Arc Aspicio Supports Anti-Human Trafficking Non-Profit Organization 

Washington, DC, February 14, 2017 — Arc Aspicio started a pro bono project for Courtney’s House, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the victims and survivors of human trafficking. Arc Aspicio supports Courtney’s House on their priority needs.

The partnership, which started in October 2016, includes an extensive strategy for communications, fundraising, and volunteer coordination. This streamlines Courtney’s House day-to-day business activities and extends the non-profit’s outreach to communities and survivors.

“The partnership with Courtney’s House was a natural fit for us and we are excited to continue making an impact on the fight against human trafficking,” says Despina Panagoulias, an Arc Aspicio manager leading the pro bono project. “Refreshing their website, establishing a better social media presence, and organizing their fundraising and volunteer outreach means that Courtney’s House has a greater ability to save lives and spread the word about the dangers of human trafficking.”

The pro bono support that Arc Aspicio provides for Courtney’s House aligns closely with the company’s mission. Arc Aspicio is devoted to the fight against human trafficking, and the company continues to pursue projects supporting this mission. Arc Aspicio won the GovCon Program of the Year Award for their data analytics project combating human trafficking in 2014.

Pro bono work is part of a broad community involvement strategy that has previously included work with the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation and the Central Union Mission in Washington, D.C.
