Rogers County Coalition Meeting

September 18, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

rccCalling all people who work with and care about… PEOPLE!

In Rogers County we have some of the greatest agencies, churches, and organizations that work to help families and individuals. Rogers County Coalition’s mission statement is: Creating a better future for families, youth and children.

We know that is the common goal of everyone that we come in contact with in working our jobs –whether that is in a paid position or a volunteer one.  On Thursday, September 18th, the Rogers County Coalition is hosting a gathering. Yeah, it’s a meeting but it is more than our regular one-topic discussion. We will be discussing in a large group what services are provided in the county and then in smaller, more topic-derived groups, we will talk about our accomplishments and what obstacles each group faces in the area in which they work.

We very much need EVERYONE there that can be there to BE THERE. It will be a chance to see what Rogers County has going for it and what it may need to work on –ways to help you in the work that you do. The gathering should also give each person a good chance to talk with others who share common goals and network. I know “networking” can sound like an ugly word but, when you need an answer or help it is always great to know that person who has the answer or can get you the answer or support you in what you do! (We all need encouragement!)

This meeting is not limited to mental health, medical, social work, nutrition, drug prevention or transportation! We need schools, churches, civic, all agencies and organizations that work with people of all ages and economic statuses. We view every person and every stage of life as important. Looking at the needs of the whole person is very much needed as well as ways to navigate and access the resources in our community!

Communication is an issue in every community but, let’s take a moment and gather together to talk! Light refreshments will be served. The meeting starts at the 12pm at Northeast Tech Center in Claremore. It shouldn’t last more than an hour but if you want to stick around to talk to other representatives, we WELCOME IT!  If you want to bring more than the light refreshments- bring it! JUST GET THERE!
