True North and Rainbow House, Columbia, Mo.

July 29th, 2011

7-29-11 AI have been meeting so many talented, caring individuals, whose passion for helping those in need, is 7-29-11 Btheir primary goal, Barbara Hodges, Executive Director of True North is one ¬†of those individuals. Barbara met with me and shared the many successes of her organization in protecting victims of Domestic Violence. Her passion is contagious, as her staff share the same excitement for their work as well. Two staff member I met; Jimmie and Margaret are Outreach Education Specialists and raise awareness on campuses and throughout their community. They loved the guerrilla marketing approach I use to get my point across. Brenda another member of the staff was equally interested and thanked me profusely for the “difference I am making.”
There weren’t enough hours in the day and Rainbow House, a Child Advocacy Center I would have liked to stop and pay a visit, didn’t happen. I did the next best thing and talked with Brenda Jackman, Marketing Director at Rainbow House. It was almost as if I was there as she told me of the main 4 services they provide; Children’s emergency shelter, Clinical programs, Child advocacy center and a transitional living program for older teens. This organization is filling the void for so many in Boone county and its 9 surrounding counties.
