Want to Add a Listing to our Directory? Click the Directory link above, and then follow these easy steps:

Register by clicking “Add” and “Create Account” in the link above. From there the program will walk you through creating your listing(s). We ask that you list each service you provide as a separate listing, i.e. if you are a church and offer Grief Share or Divorce Care programs, and/or host a food pantry or other ministry, create individual listings for each.  If you are an agency or nonprofit, list each program you offer individually.  Also, be sure to complete all fields, listing the specific eligibility for participants as well as contact info for each program. You can also create one overall general listing for your agency, ministry or church as well. Your listing(s) will then be reviewed by One Body Collaboratives and uploaded into the directory.  At any time you can update or add listings by logging into your account, and clicking “Manage/Update Listing."  Questions?
