1stbreath

1st Breath

1st Breath is committed to providing education, advocacy, and public awareness of stillbirth in addition to assisting families and medical professionals dealing with the death of a baby.
Needs: 1st Breath would like C4C to update their website to allow for interactive forms and the ability to accept donations.  The would like the ability to have non-IT people be able to add text and pictures as well as pull summary of data submitted via "fill in the blank" forms.
Mission Statement: Honoring those born who never took a breath... Serving so all born may have a 1st Breath.

 

 

hopehouse

Hope House

Needs: We'd like software for an online "flipper catalog" designed that would be used to display auction items for two of our annual events. We're hoping to use it as a teaser to get people excited about the event and parlay that into higher bids.
Mission Statement: Hope House's mission is to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing safe refuge and supportive services that educate and empower women and children. Hope House will advocate social change that protects and engenders a person's right to live a life free of abuse.

 

 

kchospice

Kansas City Hospice House

Needs: Software that allows us to manage many different schedules:  nursing staff, 150 active volunteers, over 1,000 community volunteers providing baked goods, meals, etc.   Online and interactive calendars would be fabulous!  Secured online tools to track hours, receive instant notifications, reminders, etc.                     
Mission Statement: Kansas City Hospice House provides medical and nursing care for patients facing advanced illnesses, as well as emotional and spiritual support for patients and their families, all in the comfort of a beautiful, homelike environment.

 

 

kidsandcars

Kids and Cars

Needs: KidsAndCars.org has been collecting data about nontraffic tragedies for over 10 years and entering the information into an Excel spreadsheet.  We know there are better methods for entering, analyzing and managing these data but do not have the resources to do so. Technology can help us to be more efficient and effective in our work to save the lives of innocent children.
Mission Statement: KidsAndCars.org is a national nonprofit child safety organization dedicated to preventing injuries and death to children in or around motor vehicles. 

 

 

harvesthome

Harvest Home Inc.

Needs: Harvest Home currently does not have a database; all work is done manually.
1st need - Membership database for mailings and email marketing.
2nd need - Harvest Home has a very large community garden where they will freely share food with those in need throughout the greater Kansas City area & surrounding cities. However, some of the food will be shared with those who can afford the fresh produce at a suggested donated price. All donations help sustain the garden. We need to be able to track the volume of produce, donated dollar, participating partners, volunteers, and materials needed to support the garden. If there is time, I'd like to be able to better keep garden records (time of plantings, fertilization, watering, etc). We grow our food naturally and use Heirloon varieties (no pesticides, etc). 

Mission Statement: We believe that no one is too poor or insignificant to be loved and valued!
Who are we?:
Harvest Home, Inc. is a Not for Profit 501 (C)(3) organization founded by Danny and Rhonda Calhoun in 1995.
What is our vision?:
Our vision is to lead primarily women and children who are in crisis to the Father by demonstrating His unconditional love.
What do we do?:
We reach out in friendship armed with food, clothing, and other necessities to those in need. Our heart is to love, not only with words, but also in deed. The Lord has given us Our Father's Farm, which is a place of refuge for those seeking help. By providing a community of life-changing ministries we offer the opportunity and necessary support to transform lives and restore hope.
Our reach extends throughout the greater Kansas City area and surrounding cities. Our books and CDs have been purchased around the world. We host local conferences and often speak at national and international conferences.
"And those who are most helpless will eat, and the needy will lie down in security." Isaiah 14:30
