David Busby Centre

David Busby Centre

BACKGROUND

The David Busby Street Centre is a grass roots not-for-profit organization that provides support for community members that are experiencing homelessness and poverty or maybe at risk of becoming homeless.

 

Things we worked on:

BRANDING, WEB DESIGN, PRINT MEDIA, ADVERTISING, MARKETING, PR

 

We have been fortunate to work with Rhubarb Media on an ongoing basis over the past 5 years.  They volunteer their time and expertise to support; the rebuilding of our website, www.busbycentre.ca, the design of printed materials that are used to support our fundraising and our communications and awareness building campaigns.  All of the support we receive from Rhubarb Media assists in the organic development of a brand that presents a consistent message in all of our social media, printed materials and outreach programs.  In many instances these materials are used to connect with donors and members of our community enabling us to increase the contributions that go directly to serving community members that are supported by the centre.

Chad Ballantyne, owner of Rhubarb Media, has often shared with our organization that we need to shift our focus from a ‘flies in eyes’ world view point to a view point of sharing a story about the needs of individuals and their journey to maximize their potential.  Chad works diligently with the staff at the David Busby Street Centre so that we have been able to easily shift our communication strategy to reflect a positive message of the hope and support that we provide to individuals and families experiencing homelessness and poverty.

To quote Chad directly, ‘…we have to start at home by empowering our children to believe that we can never be great by ourselves but that greatness is measured by the quality of life we make possible for everyone else.’

Pregnancy Resources Centre

Pregnancy Resources Centre

BACKGROUND

The Barrie Pregnancy Resource Centre opened in December 2006 to provide support and assistance to anyone facing unplanned pregnancy or pregnancy related crisis. BPRC is a non-profit, charitable organization, supported by individuals, businesses and churches.

BPRC is a Christian organization. We are absolutely convinced that there is a God … and that people matter to God. Your life is so precious to Him. You might never have thought about God or why you exist. But sometimes facing a difficult situation causes people to think about spiritual questions. If you would like to find out more about God’s care for your life and situation, we are always happy to share. Please know that although we are happy to talk about spiritual matters, there is no pressure or expectation to do so. Our focus is caring for you.

Our support has helped feed families

Background

The Barrie Food Bank’s mission is: to provide temporary food relief to individuals and families of our community who are in need, and to serve as a resource to guide them along the road to self-sufficiency. Their policies are designed to achieve this mandate. To this end they seek to encourage self-sufficiency. In their service of those who come to them for assistance, they strive to demonstrate compassion and respect for their dignity, and to serve as a source of encouragement.

How we served

In 2011, Barrie Food Bank realized they could better achieve their goals by better communicating with their supporters. Up until then, their interactions had been through traditional channels like radio and newspapers. Rhubarb Media sponsored logo, website and other design needs for Barrie Food Bank, which helped the Food Bank increase funding exponentially. This improved the Food Bank’s ability to meet the 48% increase in usage over the past two years, with more than 32,000 families being served in 2013. The immediate positive impact of families being fed will also have an immeasurable impact on how well these families can function and then give back to the community in the long-term.
