Tampa, Florida: Helping Individuals Experiencing Homelessness
As a digital marketing agency, we love to solve difficult marketing challenges. We bring this mindset to our community outreach and try to create new, innovative solutions that effectively address persistent community challenges. Homelessness in Tampa is one such challenge Sun Sign Designs has recently had the privilege to volunteer and work on. Reaching out to individuals experiencing homelessness is critical to helping them access supportive services that restore their dignity and enhance the possibility that they will be able to achieve their housing and life goals.
The Hillsborough Community Homeless Outreach event is a collaborative partnership program between Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Hillsborough County, Tampa Police Department, City of Tampa, Tampa International Airport Police, and Sun Sign Designs Inc., in cooperation with community event sponsors, like Sacred Heart Catholic Church, to support those in the community experiencing homelessness.
Majority of this effort is supported through local charitable donations by the community and event sponsors, including donated time from the partnership’s employees and volunteers from all the participating sponsors in the community. Homeless outreach events such as these are designed to serve disconnected, alienated individuals, integrate them into a network of support, and empower them with necessary services. As a result, the coordination of vendors, volunteers, and services is critical for a successful outreach event—which is where we were able to put our problem-solving mindset and digital marketing tools to good use!
The services Sun Sign Designs provides effectively empower this partnership program through our technology and services to support large scale event planning, operations, and analytics. We also provide consultations on how to evolve the program over time based on partner, vendor, and volunteer feedback and analytics.
Empower Your Community
The importance of giving back to a community that has uplifted you cannot be overstated. For our business, giving back to the community is rewarding, but it is also a natural extension of our company mission. We believe that we have an obligation to reinvest into the community that has helped support our services—in other words, we want to empower those who have empowered us.
As individuals and as businesses, we all have the power to be innovators, to help people, and truly make a difference in our communities. Donating your time, talents, and skills is one of the best ways to develop solutions to problems, make an impact, and improve the lives of those around you.
