Good news for a good news maker. South Shore Elder Services, Inc. (SSES) and Congressman William Delahunt (D-Massachusetts) honored PR Works, a public relations and marketing firm that specializes in publicity for non-profit organizations, at the SSES’s recent June 1 Open House and Appreciation event.

"PR Works and its principals have greatly helped our mission to inform the public and health professionals of our programs and community outreach," noted Ed Flynn, Executive Director of SSES, an organization that coordinates and provide a wide range of services to elders and caregivers in Eastern Massachusetts.

Flynn added, "Through their special non-profit division, PR Works was able to deliver seasoned advice and marketing services to us deep discounts. Their efforts have made a significant impact and we are sincerely grateful for the efforts, enthusiasm and tangible results."

PR Works founder Steven V. Dubin was on hand to accept handsome citations from both SSES and the office of Congressman William Delahunt. PR Works is a public relations and marketing firm based in Kingston, Massachusetts and serving organizations throughout the U.S.

Established in 1991 and with a modest staff of five people, PR Works launched a Non-profit Division to meet the expanding needs of 501c3 certified organizations who are faced with awareness challenges and limited budgets. In recognition of this dilemma, PR Works discounts their hourly rate by 50% to these organizations ($50 per hour vs. the standard $100 per hour for for-profit companies).

PR Works Reaches Out
In addition to PR discounted public relations and marketing service, PR Works reaches out to the non-profit community by offering a wealth of free, objective information on its website.

How can you generate publicity for your company or organization? A new, informational website aptly entitled provides more than 30 well organized pages of tips including strategic PR planning, news releases, feature story development, media placement, media coaching, newsletters, case studies, grand opening management, product and service launch management, press tours, press conference management, brochure development, advertising campaigns, direct mail, and telemarketing

"The new website,, is intended to provide useful nuggets of information as well as give people a real sense of the power and opportunity of public relations," noted Dubin, Founder and President of PR Works. He added, "We purposely built a website that does less hard selling about our specific services and attempts to share the nuts and bolts of PR with visitors. The Internet provides a 24-hour a day access to vital information and we hope this site becomes a key resource for information about public relations."
