As a year-round shelter, The Delores Project is able to enhance services, providing support for women in securing long-term housing and addressing the other myriad challenges they face.

JohnstonWells has pledged to do something every 40 days from its 40th anniversary on Oct. 1. Last month they delivered 40 muffins to competitor Linhart Public Relations, to thank them for the leadership in public relations. The firm also it doing $40,000 worth of work for the Halo Foundation, an organization in the Five Points area that has after school programs for students who might otherwise go home to empty houses.

“The part that interested us, at first in the Halo Foundation, was its arts programs, but we think what they’re doing goes beyond art,” says Gwinavere Johnston, CEO of JohnstonWells.
