Leaders of non-profit groups in the D.C. area are looking to each other to help weather the current economic storm.

As the recession forces non-profits to provide more services with less funds, Chuck Bean of the Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington has an idea: "We need something like e-harmony.com, non-profit speed-dating," he says.

In other words, more ways for non-profits to partner up.

Bean is a member of the WAMU 88.5 community council. At an event titled Nonprofit 911: Whats Next, he was among several speakers to applaud recent partnerships, such as N Street Village and Unity Healthcare, and Dance Place and Artspace.

Bean says in this economy, sharing facilities, capital and other resources will help local non-profits tighten their belts without losing their shirts.
