Client Spotlight: Hosea Helps

Client Spotlight: Hosea Helps

In January 2022, we had the pleasure of speaking directly with Mr. Afemo Omilami , the son-in-law to Hosea L. Williams Sr. and current COO of Hosea Helps. His wisdom, passion and love for the Atlanta community was brightly displayed in our conversation and will be shared below as we inquired about his current work within the Atlanta community through his calling.  

 

When Hosea L. Williams Sr. passed away in 2000, his daughter, Elizabeth (now CEO) and husband, Afemo Omilami  were naturally called to keep the mission of Hosea Feed the Hungry alive. Mr. Omilami shared, “It would take a husband and wife acting as ONE to bring this movement alive. It was our calling; we had no choice.”  

 

And to this day, Elizabeth and Afemo have kept the mission of Hosea L. Williams Sr., Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and many other Civil Rights leaders alive and thriving in Atlanta, surrounding states and in countries abroad.  

Who is Hosea Helps? 

Hosea Helps (formerly known as Hosea Feeds the Hungry) is a historic Atlantan-based foundation founded by Hosea L. Williams Sr.. Hosea was a civil rights leader, philanthropist and trusted advisor next to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Hosea Feed the Hungry was founded in 1970 when Hosea himself began to notice the people on the streets of Atlanta did not have readily available food during the holidays. Hosea led his initiative for 30 years until he passed in 2000. At that point, his daughter and son-in-law graciously accepted the gift to continue Hosea’s mission. Since 2000, the mission has grown from feeding the hungry on holidays to feeding the hungry year-round and even more community outreach in Atlanta and other cities, states and even countries.  

OUR MISSION:  

Our mission is to investigate and then raise public awareness about the many problems that are facing families and individuals that are at risk of slipping into poverty or that are living in poverty, and then to mobilize financial resources, products and volunteers to solve those problems and stabilize those households. 

What services does Hosea Helps offer? 

Hosea Helps offers a wide variety of Human Services to the community of Atlanta and beyond. From Their programs reach from Homeless Prevention, Services for Children, Holiday Dinner Events, Self-Sufficiency programs and US and International Disaster relief efforts.

 

Hosea Helps encourages its giving community to know and understand where their donations are going and how it is impacting the lives of so many.  Sponsoring a program allows you to determine the exact social impact that your financial gift will have. You will have a chance to understand the program’s goals and the communities it will impact. During the program, you can stay connected to outcomes, and get feedback from the people you helped. 

 

Who is Hosea Helps proud to serve? 

Hosea Helps serves many individuals in the community, like Atlanta residents in need, local volunteers and their supporters. These three integral parts of the business is what helps their mission come to life every day. While Hosea Helps partners with companies like Publix, Kroger and other largge enterprises, Mr. Omilami  stated that the “majority [of support and donation] come directly from “regular” people.” And this is exactly what makes Hosea Helps so impactful through its mission.  

How does FoneLogix support Hosea Helps? 

Hosea Helps is very excited to partner with FoneLogix to help the business expand. Mr. Omilami shared that FoneLogix offers peace of mind to them, knowing that they (Hosea Helps) no longer has to worry about data and technology. Through proper data and technology management, Hosea Helps will be able to truly understand what is going on with the families they support, so they can support them further in their mission. Rather than being overwhelmed with information, FoneLogix helped design a suite of products allowing for a more productive and effective way to read data.  

Hosea Helps is also very proud to create a new and lasting relationship with FoneLogix. Mr. Omilami  shared they value creating relationships with their partners and are thankful for the donation that FoneLogix provided to support the local community. 

How has COVID-19 impacted Hosea Helps and the community it supports?  

In early 2020 when COVID-19 was first introduced into the community, Hosea Helps considered closing their doors due to resources and other critical factors. But after much prayer and consideration, Hosea Helps kept their doors open and shifted their operations as needed – and it’s a good thing they did! 

 

Mr. Omilami  shared that COVID-19 helped them “transform into the ministry they always knew themselves to be!” With the uncertainty of the economy, they ended up serving 3-4 times the amount of people than prior, and the services needed also increased. During COVID-19, they’ve helped the community with rent, food/medicine, utility bills, transportation, dinners, lunches for children during at-home learning and more! They transformed their daily warehouse services to drive-through only and continued to increase in volunteer numbers.  

 

“None of us are immune to these challenges. We should never let our pride get in the way… ASK FOR HELP!”, Mr. Omilami  shared. Hosea Helps has been called to serve the community in an even greater capacity than realized during the pandemic. And just like the rest of the world, they have learned to adapt and push forward to better the lives of the people they serve.

When to Upgrade Your Company’s Phone System

Businessman with mobile phone

When to Upgrade Your Company’s Phone System

Text messaging should be used by business marketers to engage their consumers, or to allow their customers to engage the organization. The phones used by your sales and support staff should be able to both, receive SMS and allow your customers to communicate with your sales and support teams via SMS.

Rich Rosen, the Founder & CEO of Fastcall—a leading Salesforce native app for phone, SMS and video and owner of two phone-related patents, recently wrote in Forbes:

“I highly encourage business marketers to engage their customers—or at least allow the company to be engaged by their customers—via text messaging. What do I mean by this? The phones used by your sales and support teams should be able to receive SMS, meaning that you should allow your customer to engage with your sales and support teams by SMS.

 

The business consulting firm Gartner recently reported that SMS open rates are as high as 98%, while response rates were reported at 45%. Email trails far behind with a 20% open rate and a much lower 6% response rate.”

Why is WebRTC a Critical Component of VoIP and UCC?

Professional Developer programmer working a software website design and coding technology

Why is WebRTC a Critical Component of VoIP and UCC?

WebRTC, which stands for "Web Real-Time Communications," is a 2011 technology composed of a set of Javascript APIs, or functions and commands derived from existing code in web browsers. Its goal is to gather data from users and then transfer that info directly to another party.

Austen Read-McFarland recently wrote on the Wildix Blog:

The effectiveness of any unified communications and collaboration solution depends on the working parts inside it. As your organization’s main data channel to customers and colleagues, your VoIP system must have smart technological components to function safely and efficiently.

 

But, how do you determine something so important, especially if you don’t have much detailed technical knowledge? One of the easiest ways is to check if the solution uses WebRTC, a highly effective component for VoIP technology.

 

For the biggest reasons why, this post will take you on a deep dive into WebRTC and how it works.

In this article, Austen discusses:

  • What is WebRTC?
  • WebRTC for Browser Applications
  • WebRTC and security
  • … and more

Client Spotlight: Obria Medical Clinic

Client Spotlight: Obria Medical Clinic

Obria Medical Center

Obria Medical Clinic (formerly known as Pregnancy Resource Center of Gwinnett) is a non-profit located in Lawrenceville, Georgia that was founded over 40 years ago. It provides professional medical care and education for men’s, women’s and families’ optimal health. Obria also offers optimal health education courses in the local community to help support healthy decision-making through budgeting, sexual education, career development and more.

Who is Obria Medical Clinic proud to serve?

Obria serves the local community with a variety of pre- and postnatal care, optimal health education and women’s health services. While the majority of their patients live under the poverty line, they are committed to empowering expecting mothers with the proper care they need to deliver a healthy baby. In fact, Obria is the only clinic that provides free and low cost prenatal care to all of their patients.

 

 

They are able to offer free care to their patients through the kind donations and support from the local community.

 

 

Along with traditional prenatal care, Obria has partnered with March of Dimes to offer group sessions for women with similar due dates to help support the pre and postnatal phase. Their commitment to the community and education speaks volumes to the lives they impact daily, monthly and annually through their services. The education they offer the community includes budgeting, parenting, career, job planning, decision-making and more.

 

 

Obria Medical Center Exam RoomWhen a new mother-to-be enters into care, they are paired with a Patient Care Advocate (that supports with any current external situations) and a Nurse (which supports all medical needs). Their mission is to create a safe and healthy environment for the mother and baby to thrive.

 

Obria delivers at Northside Gwinnett Hospital and has a dedicated OBGYN and NP dedicated to serving their patients.

How does FoneLogix support Obria Medical Clinic?

FoneLogix provides Obria with a new phone system for their office. Some of the key elements of the new system that help their daily operations run much smoother is a dedicated phone tree for patients when they call their main line. This ensures the caller gets to the right person or department without any errors. It in turn frees up the front desk from answering these calls and they can keep their attention on the patients in the clinic.

 

 

Also, Obria staff members now have the ability to customize their own voicemail messages which allows patients to leave messages and for nurses and doctors to return those calls at their convenience. The new system also allows for answering services to be transferred to their cell phones when not in the office, providing the perfect remote solution, which is especially needed in today’s evolving environment. Obria will soon be utilizing the Business Text Messaging services to even further support their business and patients.

How has COVID-19 impacted Obria Medical Clinic and the community it supports?

Obria Medical Center Baby BoutiqueObria Medical Clinic in Lawrenceville never shut their doors during the pandemic. They knew how important their services are to the local community, especially during a time such as this, and continued to serve their communities and families. In fact, they were even busier than normal since so many other clinics and offices were closed. Obria served over 3,000 patients in 2021 despite COVID challenges and saw 118 patients for prenatal care.
