Campaign for Affordable Housing


How We Work
Each relationship begins by listening and learning all we can about our client’s mission and goals. Together we define success for the project; set short- and long-term goals; hone target audiences; and identify trends, issues, and opportunities to get the word out. Then we develop communications strategies tailored to our clients goals and budget, and messages and outreach to win hearts and minds.    

Integrated Planning
Our team includes experts in guiding organizational change. We help clients integrate communications, fundraising, and programs to leverage program initiatives and budgets.
Communications Audit
We evaluate existing communications and marketing materials and recommend ways to increase their effectiveness.
Audience Identification
We help clients get a handle on target audiences, what they value, and how to best reach and inspire them.
Message Development
We simplify complex ideas. We conduct research to frame and test core messaging, then help clients get the word out.
Marketing Materials
We write, design, and publish fundraising case statements, brochures, newsletters, annual reports, websites, and special reports.
Media Campaigns
We publicize our client’s cause through press releases, talking points, speeches, blogs, and media outreach.
We offer planning, production, and promotion for conferences and fundraising events.
Strategic Alliances
We build networks to leverage visibility and credibility for our client’s cause.
