Telestream partners with Hospitality House to help more residents in crisis

0

As the number of homeless people in Nevada County increases, Telestream has increased its support for Hospitality House, the leading non-profit housing service provider for Nevada County residents experiencing homelessness. Over the next three years, Telestream will provide unrestricted annual financial support to meet where the needs are greatest, with an accelerated focus on raising street awareness, expanding shelters and creating permanent housing solutions for residents in crisis.

Founded in 2005, Hospitality House began as a nomadic shelter, operating out of churches and relying entirely on volunteers and private donors. In 2006, Telestream CEO Dan Castles learned of Hospitality House’s efforts and recognized the critical nature of the work. The video tech giant immediately embraced Hospitality House’s shelter efforts, and as the nonprofit established its physical shelter in 2013 and expanded into services, Telestream has remained staunch in its support. these many years.

“Telestream has supported Hospitality House for many years,” Castles said. “We have had the opportunity to watch this organization continually transform to meet the ever-changing needs of our local community. We have such a need to provide a wide range of services to people in our community who experience homelessness. They really represent a systemic solution to what is a huge problem in the United States. »



Today, Telestream is a branded strategic partner to the organization, and Castles inspires its staff to get involved too. Before the pandemic, Telestream employees volunteered in the Hospitality House kitchen each month bringing their own food and cooking meals for guests, as well as helping with specialist projects, such as painting the interior shelter, do yard work and participate in camp clean-ups. With the volunteer program temporarily suspended due to the pandemic, Telestream employees have turned to donating funds to help cover food costs at the shelter instead of volunteering their time.

“Telestream’s financial leadership continues to have a huge impact on Hospitality House’s abilities to serve the most vulnerable people,” said Nancy Baglietto, executive director of Hospitality House. “In the past financial year, we have helped 618 unique residents in crisis, including 23 children, but the problem ‘takes a whole village’ and individual donors and companies like Telestream are at the heart of our community’s ability to make measured progress.”



Over the coming year, Telestream’s commitment is expected to help 194 people gain access to emergency shelter, food, clothing and wrap-around case management services.
