Resources to support staff and clients with coping and mental health: "Call for Calm", a new statewide emotional support text line -- Text “TALK” to 552020 or “HABLAR” for service in Spanish to the same number 552020.

Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau is hosting bi-weekly "Lunch Chat" virtual meetings on a variety of topics, many of which will be of interest to nonprofit organiztaions. Learn More.
The idea of job sharing came up as a way for nonprofits to increase staff capacity, even remotely. One organization offered to share some documents they use for their own shared job roles; we will post those resources here ASAP.
