Stephen Center Amplifies Its Mission with New Podcast
Stephen Center (stephencenter.org) has started a podcast, recorded entirely on their campus with donated equipment, in a bid to break into a medium that is largely untapped by nonprofits. The podcast is called The Help Hope Heroes Podcast, airing on Thursdays and available on all major streaming platforms as well Facebook and YouTube. It focuses on stories of their client’s transformation, other local nonprofits and people making positive changes in Omaha.
Podcasts have been growing in popularity for some time and Stephen Center sees podcasts as an opportunity to engage their audience and donors in a new, more engaging way. They record audio and film every episode for viewers who want a more in-depth experience.
“When it comes to the issues of addiction, poverty, and homelessness there is a lot to talk about. Not only does the podcast give us a way to discuss the issues in depth, it provides clients with the opportunity to tell their stories which can be very helpful for their recovery,” says Michael J. Murphy, marketing director and host of the podcast.
So far, guests have included several of Stephen Center’s former residents and organizations such as Completely Kids, AIM Career Link, and Metro Omaha Medical Society. Organizations are brought on the show at no cost to them as Stephen Center believes it is mutually beneficial to their mission, other nonprofits and the community.
Located in South Omaha, Stephen Center is a sober campus of resources for mental health and addiction services. The clients they serve are the homeless, addicted and those in poverty. Their campus includes a homeless emergency shelter, inpatient/outpatient addiction treatment, and permanent supportive housing apartments for disabled and low-income individuals.
