Let's talk about Collective Impact, Poverty Education for the Community & Service Directories! In this webinar, learn about the East Texas Human Needs Network (ETHNN) from director, Christina Fulsom. ETHNN brings human service agencies and organizations together for solutions where client voices are heard and the community at-large is educated through poverty simulations and workshops. ETHNN also administrates a comprehensive online community service directory, called 903Help, placing assistance information at people's fingertips. 903Help, developed in partnership with CharityTracker, includes a self-help form used by individuals in need of services, helping them make a comprehensive assessment and connect to services. Christina Fulsom is the Founder and CEO of the East Texas Human Needs Network (ETHNN). Christina has over 20 years of nonprofit leadership experience. She is devoted to creating community solutions to poverty by building cross-sector networks that listen to those in need, apply best practices, and build capacity through relationships. Under her leadership, ETHNN brought together a network of over 80 non-profit and government organizations under a collective impact model to reduce poverty. She implemented a curriculum for Understanding Poverty and published the online social services directory www.903help.org. Christina earned a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Literature from Stephen F.
