Work in the Community

Here at One Floor Up we’re fortunate enough to work with a huge assortment of non-profits, businesses, and governments.  We love the variety of work these diverse organizations bring in.  It means that every day we get to work on a completely new challenge, reaching a different audience, and disseminating a completely different messages. 

Editing video, creating complex animations, and weaving a compelling storyline requires lots of time at a desk.  But we’re not in a cubicle farm, and this isn’t your every day, mundane desk job. Instead, we’re fortunate enough to work on passion projects for clients making a real difference in the communities around us.

I’m Going Places

For more than 35 years, Arapahoe House has been a champion for families and individuals with alcohol, drug and other behavioral health issues.  The non-profit organization helps more than 15,000 members of the metro Denver community find help, hope, and healing from addiction every year.

One Floor Up is proud to be involved with imgoingplaces.org, a community collaboration managed by Arapahoe House.  This project is a campaign in Adams County aimed at middle and high school students and the adults they interact with.  They’re helping to dispel myths about drug and alcohol use among teens, and a whole lot more.  Take a look at some of the videos we’ve collaborated on.

 

Goodwill Industries of Denver 

You probably know them as the place to find new-to-you dish ware, funky sweaters, and deals galore.  And don't get me wrong, they are every bit the glamorized shop in Mackelmore's chart topping single.  Go there with friends and you're bound to have fun, find something (or ten things) perfect for you and at a great price. Goodwill is also an amazing organization having an impact in communities around the country.  Most people who shop at their stores probably don't know about all the work they do for our community.  Goodwill provides education, career development and employment opportunities to help Coloradans in need achieve self-sufficiency, dignity, and hope through the Power of Work.  Here's just a single look at how we're collaborating with Goodwill Industries of Denver

 

Women's Bean Project 

Since 1989, Women's Bean Project has been dedicated to helping women break the cycle of poverty and unemployment. Women’s Bean Project strives to break the cycle of chronic unemployment and poverty by helping women discover their talents and develop skills by offering job readiness training opportunities.

With this stepping stone toward success, the women will be able to support themselves and their families, and create stronger role models for future generations. One Floor Up has just started collaborating on our first project with Women's Bean Project - we'll share our work soon!
