Katalinas Communications Founder Joins Nonprofit Community Board

When she is not marketing her clients and their programs, planning events, undertaking public relations campaigns, strategizing social media posts, fundraising, or writing grants, Katalinas Communications founder Theresa Katalinas looks for opportunities to give back.

Theresa Katalinas serves as a volunteer community board member for the Resilience Resource Center.

Helping people – especially youth – build resilience in order to not only survive but thrive under challenging circumstances is a notion that Theresa adamantly supports.

Theresa recently joined the Community Board for the Resilience Resource Center, a newly formed nonprofit organization serving the greater Philadelphia region. The community-centered organization focuses its work on programs that build a strong foundation for resilience skills in marginalized communities.

The Huntingdon Valley-based center offers free and low-cost mental health services, as well as weekly youth group programs, career development training, and weekly community programs in its space, which is safe and accessible for all.

In her volunteer role, Theresa will put her marketing, communication, and fundraising expertise to work. She has already begun researching grant opportunities, soliciting monetary and in-kind donations, and fostering partnerships with companies to help further the mission of the Resilience Resource Center. One such partner is Happen Ventures, a company focused on sustainability. The company’s commitment to keeping good, usable items out of landfills led this woman- and minority-owned business to donate items, such as makeup, food, hand sanitizer and more, to nonprofit organizations.

Theresa looks forward to cultivating this relationship with Happen Ventures, while establishing more partnerships with fellow nonprofit organizations and businesses.

Her background as a professional writer and the owner of public relations and marketing company Katalinas Communications lends itself to this new role. Through her business, which she established in February 2014, Theresa has overseen grant planning, writing, submission, and execution activities for the Bucks County Wine Trail for a number of years. She recently led a pair of fundraising campaigns for Falls Township through its annual Touch a Truck event, as well as Fallsington Library’s gala fundraiser, which generated a combined total of more than $30,000.
