One Church One School Community Partnership Program, based in Chicago, Illinois. The program focuses on partnering schools with faith-based entities to provide a community for school-age children. Their business challenge was how to expand their network of supporters, including donors, partnering schools and faith-based organizations.
It was a wonderful and productive conversation. Jessica understood our needs and helped us to focus and prioritize. She demonstrated expertise in marketing, working with faith-based, not-for-profit organizations and organizations who may have been around a long time but needed uplifting, restoring and expansion. Jessica listened carefully. I appreciated how she made sure we understood concepts and the value they may be to our organization. Her conversation was warm and encouraging. When the call ended, we had a wealth of information and were highly motivated. We immediately called other team members and set up a time to share and begin the work. I am so glad that our organization was offered this valuable opportunity and that Jessica chose to work with us. — Phedonia J., Executive Director
Compassionate Service Society, based in Anaheim, California. The organization’s mission is to “build and nurture uplifting communities that spread peace, harmony and joy.” Their business challenge was whether they should market their large yearly event as part of the larger organization, or keep it separate.
Jessica was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and helped us decide whether we should market our annual event as a separate brand or under our organization. She introduced us to the idea of brand hierarchy and emphasized the importance of having a creative brief with brand guidelines to provide brand consistency. We learned so much! By the end, we were able to carve out some steps to move forward and came away with some clarity on what we should work on next. I didn’t expect that so much could be covered in just one hour! — Dan L., Volunteer Manager

Jessica was very insightful! She had reviewed our website and was able to share real-time strategies to meet our communications and marketing goals. I am looking forward to working with Jessica on other projects. — Cosette N., Executive Director

The nonprofit organization’s mission is “to revitalize our community by investing in its people and places.” Their business challenge was to receive feedback on their current marketing plan in support of the 2,000 families they provide services to each year.
