JANSON SUPPORTS MASSACHUSETTS NON-PROFIT SHELTER WITH $10,000 GRANT

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, JANSON is honored to announce its $10,000 grant to Natick, MA-based nonprofit Family Promise Metrowest (FPM) for their Shelter program. 

“JANSON is honored to be able to extend our support to Family Promise Metrowest,” says Janet Chihocky, CEO of JANSON. “In every state where we conduct business, JANSON searches for local entities who share a similar mission to ours – making an impact in the lives of others. We are thankful to have found FPM in Massachusetts and have the ability to bless their community.”

FPM’s cornerstone Shelter program serves families with children that have lost their housing, providing safe shelter, meals, clothing, and supportive case management so families can address the root causes of their housing instability and set goals for future sustainability.

Like most areas and shelters, the shelter has been put to the test during the pandemic. FPM skillfully pivoted its programming to remote services and successfully raised emergency funding to bring immediate relief and stability to the families that were currently being served. In 2020, FPM served a record-breaking 50 families, including 58 parents and 89 children that were facing homelessness.

“FPM is currently on track to double the number of families we served last year. Increasing our resources and community support is essential in order to meet the great need.  We are so grateful for JANSON Communication’s generosity,” said Susan Crossley, Family Promise Metrowest Executive Director.

Family Promise Metrowest serves low- and moderate-income Massachusetts families with at least one child under the age of 18 that are facing homelessness. With the help of a diverse community, FPM provides resources, guidance, and encouragement to help motivated families meet their goals, move themselves out of poverty, and become self-sufficient.

Successful Partners TMGL and JANSON Form 8(a) Joint Venture: JAN TECH

New cooperative entity will be well-positioned to help Clients modernize their facilities, engage virtually, and meet future workforce requirements.

Elkwood, VA — May 17, 2021 — TMGL LLC, a Native Hawaiian Organization (NHO) 8(a), and JANSON Communications, a Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB), today announced that they have formed a Joint Venture called JAN TECH that will combine their collective strengths and complimentary talents into a single 8(a) entity that can better support the Defense and Federal clients as they face new shifts in workforce expectations, technology, and stakeholder requirements.

TMGL and JANSON have been working together successfully as prime-sub partners for the past three years on numerous contracts. Each company will continue to operate and grow as separate entities but when government contract opportunities can leverage the strength of both companies, the JV of JAN TECH would be brought forward.

JAN TECH will specialize in offering best-in-class strategic communications solutions, virtual environments and engagement solutions, AV & IT, and facilities branding solutions for the DoD and Federal agencies. “JAN TECH is effectively a force multiplier by bringing together two proven and committed companies that have common and also different skills,” says Phil Bower, President, JAN TECH, who also serves as President of TGML and is a former U.S. Navy captain.

More recently, JANSON has brought to market a device-agnostic, customizable 3D virtual environment that allows for a feel-like-you’re-there, human-focused experience during remote meetings and interactions. This leading-edge tool makes for a much more seamless, engaging and productive virtual meeting, conference, training, briefing, or other event rather than the mind-numbing “heads in little boxes” experience of most remote solutions.

Janet Chihocky, Executive Vice President of JAN TECH, who also serves as the President and CEO of JANSON notes that “In addition to communications, outreach and facilities modernization opportunities, JAN TECH will be uniquely positioned to help with the growing trends in not only 3D virtual environments but also workspace upgrades, which are likely to be in big demand as employees are asked to physically return to work as the COVID pandemic begins to subside.”

 “Leaders recognize that they are dealing with reticence on the part of employees to return to the office after a year of working remotely,” said Chihocky. She went on to say, “many of them recognize that the workforce has a different set of expectations today of the type of work environments they need to be as inspired and productive as possible.”

Janet Chihocky Launches “The Communications Podcast”

Janet Chihocky, Founder and Chief Branding Officer of JANSON, today announced the launch of her new podcast, The Communications Podcast with Janet Chihocky. The Podcast focuses on topics such as The 3 S’s Required for Growth, the Communications Value Bridge, the 4 P’s of Promotion and a host of discussions geared toward business owners and working professionals.

Understanding communications is a vital skill. A dedicated and award-winning public speaker in high school, Chihocky says she “fell in love with communications” at a very young age. “I realized how much I enjoyed motivating people and the impact of value-driven communications,” she says. This love of communications led Chihocky first to join the corporate marketing team of a growing aerospace company, and then at the age of 27 to found JANSON, the premier company specializing in physical, virtual, and digital communication solutions for military, defense, and federal customers.

Growing A Business In Tough Times
Like many business owners who start out with nothing more than an idea, Chihocky learned the how-to’s of running her business the hard way – right after 9/11. Handling a split with her business partner, putting her house on the line, even facing down bankruptcy – her prayers and her passion for helping people bring their missions to life kept her going.

19 years later, the lessons she learned have allowed JANSON to weather the pandemic without even applying for a PPP loan. “I’ve learned a lot from success, and I’ve learned even more from failure,” says Chihocky. “In this podcast, I want to share the tips and tricks and values that I’ve learned about how to look at communications and the pursuit of your mission from a very realistic and applicable perspective.”

A New Look At Communications
Communications is the art of translating your experience into the specific value you bring to the person or organization you are helping. Chihocky calls this “walking the value bridge,” and she has dedicated a full episode of the new podcast to exploring it.

JANSON Has Record Year of Giving – Helping Nonprofits in the Regions Where the Company Conducts Business

JANSON announced today that the company had a record breaking year of giving.

Janet Chihocky, Founder and Chief Branding Officer of JANSON, announced today that the company had a record breaking year of giving. In 2020, the company donated $20,000 to Strong Foundation Ministries, a San Antonio nonprofit; $10,000 to Lutheran Ministries, a Burlington New Jersey nonprofit; hours of pro-bono work for the Loisann Hope House in Fredericksburg, Virginia – a nonprofit dedicated to helping homeless children and families from the City of Fredericksburg and surrounding areas; the Capital Area Food Bank and more.

“JANSON has been involved in outreach and worldwide missions since I started the company. With the negative economic impacts realized in 2020 throughout so many areas, I felt led that we needed to launch a larger and more formal program whereby we plant a seed of blessing to local entities in every state where we conduct business,” says Chihocky.

The Director of Strong Foundation Ministries, Mr. James Gipson said: “My wife and I did not know who Janet or JANSON was. We didn’t know what to expect, but we visited and showed her around our facility. I believe that the Lord put it on her heart to get involved and do what she has done.”

“Loisann’s Hope House is grateful to JANSON for the work they did on our behalf in 2020,” said Lisa Crittenden, Executive Director. “Specifically, the team at JANSON designed a beautiful annual appeals brochure and supporting materials that perfectly captured our vision and message as the region’s oldest and largest family homeless shelter. Thank you, JANSON!”

JANSON is in the process of identifying additional nonprofits in Alabama, Georgia and Massachusetts where JANSON has business underway. The company connects and meets with each of the organizations to ensure that (1) they are as passionate about their mission as JANSON is about its mission, (2) that they are dedicated to serving the needs of others and, (3) that the majority of the giving goes directly to the cause.

The regionalized giving is in addition to JANSON’s worldwide giving. In 2020 the company gave tens of thousands of dollars to other programs such as a classroom and furnishing projects for a Bible College in Nairobi Kenya or the I Am Jesus Project, a companion to the Bible that highlights the sermons and miracles of Christ in a remarkable word picture and action of the narrative. Chihocky believes that doing more for others is one of life’s greatest blessings.
