Multiple communities working as one county to change lives.

The Problem & Solution

After collaborative efforts to review state and local needs assessments, committee reports, and other documents, it was clear that information barriers existed in Calhoun County and its surrounding communities. Residents were unaware of and, therefore, could not access resources available to them in their time of need.

To alleviate these barriers, members of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System’s Calhoun County Extension Office, the Calhoun County Children’s Policy Council, and other organizations collaborated to produce the Calhoun County Resource Guide.

Project Goals

The goal of this project is to educate audiences about services–such as food banks, shelters, treatment facilities, and other resources–that are available in the community. The service providers listed in the guide all have the same core objective: helping to improve the quality of life of those who reside in Calhoun County.
