Healing the Unknown was created in April 2020 to provide support to individuals facing grief, loss, and economic anxiety.
What it does
During a challenging time of physical distancing, Healing the Unknown creates space for hope and healing through the delivery of biweekly interfaith content and peer support for individuals dealing with grief and loss and economic anxiety. We train volunteers to provide support to their peers and create an outlet for creative expression and healing.
How I built it
Squarespace, Google Suite
Challenges I ran into
Had to change original site name in order to increase organic traffic.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Securing 20 content development, peer counseling, and administrative support volunteers to date. Creating a partnership with CLUE.
What I learned
The importance of SEO before naming a website.
What's next for Healing the Unknown
Growing our user base, as we just launched. We are also still developing our peer support volunteer training around economic anxiety and grief and loss. We will host our first virtual event on May 1st with CLUE. In July, we will decide on next steps regarding organizational incorporation depending on community growth at that point.
