What We Do

Connecting Needs

When registered FISH Partners encounter needs that they themselves cannot fill, they can post the need of the individual or family on the FISH network.

Tackling Issues

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.

Building Capacity

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.

FEatured 
NEEDS

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.

Here are a few things we are currently in need of
