Making Our Communities Stronger: Teaming up with Nonprofits to Provide Additional Support During COVID

As our ‘new normal’ continues, our team at Visible continues to look for ways to support our teams, members and communities by extending kindness.

The impact of COVID-19 hasn’t slowed down, and we are committed to providing services during this time to our current members, as well as those who might need some additional support.

Following a contribution to the Colorado Restaurants Association, and an additional $250K distributed directly to over 1000 community members who are doing their part to spread kindness, we’re continuing to extend our #VisibleActsofKindness initiative. In a joint effort with our partners at ZTE, we’ve also donated 1,000 tablets to several nonprofits. These organizations are continuing to provide essential services, and at the same time, looking for new and alternative ways to serve their communities by transitioning their services online. While this will not be able to meet every need, we are proud to stand behind and help support the following organizations, and the communities they serve, during this time:

AllHealth Network — will help connect some of its most underserved clients with technology and connectivity so they can continue to receive mental health services, behavioral health and substance use treatment in the Denver surrounding areas.

Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver — will help its members who do not have technology or connectivity at home be able to access essential Club content and programming that has transitioned to a digital format during this critical time.

City Year — Will be able to connect its AmeriCorps members so they can continue serving as student success coaches virtually and participate in ongoing training and professional development while schools are closed.

Metropolitan State University of Denver- students lacking adequate technological resources will be provided the connectivity and technology to continue or complete their studies as all university classes have been moved online during this time.

Project Pave — in Denver has transitioned its programming and resources to help youth end the cycle of relationship violence to telephone, website, and social media. Families involved with Project Pave will now be able to better access those resources, which include therapy, advocacy and education online, in addition to being able to access other online schools and support resources.

Violence Free Colorado — will provide tablets to Colorado’s frontline advocates, ensuring they connect with victims/survivors of domestic violence to provide essential services like housing, financial assistance and mobile advocacy during this public health crisis.

Wish of a Lifetime — will help seniors across the country avoid isolation by allowing them to connect with and engage with family, friends and online communities.

The safety, comfort and mental wellness of our employees remain of the utmost importance. Our entire Visible team continue to Work From Home and are encouraged to take 1.5 hours per day for their own personal care and wellbeing. We continue to offer an additional suite of support tools and resources to our #TeamVisible employees through our parent company, Verizon. This includes a back-up childcare program that extends financial assistance for childcare services provided by a caregiver of our employees’ choice.

Community, impact and connection are in Visible’s DNA. Now, more than ever, we need each other. Together, we will get through this and every act of kindness counts now more than ever.
