Mayowa and Leigh partnered on photo and video. Abby headed up fundraising for PIH (because we do like to raise a few extra bucks for the nonprofit along the way).

Drew put his blogging planning skills to good use in a rapid-fire session with Partners in Housing.
One of Tyler's jobs earlier was to research and find inspiration in ways to visualize data about Parnters in Housing.
In 2-3 words, what comes to mind when you think of the word "homelessness."
Last week we got some interview and b-roll footage. Today, Mayowa has the task of editing it all together into a video that shares the Partners in Housing story.
