This data has not yet been made available to the public and will highlight needs and assets of various neighborhoods in the Rockford and surrounding area. This interactive presentation should help you view our city and the participants in your programs from different perspectives to help you rethink the way you meet the needs of the people you serve.

The panel discussion will include representatives from the following agencies: Rock Valley College, Roosevelt, Goodwill Industries of Northern Illinois, The Literacy Council, and APC/WEOIA.

After the session, participants should be able to answer:

1. What services are available in Rockford?

2. How many people use those services?

3. What other resources are available?

Following the training there will be an informative Q&A session.

The information provided at these COP sessions will be useful and relevant to all case managers, even if your primary client base does not utilize the sub-sector services which are the focus of the day.

Quarterly Community of Practice events are held to strengthen skills and increase knowledge on specialized topics, share information and best practices for the field of case management in general, and provide an opportunity for networking among local case managers to help you successfully implement the foundation skills of the community wide approach to Case Management. Bring flyers and information about your upcoming programs and events - A table will be provided for attendees to leave or gather information.
