Partners in Community Building Round Table

Partners in Community Building Round Table


In the social service sector, we are famously about ACTION.  However at times we need to ensure we are doing adequate DIAGNOSIS to tie our actions to actual or emergent needs.  Further, do we need to address those needs alone?  There is power in collaboration to build and strengthen a community.

You are invited to be part of a Round Table on March 22 to:

  • Diagnose some of the critical needs of our community; those that are being addressed and areas where gaps exist.
  • Brainstorm potential solutions.
  • Discover agencies, initiatives and resources already in place.
  • Explore potential collaborations and partnerships.
  • Dream about what could be in 5-10 years.

Encompass Partnerships is hosting this round table.  Relatively new to the NE, we established ourselves here in July 2014.  As a collaborative, we focus on bringing together individuals, agencies and churches that help those living on the margins of society, including immigrants, the sexually exploited, aboriginal youth etc. Our NE facility houses eleven partners with available space accessible to other agencies who share our heart for the marginalized of our city.

This event is not open to the public but rather is by invitation to agencies, faith communities and associations that currently serve or provide services to the public. We hope that this event brings together NE communities and leads to potential collaboration and partnerships.

If you know of service entities that work in the NE sector (we are focusing on East of Deerfoot and North of 16th Ave), who would benefit from being at the round table, please direct them to our website to register.

If you have any questions or for more information, please contact Encompass' executive director, Harv Matchullis (403.970.4148).
