What do you consider a "resource"?

We recognize that resources live in many forms: people, places, traditions, reports, webinars, videos, podcasts, checklists, tools, and more. 

This knowledge management platform is designed to make the wisdom, innovations, and best practices that already exist in North Sound accessible--and to link North Sound resources to national frameworks and thought partners. 

How do I use this website?
The knowledge management platform is designed for easy searching. You can type in keywords to help find what you need. 

We also have categories to help you explore content in one specific area. For example, if you want to learn more about humane housing, you can select that category to find all resources related to humane housing in one spot.

How do I recommend a resource?
We have a simple resource submission form for you to submit a resource to the platform. Please complete the form below.

North Sound ACH staff members will review submitted resources and make them available on the knowledge management platform.

What do I do if I can't find a resource that meets my needs?
If you can’t find a resource you need, let us know. As we work to expand the knowledge management platform, it’s helpful to know what’s missing. Email us at: team@northsoundach.org.

You can also explore the main Community Commons knowledge management platform. It’s easy to search by topics or keywords on the Commons, too.  

I have additional questions. Where can I find the answers?
