A Nonprofit TimeBank: Sharing our Assets

Nonprofit organizations often need services that are hard to write into grants: organizational development, board retreats, meeting space, and other professional services.  Many nonprofits have staff and volunteers who could provide these professional services, need to utilize someone “from the outside” to conduct the work.  This session will introduce the concept of timebanking and how a software platform (Community Weaver) can support the nonprofit community’s organizational needs.  Timebanking is a natural extension of the shared space movement and provides a mechanism for equitable sharing of assets to support one another through the use of time credits.

Beyond MOU’s – Navigating Deeper Collaboration

This session will provide a roadmap for organizations looking to deepen their relationships to support resource sharing.  We’ll review a tested approach for organizations to negotiate a range of structures for working together.  Sharing space and sharing services often makes deeper collaboration opportunities more visible, but organizations often lack the knowledge and language to cross the threshold and design new ways to join forces for greater impact.  We’ll provide practical tools and take-aways that you can use in a variety of situations.

Tying it Together:
Open-Source Options to Support Emergent Strategy & Evaluation

If you are like most people, you cringe and shudder when thinking about databases. Shared Space operators need to learn from many different types of information about their constituents, programs and outcomes. Many end up using a hodge-podge approach – a mix of databases, Word and Excel docs, shared files, and pencil notes scribbled in daytimers and on sticky notes. During this session, we will start with describing the particular needs of “emergent strategy” work, and then dive into showcases of free, open-source software you could use to support your own missions and those of your members.  Learn how to access these free tools, see shared space and shared services use case studies, and integrate easy data collection to reflect on outcomes.

Whole System Collaborative Outcome Mapping for Transformative Change:
Homelessness and Affordable Housing

This workshop will introduce you to Whole System Collaborative Outcome Mapping (COM) – a process and framework that can provide integral support to Collective Impact work when it is co-created by multi-stakeholder teams and applied by diverse groups to complex systemic challenges, such as poverty, homelessness, and affordable housing. Attendees/ participants will learn how Collaborative Outcome Maps (COMaps) can integrate and link all interventions to outcomes, all outcomes to a long-term goal, and the goal to multiple impacts; with a focus on the powerful but simple Zone Map Canvas tool. We will conclude with a deep-dive into Abbotsford, BC’s Homelessness Strategy, where the city coordinated the development of the COMap, Collaborative Roadmap to Abbotsford Homelessness Prevention and Response, and is now working with several stakeholders to implement the initiative. This is also being applied to Abbotsford’s affordable housing challenges.

Co-location and Collaboration for Holistic Care

Current health disparities show that transportation and self-care motivation adversely impact clinical outcomes and healthcare productivity. Social, mental, acute and chronic health conditions often translate into the need for support services, but often very little coordination exists between health and social service providers. This session will share the health data of the community that prompted the co-location of seven nonprofit organizations and businesses into Reaching Our Community (ROC) HUB.  Strategies, theories and practices will be shared that helped shape effective partnerships and offerings, from fitness classes, life skills workshop, massage therapy, addiction recovery, to workforce training and more, that together provides the ultimate benefit of improved community care, successful holistic health outcomes, and a better quality of life for community residents.
