Community Service Outreach
Binary Group and Binarians are fully committed to giving back to those in need and support many national charities, disaster relief efforts, and local non-profits throughout the year. We have made it our mission to help the military and veterans that need special care -- homeless and at risk -- in an effort to end veteran homelessness by 2015.
Friendship Place: Binary is very proud to be a partner of Friendship Place, a DC-based non-profit organization that helps men, women, and families experiencing homelessness or at risk of being homeless. As a sponsor of their Veterans First program, Binary is supporting their efforts to make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families by providing housing, meals, job assistance, and other services. Binarians attended Friendship Place's Annual Fundraising Breakfast in May 2014 to support their efforts to help homeless men, women, and children in the DC area.
Binarians supported Friendship Place's Veteran Outreach event by donating much needed items for Veterans and their families when they are placed in temporary and permanent housing. Karen Vogel, Binary's senior director of marketing, stopped by their office to deliver the donated items.
Binary sponsored the Friendship Place 'Walk for the Homeless' to raise funds that support the DC area homeless and at-risk populations. Donations will support the Friendship Place's programs to empower individuals to rebuild their lives, find homes, get jobs, and reconnect with the community.
"I'm extremely proud of Binary and its employees support for Friendship Place and the work they do. As a Navy Veteran, I've seen the commitment our Veterans devoted to our nation and its citizens, and now, in their time of need, Friendship Place and Binary are reaching out with a helping hand. Thank you for making a true difference in the lives of our Veterans." - Michael Brown, RADM, USN (Ret)
Walk for the Homeless: Many Binarians participated in A-SPAN's Rosslyn Walk for the Homeless on October 16, 2013 to support their programs..
A-SPAN provides life-sustaining services for Arlington's street homeless population, many of which are homeless veterans. Binarians raised over $2,000 to help support A-SPAN's programs that provide shelter and support services to this vulnerable population group.
Binarians put on their running shoes to support the American Red Cross' Oklahoma Tornado Victim's Relief Fund in 2013. Binarians walked, ran and biked a total of 13 million steps for charity (that's 6,664 miles)
in one month during our "Crawl, Walk, Run to Better Health" competition. A donation of $1,000 was made in honor of the winning team - Sultans of Speed.
When Hurricane Sandy hit the Northeast, Binary Group took immediate action and extended their mobile-enabled application, HomelessConnections™, originally developed for the Department of Veteran Affairs' Innovation Initiative, Project REACH, to help victims and relief workers locate temporary relief services, in the hardest hit areas of New Jersey and New York. Binary was able to quickly update our scalable platform in just days, including adding additional capabilities rapidly to support the needs of Sandy victims:
- Information was collected, accessed and maintained for temporary critical disaster-specific services such as shelter, food, clothing, warming centers, and emergency coordination locations
- Text-enabled search to enable those with no Internet access to immediately identify nearby services by zip code
Binary's adaptable solution can be redeployed quickly for subsequent disasters and Binary is committed to supporting future relief efforts where needed.
Hurricane Katrina: Binary Group made a significant donation to the Katrina Relief Fund. In addition, a Binarian with expertise in wireless technology took two months off to provide technical support to first responders in Mississippi and Louisiana.
Toys for Tots: Binary Group organizes a toy drive to support the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program every holiday season.
Habitat for Humanity: Many of our Binarians support Habitat for Humanity by giving their time and donations to help the homeless and those that need help with their homes.
