The workshop will be Jan. 9, 2014, at 10 a.m. at the United Way office at 820 Madison Ave., Huntington (across from the DMV). It is open to health-and-human-service nonprofits that provide services in one or more of the following counties: Cabell, Wayne, Mason and Lincoln counties in West Virginia and Lawrence County in Ohio.
