Godolphin, TCA launch mobile application Cómo for backstretch workers, farm employees


Godolphinand Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA) jointly announced Thursday the launch of a mobile application for backstretch and farm workers.

The app, called Cómo, connects Thoroughbred industry employees to the vital services they need through a network of chaplains and Thoroughbred industry organizations.

由Godolphin赞助的JOCKEY俱乐部信息系统设计,并由TCA管理,Cómo提供了Chaplains和Industry组织的能力,成为应用程序的内容创作者或“贡献者”。贡献者可以上传有关其服务和资源提供的信息,或者可以为当地的服务提供商提供建议。

服务提供商类别包括医疗保健,牙科服务,移民援助,宗教服务,心理健康咨询,ESL课程等等。目前有22个类别,其中贡献者可以为行业工作者提供资源。

“Cómo is the result of extensive industry research, including a survey of farm and backstretch workers, which began when Godolphin took a hard look at the needs of our industry’s workers,” said Katie LaMonica, Godolphin USA’s Charities Manager. “What we found is that our industry provides vital resources and services through various organizations, but what was crucially missing was the workers’ knowledge of and ability to connect to those resources. Cómo exists to bridge that gap, and in doing so be a tool for those critical service providers in our industry.

“Godolphin is fortunate to have a partner in TCA, who has been diligently developing the app with us and will continue to successfully manage Cómo going forward. Given the depth of the research and the time it has therefore taken to develop this app, we are excited to finally release it to the industry.”

为了找到资源,行业员工在他们的智能手机上下载Cómo应用程序,然后遵循最靠近他们的贡献者。然后,用户可以访问它们可用的区域资源。用户可以从应用程序中致电,电子邮件或文本贡献者。要了解有关如何下载和使用Cómo的更多信息,请注意这一点视频.

“The Cómo app has allowed for immediate delivery of pertinent information regarding chapel events, activities and programs for the backstretch workers at Emerald Downs,” said Chaplain Gilbert Aguilar. “The app provides an opportunity to address the spiritual needs of our workers with such features as a daily biblical devotional.

“Additionally, the social needs of the backstretch workers can be facilitated with employment, educational and other resources and referrals to professional service providers.”

“自Cómo成立以来,蓝草农场慈善机构已经利用该申请将肯塔基州中部的农场和轨道工人联系,当时有食物,安排健康检查,家庭计划是如我们即将到来的圣诞节活动节目,“蓝草农场慈善机构Julie Berry执行主任说。“我们已经获得了积极的回应,并且重新确保了解信息直接给骑兵。当使用Cómo应用程序时,我们正在建立信任。“

“Cómo是一种工具,可以将Chaplains和Industry NonProfits与他们所服务的行业人员联系起来,”TCA的erin Crady执行董事艾琳Crady董事表示。“在Cómo的许多功能中,它允许快速转移重要信息。无论是天气警报,健康状况通知,还是我们看到今年的通知,赛道封闭通知,Cómo为我们的行业员工提供了一种寻求和收到可能需要的信息的方式。“
