Making Connections Community Resource Directory 2004-2005

Metro still has a limited stock of the 2004-2005 edition. For the past 12 years, Fresno Metro Ministry has gathered, organized, and updated this directory of non-profit and governmental agencies engaged in providing services and resources to the greater Fresno area. This extensive and valuable resource provides over 300 listings of agencies’ contact and specific service information.

The purpose of Making Connections is to assist individuals and families to connect to the helping services they need. Furthermore, this directory has enabled agencies to link services and collaborate among themselves, so that they might gain greater outreach to a wider base of our population. Making Connections and Metro need your help.

By advertising your business or organization in the directory, pre-ordering copies, or helping us to link up more organizations or businesses for this upcoming edition, you are supporting the development of a stronger, healthier Fresno.

Available from Metro office as long as supplies last. $7.00 each plus postage if mailed.

To order copies or place an ad in the directory, please contact Carmen Pauls Wiens at (559) 485-1416 or by email at carmen@fresnometmin.org.
