What We Do
Every month, FISH hosts dynamic presentations and convenes partners, concerned individuals and community leaders to discuss relevant and often difficult issues facing individuals and partner sectors.
FISH is all about establishing connections. When you connect with other partners in the network, you’re gaining more knowledge and insight since you’re interacting and collaborating with other sectors.
When FISH posts a need that was submitted by a registered FISH Partner, an email is sent to notify the network that a new need has been posted. The email is routed to any partners who indicated the category of the need in their preferences.
