The collaborative’s members, including residents, clergy, educators, law enforcement, and public health workers, are “mapping” programs in each town in the county, according to an article published by online news site digitalBurg.com in July.
“It’s going to show where the deficiencies are and the strengths,” Holli Burge, a public health nurse educator and collaborative member, told digitalBurg. “We’ll be able to see all the resources on one table.”
