On today's The Non-Profit Hour, we're taking a look at collaboration. Whether it's working with like-minded organizations, government bureaus, or neighborhood and community groups, nearly all non-profits learn that forming partnerships is tremendously valuable toward attaining their organizational goals.
To start, hear Julie Falk speak with Glen Montgomery and Felicita Monteblanco of Vision Action Network. VAN was formed in 2002 as a private non-profit agency to be a catalyst, incubator, and facilitator for resulting collaborative efforts to improve life for people throughout Washington County. Montgomery and Monteblanco join us today to discuss VAN's past, present, and future and explain the vital importance of fostering collaborations and maintaining a holistic view in addressing the needs of the diverse Washington County communities.
In the next half of The Non-Profit Hour, we have another segment in our ongoing series of interviews of candidates who are running for office in our Government of Portland, looking at the ways in which government and non-profits must collaborate to achieve positive outcomes for all residents. Phil Busse talks with Multnomah County Commissioner and Portland Mayoral candidate Jules Bailey. Bailey shares his perspective on what critical areas require attention most as well as his positive outlook for the future of Portland. Keep tuning in to The Non-Profit Hour over the coming weeks to hear from more candidates and what they would do standing at the helm of the city.
