Who are VIP Members?
Information Handlers are community volunteers who use the VIP platform to filter and verify incoming information from Shulé meetings and broadcast it live to the g'hood map, making it accessible to community members.
Trusted Advisors are local neighbors with a longstanding reputation in their community. They respond to community requests for support and work as a bridge between information handlers and community members in response to the needs of community members.
Community Managers are higher level coordinators of support and information exchange in the target community. They support all of VIP members, including Information Handlers and Trusted Advisors to ensure neighbors are effectively receiving the help they need.
Community members belong to a neighborhood covered by the VIP network, they receive and offer information/services to neighbors. Community members can benefit from VIP services by attending meetings, exchanging messages, and contributing information to go on the G'hood map. They exchange information with other VIP members to help their neighborhood.
