    • About 25% in some way expressed interest in how to collaborate and/or educate service providers on the importance of spirituality/congregational participation.
    • Other responses include online/internet resources: webinars, listserve, resource listing on website
      resource manual for congregations
  • Wiling to Help?: When we asked how many of you would be willing to help with our efforts, 14 responded, with 4 of you offering to help, 1 asking what is needed and the others declining.
  • Additional comments were similar to question on what would like the division to work on, including incorporation of a spirituality assessment in the Supports Intensity Scale (SIS).
