Emails, appearances on radio talk shows, customized flyers,  other mailings, notices to MBE associations, and web site announcements are constant methods of communicating our message to the community.  We utilize a combination of  all of the tools and resources above to promote our MBE/DBE program within the community and state.

With the assistance of the MBE coordinator, our database of area MBE firms is categorized by the trade and /or services offered. 

Targeted MBE/DBE/WBE firms in the local/regional area are certified who meet contractor qualifications and are ready, willing and able to perform on Christus projects.

We utilize MBE/WBE & DBE trade organizations to provide data, ideas and suggestions on improving and updating our database.

Our firms are given managerial and  technical assistance in areas that lead to the growth and development of their organization.
