This week Rich, Lisa, and Linda attended a conference sponsored by the IUSB School of Social Work. If you’re not familiar, this school is a great local institution and a phenomenal partner. This time they really raised the bar:
They waived the entry fee for the conference as long as attendees could bring personal care items to donate to the future residents of the Upper Room Women’s Home. We love what this does, because not only did we haul back five big ol’ storage containers of personal care goods and hygiene items for our women residents, it also made the conference much more affordable! All told there were about 40 attendees learning and networking with other parts of our local continuum of care.
Our communities are best served when we work together, and we can’t thank IUSB School of Social Work and Professor John Gallagher enough for partnering with us and being such an important fixture of our local care community.
