Become a Barrier Buster

New Member Information

Becoming a Barrier Busters Network Member can include access to the Barrier Busters Network Emergency Unmet Needs Fund (BBEUNF) as well as to the Barrier Busters Listserv. The listserv includes more than 300 front line staff and managers and serves as a powerful tool to ask for information on resources to better serve clients. We also provide optional training on DTE Online Resources for Agencies a tool that can be used to check DTE account information and place utility shut-off holds. 

Barrier Buster New Member Orientations are scheduled for the third Thursday of every month from 11am-Noon. These meetings take place virtually over Microsoft Teams. 

If this training time does not work for your agency, please email Amber Coleman at [email protected] to schedule an alternative training time.

Please feel free to contact any of the Barrier Busters staff with any questions or concerns.

To become a member, please complete the Registration/Survey located here.

All new members must attend an orientation session to receive access to the Barrier Busters list-serve, Encompass, and DTE ORA.
