Opening Rooms, Rides, and Hearts with Tech

Article

After you are evacuated from your home, where do you go? Relatives may be fleeing too. Hotels fill up fast. In September 2017, that question was on many minds as people in Florida tried to escape the path of Hurricane Irma. But for our affected employees, their co-workers had an answer.

Our teams in nearby Atlanta collaborated to create an internal digital listing of homes for rent for the Comcast NBCUniversal family. Those with living space to share could list their homes as options for their teammates in need.

Amplifying the Call for Help

Article

To truly make a difference during a disaster, we know providing information — from the latest weather updates and best evacuation routes to tips for people staying in place — is just step one. Step two is action. Our 2017 news coverage emphasized the magnitude of the challenges faced by people in affected areas. It also helped mobilize citizen action as we connected viewers with relief organizations offering financial and logistical aid.

Opening the nation’s eyes to the dire circumstances, infrastructure damage, and human struggle was vital to rallying support.

Fast Forward Helps Technology Nonprofit Shift Into High Gear

Article

While working at a Bay Area nonprofit in the mid-2000s, Rey Faustino routinely took low-income students on tours of major technology companies.  He wanted the students to consider tech fields after high school as a path out of the housing, employment, and health care uncertainty that plagued many of their families.

But by the end of each tour, Faustino had more on his mind than career counseling.  He was thinking about the power of technology to connect people.  More specifically, the power of technology to connect his students to the services they desperately needed.
