(ROCKWALL, TX — January 24, 2018) The Leadership Rockwall Class of 2018 is seeking sponsors for their class project: “Rockwall Information Resource Hubs” specifically designed to assist families in the community that find themselves in the midst of crisis or transition. The project will see the installation of nine dedicated computer resource stations in existing client service areas at local nonprofit organizations that serve women, children, and families in crisis.
The Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County, Helping Hands, and Women In Need all serve clients and residents in the community that are experiencing untold trials, and need additional assistance in regaining stability in their lives. The workstations will allow clients of these nonprofits to maximize their time during visits by having access to computers that can serve as a pathway for additional resources, submitting job applications, creating resumes/cover letters, applying for additional qualified benefits such as WIC, SNAP, Crime Victims Assistance, VA benefits, and more.
Leadership at each of the organizations has consented to maintain the workstations moving forward.
“Victims of abuse, domestic violence, or those in the midst of life altering situations—all served by these organizations—struggle with limited financial resources, and are forced to make decisions that meet the immediate need of safe and secure housing over expenses incurred for additional amenities like internet connectivity,” said Patricia Mejia, member of the Leadership Rockwall Class of 2018. “This project has the potential to reach over 14,000 residents in our community—friends, neighbors, and classmates.”
The total cost of the project is $26,617, and allows for nine workstations (hardware and software), security cameras, a printer, supplies (paper and toner), and a maintenance agreement provided by My Computer Guy.
Platinum Level Contributor – $12,000
Gold Level Contributor – $8000
Silver Level Contributor – $5,000
Individual Hub Contributor (covers total cost of single hub station) – $3,000
Additional sponsor benefits include:
-Prominence of logo on dedicated plaques positioned at all three workstation locations
-Logo featured on Chamber website as a Leadership Rockwall 2018 project sponsor
-Recognition on grand opening event invitations and materials
-Opportunity to speak at grand opening event
