Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, Hopeworks interns have proven their value time and time again. All three of our businesses are meeting the needs of our clients without interruption!
Our latest project with Tennessee American Water has Hopeworks GIS interns working hard at home processing records and interpreting scanned engineering drawings to populate data into TNAW's ArcGIS Online. Hopeworks not only does the data transfer and updating, but provides QA/QC.
GIS Director, Luis Olivieri, reports that interns are ”processing close to 15,000 records in a month, comparable to any other GIS professional service. In fact, we are on course to complete our project with TNAW in approximately half the time expected!"
Xavier Hilton is one of several interns making this possible. Xavier has processed over 2,000 records in recent weeks and tells us, “This project means a lot to me especially during this pandemic, because even though there is a lot going on in the world, we are still able to produce our amazing work and make positive changes to help better communities.”

Hopeworks Web Team has been busy, like all of us, working remotely! They recently launched a new website - Philly Homes for Youth - a coalition of organizations working to end homelessness in Philadelphia.
Philly Homes for Youth was the first website new web intern Andrew McFarlane worked on. About the project, Andrew shared, "Working on the website for Philly Homes for Youth was a fun experience for me. I enjoyed developing the layout as well as the content. I learned so much from hands on experience."
Hopeworks team of interns, under the guidance of Web Director Annie Rose Webb, are designing and developing solutions for businesses of all sizes in all sectors. Let’s keep them working on your project!

Hopeworks Youth Healing Team (YHT) has been meeting virtually to design a webinar so they can continue delivering our Trauma Informed Care Training!
YHT Intern Alicia Hinkle shared, “Working from home hasn’t stopped us from doing what we do best. We’re currently working on a webinar to help everyone find ways to deal with the stress of the coronavirus while working from home and in isolation.”
According to Hopeworks Community Impact Director, Kate Daugherty, they recently piloted an interactive slide presentation: “Dealing with Trauma and Toxic Stress During the Coronavirus.”

This month, Hopeworks Youth Healing Team headed to Washington, D.C. to provide trauma training to staff at AmeriHealth Caritas! Our Trauma Training will help staff as they develop policies and procedures to address and even prevent many of the symptoms of working in a high adversity environment and with families facing trauma and chronic stress.
At Hopeworks, our web team develops quality interactive websites for our clients. Our recent accomplishments include Reconnect Brooklyn, an organization that provides young men with the tools to become successful as they build job skills and reconnect them with education. Prior to working with Hopeworks, Reconnect Brooklyn was dissatisfied with their Squarespace experience so they approached Hopeworks Web for a crisp, clean WordPress website. Using the strength of their visual photographs, Hopeworks Web created a website that mirrors the strength of the incredible community of Recconnect Brooklyn.
Similarly, another organization, University Research Strategies, was in need of a strong web presence. They approached Penji, a design agency, for the visual designs and Hopeworks Web for the WordPress build. Hopeworks Web created an interactive experience for URS visitors to learn more about the company and its team of experts.
Check out these two websites and see how we're helping these organizations meet their business goals.
