Southern Mutual Help Association

I love to take the opportunity to shout out community initiatives in rural areas.This link is a story about a family who lost their home and was able to move forward with the support of the Southern Mutual Help Association.

Housing Resources in Illinois

The organization Housing Action Illinois has a stunning amount of information available on their website.I don't know if I can really do it justice so I'll put up a few points here..

They provide training for Housing Counselors and you can find a schedule at this link.Their listing of Community Housing Development organizations can be found here.Also, some resources about Employer Assisted Housing including REACH (a statewide incentive program) can be found here.

Volunteer Stewardship

The Points of Light Institute has an interesting option for online learning available on their website.I don't know exactly how they engage with the Hands On Newtork, but the two organizations have an effort called HandsOn University where you can take courses related to volunteer stewardship.

Grant Proposals-Twin Cities

Over the past few months I  have attended many a webinar so some of the organizations you will see on The Fifty Co-Op , I learned of during these events.

I can't recall how I learned about the Otto Bremer Foundation.Now I know for sure how to spell Minnesota.

The link below provides information about what they generally support and they also provide some guidance regarding what falls outside of their focus.

That's extra helpful in my book-no guesswork for applicants.
