The following suggestions can help you make the best use of this resource guide:
SPEAKERS. Contact organizations when you are looking for speakers for school classes or to participate in a conference or public forum.
MEDIA. Suggest to your local media that the work of organizations listed be covered in the local newspaper, its staff or volunteers hosted on local talk shows or on the cable television community access stations. Consider interviewing some of them yourself for an article in your church or community newsletter.
RESEARCH. Some organizations listed are resource networks and libraries themselves. Use them when you are doing research for a speech or sermon, a term paper or a foundation proposal.
VOLUNTEERING. Most organizations depend on volunteers for some of their work. Look for ones that match your skills or attract your energy.
DONATIONS. All these organizations need financial support. But you might also think about supporting a group by organizing a fund raising event. This will increase public awareness about the issues as well as providing needed funds.
INSPIRATION. Use the Guide as a source for organizing ideas to develop programs in your own community.
