Tier One Partners Teams With Neighbor Brigade in Mission to Support Neighbors in Crisis

Managing Partner Sue Parente Joins Growing Non-Profit's Board of Directors

BOSTON, MA and CHICAGO, IL and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  Tier One Partners, LLC, a full-service public relations agency that offers "all senior talent, all the time," today announced it has partnered with Neighbor Brigade to support the non-profit's mission of growing local volunteer networks to help neighbors in times of crisis. 

Tier One is helping the newly launched Neighbor Brigade on a pro bono basis with ongoing media relations and thought-leadership initiatives to help expand its footprint of New England-based chapters. Tier One Managing Partner Sue Parente will join the organization's board of directors. 

"Tier One Partners is helping us to capture the consumer mind-share critical for Neighbor Brigade's near-term growth and long-term success," said Pam Washek, founder and executive director of Neighbor Brigade. "We're excited and grateful to be working with the agency's seasoned group of practitioners who share our vision of making our communities stronger, more caring places with a ready-made lifeline for neighbors in crisis."

Neighbor Brigade provides a blueprint for local communities to create and maintain volunteer networks to help their neighbors in crisis. A Neighbor Brigade chapter starts with a dedicated Chapter Leader who builds the neighborhood volunteer network. These volunteers are then quickly and efficiently mobilized to support individuals and families who suddenly find their worlds upended due to a temporary crisis such as acute illness, major surgery, sudden tragedy or accident, or at the debilitating/late stage of chronic disease or terminal illness.

"Working with inspiring organizations like Neighbor Brigade contributes so positively to us as individuals and our overall agency culture," said Parente. "Our partners, each with more than a decade of experience, understand the challenges for non-profits in our current economic environment and are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Pam and Neighbor Brigade to establish a solid brand identity and help them accomplish the good they set out to do. It's a privilege for us to put our efforts against their growth and success."
