By Michelle Provencher 7:17pm, September 13, 2013 - Updated 7:42pm, September 13, 2013Economic hardships are a burden for struggling non-profits and small businesses across the state.
However a new social entrepreneurship project, created by former New Castle County Council President Tom Kovach, aims to keep these organizations afloat.
Kovach explains why he's behind "Assist and Inspire Delaware."
"The government can only do so much, and there are so many good, hard-working community groups. What I can do is help them be more successful in serving our shared community," Kovach said.
"Assist and Inspire" helps community organizations in multiple ways.
"There are so many worthy non-profits and they are facing tough economic times, slower giving. So we're there to help. We're there to help them connect with the information and resources they need, number one. We're there to help them connect with each other, number two. And number three, we're there to connect them to the public that they serve," Kovach said.
Kovach says a recent mixer with non-profits, small businesses and media outlets was so successful that another one is in the works.
