Seniors & Housing Collaborative Emergency Response Workgroup Meeting - Data on Community Capacity
The Seniors & Housing Collaborative Emergency Response Workgroup is committed to creating connections and partnerships between both Baltimore City / State agencies and community-based organizations to respond more effectively to future emergency situations. The group will identify and resolve the gaps in communication and ensure there is direct delivery of information and resources to our most vulnerable older adult, disabled and mobility-limited, and internet-lacking households. The emergency response workgroup plans to recruit community-based organizations to assist the City’s emergency team in outreach and supply distributions.
Ms. Ashley Edwards, Community Engagement Specialist of Baltimore Neighborhood Indicator Alliance (BNIA-JFI) with University of Baltimore, will share some highlights from the Baltimore Resource Landscape analysis process including: the data and trends from the survey, the capacity building strategies, and recommendations for community based organizations (CBO). She will discuss ways MONSE and BNIA are thinking about community capacity; especially in the context of mediating circumstances during crisis within neighborhood the identified CBO’s have an impact and reputation.
*Sent to Aging Innovations Group, the survey was sent to observe and analyze the way groups maintain their capacity to carry out services. (a flyer with frequently asked questions to clarify any questions you may have about the survey and the overall landscape analysis.)
