CCP Tech volunteers provide a processes and policy assessment at Veterans Bridge Home to streamline operations and reduce risks
G.A.I.N. – Powered by Lowe’s
Veterans Bridge Home (VBH) connects Veterans and their families, in any state of transition, to the community. Through their network of partners, they help Veterans navigate employment, create social connections, and settle their families. They look at the whole Veteran and connect them to the resources needed to be successful and thriving leaders in our community.
Apparo’s G.A.I.N. (Growth, Agility and Innovation for Nonprofits) Grant Program provides nonprofit participants with the tools, training and other support they need to implement and sustain their technology and process improvements. G.A.I.N. delivers a one-year journey of technology and process improvement to a cohort of nonprofits to help them overcome their technology challenges and amplify their nonprofit impact. Lowe’s generously sponsors Apparo’s G.A.I.N. program.
In recent years, Veterans Bridge Home has experienced rapid growth and increased staff size. The internal technology staff at VBH currently manages technology, and the majority of processes are handled manually. VBH currently has several (6) Technology Policies in place. They would like a thought partner to review current technology processes and provide a policy assessment to identify gaps, risks, and pain points.
Apparo matched the organization with volunteers from CCP Tech who are ready to address and support VBH’s technology challenges. CCP Tech skilled volunteers will work with VBH to review current technology policies and processes to provide recommendations for updates or new policies that will allow VBH to operate more efficiently and securely. Volunteers will review specific technology processes and tools including onboarding and offboarding processes, automation of updates to staff laptops, and Microsoft 365 operations. Ultimately, volunteers will provide recommendations to streamline processes and decrease risks.
