We're proud to have played a role in helping N Street Village gain pro bono public relations help for 2005 and 2006 from the Washington chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators. N Street Village serves homeless and low-income women with a day center, night shelter, transitional housing for women in recovery, permanent housing for women with mental illness, and low- and moderate-income housing. But it's also a place where homeless women can get their mail and meals, learn job skills, and receive health and mental health services and wellness care. Mary Funke is NSV's excellent executive director, and she was quick to apply when we passed on IABC's call for new pro bono clients. Check with your area communications, PR, journalism, marketing or related professional societies to see if they take on pro bono clients, or can help you identify communications pros as volunteers. And contact NSV if you can help them, too!
