Coastal Cloud Celebrates Pro Bono Week with Hand in Paw

Coastal Cloud Celebrates Pro Bono Week with Hand in Paw

Located in Birmingham, Alabama, Hand in Paw is the state’s premier Animal Assisted Therapy provider. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to training animals and their owners to work in therapeutic settings. These teams become specialized in helping people of all ages with emotional and physical life challenges.

Leveraging the Tech

In order to appropriately match animals with humans, Hand in Paw relies heavily on accurate data. It is difficult to coordinate the relationships of volunteers, animals and patients without real-time updates. Form submissions presented the biggest challenge. Prior to their relationship with Coastal Cloud, Hand in Paw had untrustworthy data that did not separate animals and humans. With the help of our team, their Salesforce instance was reconfigured to clearly organize the nonprofit’s information and review real-time data.

“Working with the team at Coastal Cloud was an absolute joy,” said Hand in Paw’s Director of Communications Brittany Filby, “From the early stages of brainstorming our project to the final testing stages, Coastal Cloud listened to our needs, paid close attention to detail and made sure we were kept in the loop.”

Filby added, “A project of this scale would have cost Hand in Paw a lot of money had it not been for their generosity. Coastal Cloud kindly donated their services so that we could have the Salesforce integration we needed and, instead, use those funds to further our mission to improve human health and well-being through Animal-Assisted Therapy. Hand in Paw services are free thanks to generous donors like Coastal Cloud. Thank you from the bottom of our paws!”
