We are an organization of world class photojournalists and filmmakers with capabilities to create and artfully compose cinematic films and photographs of meaningful personal stories.  Our stories communicate innovative and effective solutions that empower refugees to be self-reliant and experience a more fulfilling life.
 
Our compelling visual storytelling proves to be an effective and strategic means for nonprofits to promote their mission and a proven solution to build a donor base and successful fundraising. Additionally, for other organizations, our impactful storytelling approach helps demonstrate positive social impact that can be used as an advocacy tool and to attract social investors.
 
HOME Storytellers partners with organizations in various ways depending on the specific situation:
Once a nonprofit organization is selected and vetted, HOME Storytellers sends a team to document their work. We create a short documentary film for them and provide access to all still images. These storytelling assets are a powerful multiplier, significantly raising the amount in fundraising efforts. HOME Storytellers continues to promote our beneficiary organizations through our website and multiple social media platforms.
 
Collaboration:
 
For medium size nonprofits with proven and sustainable solutions that enable refugees’ self-reliance, HOME Storytellers uses a collaboration model. That means that the funding of the project is a shared responsibility.
 
Fee for service coverage:
 
HOME Storytellers also works with foundations, large nonprofit organizations, social enterprises, businesses, government agencies, schools and universities whose programs align with our mission, and who have a budget to support the project. This is a fee-based service.
 
Opportunities include:
 
Create a short documentary film. Humanize and highlight refugee self-reliance solutions with HOME Storytellers filmmaking team who will document your program and create a compelling, artfully cinematic, film.
 
Create an Image Collection. Photographs created by a HOME Storytellers photographer that can be maximized across media platforms, acting as a centerpiece for websites, fundraising, conferences, galas, and exhibits.
