We get it. In our work, some things have to get done. Maybe it’s an annual report you must submit to your funders.

Perhaps it’s a needs assessment that’s a requirement for your Head Start organization. Maybe your board of directors is asking for an updated strategic plan. 

Whatever project is next on your list, our team of #Transformers is ready to support you! We’ll help you improve your systems, report up-to-date data outcomes, grow your leaders, and engage your stakeholders.

Serving As Thought Leadership Partners to Address Top Community Issues


We work with you, your partners and our industry partners to identify what data and information is necessary to support your current and future goals.

We are your thought partner to help you explore an emerging issue, identify promising practices or launch a new initiative. You want to be thoughtful and strategic with your resources – time and money. We pull together and interpret the latest research and trends to understand the industry and make best practice-informed recommendations. We will summarize our findings in a final deliverable, such as a white paper report, case study profiling promising practices, or a slide deck to share internally or with potential partners.

Data Insights

Does your data make sense? Can you assess it to tell your story of impact?

We first determine what are the key questions you want to answer with your data. We then assess the data you have and how it is being collected across all of your different platforms, databases, systems and tools. We create best practices and work with your team so you can more efficiently collect, manage, and use data to work towards your overall organizational outcomes. We will help you make meaning of your data and organize it in a visually appealing way, so everyone on your team can use it to make informed decisions and tell your story of impact. We also expand the capacity of your team to complete program evaluations and data dashboards for your organization or community.

Program Feasibility

Do you want to launch a new program or expand existing services?

We know every new endeavor requires money, time, and resources. You might want to expand your current programs and services into a new geographic area, so you want to understand the gaps and opportunities in a new community. You may also want to launch into a new service market that is underserved. We’ll do the hard work for you! We will complete a community needs assessment to determine the need and demand for your new or existing program, gather stakeholder feedback, and put in a plan to make your endeavor financially sustainable.

Strategic Planning

Without a plan for the future, how do you know where you’re going?

We follow a four-step strategic planning process that brings your stakeholders along to build buy-in, uses data to inform the following steps, and ends with tangible tools and resources to guide your next steps. Through our custom strategic planning process that takes about 6-9 months, you will have a more engaged board and leadership team, learned insights about your organization and the community you serve and a new roadmap for the future.

Collective Impact

Do you have an issue that’s too big for your one organization to solve alone?

Why are some community collaboratives more effective? The fundamental driver of value is stakeholder relationships. Many times community collaboratives fail because there is no agreed upon process of engagement. We use a collective impact approach to bring together various stakeholders from different sectors to tackle your community’s challenges. We will move your community from isolated impact to collective impact. This will lead to a shared vision, combined with informed collaborative action, that results in meaningful, sustained impact.
