Engaging Your Church/Organization in Compassionate Impacts

How to Engage Your Organization in Compassionate Impacts

Getting Started
One Body Collaboratives is creating a Pilot Program for implementing collaborative software for the Collective Impacts program.
To participate in the Pilot Program, we need representation for your church or organization on two levels … This can be the same person, or may need to be two separate individuals:

A General Admin Representative - To help coordinate on the general administration functions and communications between us

A Technical Representative – To help coordinate the technical aspects of the database on your end (This person just needs to be Tech-Savvy … Not a programmer)

One Body Collaboratives will provide support in the initial implementation of the software to your church or organizations website, as well as ongoing training and technical support.

Overview of Software
View the 4-minute overview video at www.MeetTheNeed.org; this can be found on the upper left corner of the homepage.  Then, view the 46-minute “How It Works” webinar, found on the bottom on the homepage.

Onboarding Process (30-60 Minutes)
Initial meeting to set up your organization under the One Body Collaboratives city-reaching platform.
Overview of Dashboard (posting and viewing needs) and My Account (approving members.)

Next Steps
Within 2 weeks of the initial meeting, identify any additional staff/volunteers who will be “Administrators” of the software.
Identify 6-8 volunteers who will serve as resources to the needs that are posted.
Practice posting needs and approving members that sign up under your organization.

Full Launch
December, 2017 – Create a page on your organizations website where your members/volunteers will view community needs and create accounts to serve as a volunteer to meet community needs.
January, 2018 – Begin to promote the webpage to your congregations/members/volunteers; encouraging them to create accounts to serve the needs of the community. (Bulletin, E-Newsletter, and Social Media inserts are all readily available to be customized for your organization’s needs.)
