Las Cruces and Doña Ana County New Mexico
The Interagency Council is an informal group of social service providers (nonprofits, government agencies, etc.) that meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Housing Authority Conference Room (926 S. San Pedro –just west of Munson Senior Center). Everyone is welcome to bring a brown bag lunch. Cookies, or some other kind of snack, are provided.
Functioning since 2004, the Interagency Council is both a networking organization and a clearinghouse for distributing community information. The group is managed by Christina Little and Patricia Faner (individuals who helped put together First Call for Help: A Community Resource Directory produced in 2002).
Anyone in the community is welcomed to participate in the Interagency Council. There is NO cost. It is not necessary to RSVP. People show up when their schedule permits.
At the Interagency Council, all attendees are given an opportunity to make announcements about their particular agency. One organization is highlighted and makes a formal presentation about the services and programs they provide. Minutes are taken and are distributed to the list via email.
There is also a moderated listserv (handled by Christina Little) which reaches 300+ individuals. Messages come from diverse sources and can include anything of interest (ranging from the need for towels at the Community of Hope, to a fundraisers, to cooking classes offered for free to diabetics and their families by the DAC Extension Service, to notices about special workshops, to information about grant opportunities, to public service announcements from the city, county, and state).
To subscribe to the list or to send a message for distribution, contact Christina Little at firstname.lastname@example.org. Since this is a moderated listserv, you can also send them to InterAgencyCouncil@lists.zianet.com. If you do this, Christina can only approve or disapprove the message, not make any clarifying changes. For the most responsive customer service, participants are STRONGLY encouraged to email Christina Little with messages or to be subscribed or unsubscribed to the list.
