Mission and Vision


We empower organizations and communities through strategic partnerships and informed solutions that create positive, sustainable change.



A world that thinks strategically, works collaboratively, and acts sustainably.

What Makes Us Different

When we commit ourselves to work with a community, we become partners in the process. That means we are interested in helping you identify funding sources for implementation, writing winning grant proposals and energizing the stakeholders in the community to pick up the banner and carry it as champions of implementation. We approach each project as a partnership with our clients that incorporate three elements:


We collect and analyze quantitative and qualitative data to understand current activities and historical trends to inform the planning process.


We review current assets, challenges, and opportunities to determine objectives with measurable goals and defined action items.


We build internal consensus around the plan and identify and pursue resources to support implementation.
