Imagistic launched a site for Ready2Thrive, part of Public-Private Ventures.

According to P/PV, Ready2Thrive serves marginalized men of color often operate in isolation, and without the support and peer interaction that could help them to better serve their participants. Often, these providers work across multiple issue areas, touching fields as diverse as education and youth development, fatherhood, employment, violence reduction, criminal justice, health and civic engagement.

To answer these challenges, Imagistic built an online hub where practitioners can connect with each other and access academic research and policy updates related to marginalized males of color. The site features a directory of research reports, articles, implementation manuals, guides and curricula, as well as a blog that provides a forum for practitioners to share their successes and challenges and for policymakers and academics to present their latest findings in a way that is meaningful and accessible to the practitioner community.

The site also offers a practitioner member directory that can be searched by state and by specialty/expertise and will provide small faith- and community-based organizations a voice through "spotlights" that highlight their work.

The contemporary, compelling looking site was built on a Drupal CMS.
