A Successful Training!

Posted by Neighborhood Opportunity Network on March 2, 2009

Our Community Connector training was held at Family Services, Inc, the lead nonprofit host for the Neighborhood Safety Net Center in Gaithersburg. (Thanks to Tom Harr, Director of Family Services, and staff for being gracious hosts). A particularly powerful aspect of the session was the story sharing session led by Winta and Megan of IMPACT on Friday morning where each person – regardless of their potential role in this project – was asked to share a specific response to the following two questions:

  • What specific gifts do you bring to your role in the Neighbors Campaign?
  • Share a time when someone supported you through a very difficult moment in your life.

In reflecting about the session afterwards, several participants commented on how transformative this simple moment was in terms of shattering certain assumptions about others in the room, and understanding the shared goal of helping neighbors come together to be stronger, even during tough times.
