays current. The goal is to have one resource website that is continuously updated by a full-time staff person that will serve as the community resource portal for Durham.
The committee meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 9:00 a.m.. If you would like to know more about the work of the Communications committee or attend meetings, contact Marissa Mortiboy.
