August 2017
Int'l. Overdose Awareness Day 

International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is a day for us to remember those who lost their lives as a result of a drug overdose. The grief that families and friends face when they lose a loved one never goes away. This global event on August 31 is for them. It aims to raise awareness of overdose deaths and remember those we lost.

This month, we’re asking you to make each day count by using your voice through social media. We are asking you to post messages that may be encouraging to those who are struggling with addiction or simply let them know you're there for them.

Follow us on Facebook and see what we’re sharing each day or check out the official IOAD website for more information and resources you can use to join us in speaking out!

Growing Pains?

Many nonprofits want to grow but concerns about budget, risk management and culture may hold them back. We understand the challenges nonprofits, foundations and organizations face, because we make it our mission to help them. Organizations looking to grow must take a series of steps to better navigate the process--everything from careful planning and revenue diversification to leveraging technology, as well as numerous other key strategies.

If growth is in your future, and you'd like some help along the way, let lus know. We're here to help you so that you can more easily help others.

Pinellas RE-LINK

We're so proud of the work of one our clients, Metro Wellness and Community Services in the Tampa Bay area. They've been featured yet again for their Pinellas RE-LINK program, which helps individuals being released from jail learn basic life skills, obtain healthcare, employment and housing so that they can achieve healthy transitions back into their communities. 

WTSP-TV CBS in Tampa featured their program and how they're helping make a difference in people's lives. Watch it here.

Building Skills for the Future

We are excited to share more great work of our clients. NFusion IV System of Care, a youth and family services organization in DeSoto County, Mississippi, received feedback from the youth they serve about the struggles they're facing when it comes to getting a job, applying to colleges and managing a budget. So, NFusion did something about it. The nonprofit teamed up with community colleges and businesses to help teens get ahead. The schools and businesses discussed college applications, helped prepare them for interviews and offered tips on managing their money. Their local CBS station, WREG-TV, covered the event.
