Through the years, we have created and assembled resources to help individuals identify their Personal Safety Nets. These tools have been used in dozens of trainings and have been adapted to suit the needs of participants. For human resources coordinators, education coordinators, senior center program staff, families and individuals alike, we recommend the book and workbook as a great overall guide. Additional supplemental resources to tailor to your needs based on subject matter are also provided in the Free Resources section.
