Hamilton County has a strong network of nonprofit organizations that work together to help residents overcome whatever challenges they face. The power of that collaboration is the premise behind a new web resource that spotlights the diverse coalition of local nonprofits dedicated to making a positive impact in Hamilton County. At help4hamiltoncounty.org, Hamilton County residents will find uncomplicated access to this network of nonprofit organizations and the crucial services they provide.
This website is made possible by the support of the Hamilton County Community Foundation, Duke Energy, the Hamilton County Trustees Association and Good Samaritan Network. The web resource offers connection to services under six critical issues that our neighbors navigate on a daily basis:
- Aging and Seniors
- Food Assistance
- Medical and Mental Health
- Youth and Families
- Education and Employment
Each issue also presents a related video, ranging in length from about 6 to 8 minutes, that highlights the difference nonprofits make in their clients’ lives — strengthening our community in the process. The videos feature interviews with nonprofit executives and clients who have received services, as well as elected officials and other community leaders. They provide remarkable insight into the challenges many residents face despite county’s upscale appearance.
Organizers hope that as the videos increase awareness of the many resources available to those in need, the availability of those resources as a quick click away increases access to resources in our community.
Help4HamiltonCounty.org has included Accessibility Adjustments on the new website to remove barriers and make finding resources accessible for as many community residents as possible. Any suggestions are welcome; please reach out through the ‘Contact Us’ page.
We believe that by working together, we can help our community and those who live in it thrive. “As you have seen, their impact is changing the lives of the people of our great county and leaving a lasting legacy,” County Commissioner Mark Heirbrandt said in the videos.
