Creating Change

Our Capacity Building services help nonprofits answer the complex questions they face to strengthen systems, make informed decisions, and enhance business practices. Our work can inform a range of operational, programmatic, financial or organizational questions. We help organization’s improve their use of resources, increase positive outcomes, explore options to determine the best way forward, and strengthen the overall capacity to fulfill their mission.

Our expertise lies in working with agencies that are often on the edge of entering a new stage of growth, where an old system no longer works, but new ways of doing business have not yet been defined. To help determine a way forward, we will conduct an assessment of your options that might include speaking to leaders in your given field, conducting focus groups to gather staff or constituent input, researching best and emerging practices, and provide recommendations for the most optimal steps to strengthen your organization. We will also develop policies, procedures, orientation materials and much more to help you document and support the path you choose.

Please call if you would like to discuss a project with us.

“We engaged Community Works Consulting to support our organization through an intensive strategic planning process and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”
