Families Overcoming Addiction get online!
“We are enormously grateful for the way we were able to be connected with exactly the right person for our needs”
Using HelpTank, Families Overcoming Addictions were able to launch their first ever website with the help of a skilled volunteer.
Families Overcoming Addictions is a fantastic organisation based in New Plymouth gives vital support, information and advice to families of those with a drug and/or alcohol problem. They provide weekly support groups, which help to reduce isolation by meeting with others experiencing similar situations.
They signed up to HelpTank looking for a volunteer to help out with creating their website. Families Overcoming Addictions quickly received an amazing application from Melanie Hall, a Z employee, and the two were matched. Melanie was able to use her two paid volunteering days to build them a website which allows them to better promote their services and reach more people needing their help.
“It has been such a huge help to us to have HelpTank's assistance with this task - which was way beyond the capabilities and financial resources of our group” says Sue Philipson, Facilitator with Families Overcoming Addictions. “We are enormously grateful for the way we were able to be connected with exactly the right person for our needs”
‘Our volunteer, Melanie, worked tirelessly and with great skill and patience to give us a website of which we are very proud.”
