Common Ground presented by Church Community Services
Drawing on more than 40 years working with our impoverished neighbors, CCS has created Common Ground, an interactive, intensive workshop designed to explore the causes of poverty
- a brief study of the facts about poverty both locally and nationally
- a role-playing experience stepping into the shoes of a family trying to pay its bills for a taste of life in poverty
- sharing from the perspective of those who have experienced poverty
- an exploration of the causes and effects of poverty, including racism, using interactive models
- an assessment of the personal and community resources needed for all families to have security
- brainstorming about opportunities and solutions in our community

If you were thinking Boomers are of no use to your organization, you may need a “BAMF” on the forehead
The Boomer generation is equipped to help in a variety of ways. Over the next 40 years Boomers represent an enormous wealth transfer, a potential $20.6 trillion in charitable giving alone “KAPOW!” The generation has also “SMASHED” the concept of the “encore career,’ with retirees “SOCK”-ing their experience and skills into volunteer roles or paid “second act” jobs which have a positive social impact. Come prepare your nonprofit to benefit from Boomer engagement! The day will be filled with “BANG” interactive presenters and training culminating in a keynote luncheon with Vicki Floyd-Clark.
10:45AM - 12:15PM Boomer staff & Boomer Wellness
Competition for funding is fierce! Your outcomes should exceed the competition's
Outcomes tell us “what happened” the “change” as a result of using resources and engaging in activities to improve the lives of people. Outcomes are the “change everyone wants to see.” Keith Sarber will present an interactive learning experience on the outcome management process. Keith is the North Regional Director for the Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network and has spent the last 9 years helping United Ways and regional nonprofits with funding evaluation, Board development, strategic planning, fundraising campaigns and impact.
Participants will learn:
- How to write clear and measurable outcomes, particularly hard to measure outcomes
- An understanding of outcomes and how they differ from outputs
- Key terms
- The benefit of outcome measurement
