August 26th - Data & Tech For the Social Sector [Through the Church]

The Church is normally decades behind society in terms of innovation. That's not the case right now. The data and technology that's available to the social sector in DFW through the Church is impressive. DFW's brightest social sector leaders agree.

We need to dive deeper into the kinds of data we have at our fingertips. We'll each take the next step towards using this information and technology to help us accomplish our goals as churches and nonprofits.

August 19th - Your Best Next Step

Last week we talked about the Metro-wide communication efforts that we're kicking off and the role of churches, nonprofits, schools, and businesses could play. Participants shared their #1 objective, and today we're going to talk about your best next step. Thousands of community members want to help. Thousands need help. The only way we can connect the two groups is by using a "platform" model -- think Uber or Airbnb.

We can do this together...one step at a time.

August 12th - Workshop for Uber and Airbnb

How do we connect thousands of people who need help to available resources? Those who want to help to the places they're needed most? These are the questions we talked about during our workshop today. We want to engage young adults and seniors because helping a neighbor is extremely beneficial to their own mental health.​
