Community Works Consulting has proven to be an effective partner in not only identifying, applying for, and securing financial support, but in helping our organization strategically think about and articulate our value proposition.

My experience in working with Community Works Consulting has been outstanding! Special Olympics Southern California and our athletes with intellectual disabilities have benefitted from their expertise with grant research and writing, as well as strategic facilitation. Carol Hass and her team are terrific listeners and able to assess, process, then position the organization’s needs to attract funders. They’ve helped us raise a lot of money. Plus they’re fun to work with!

Carol Hass is the utmost professional. She is extremely skilled in program design and facilitation as she was instrumental in advancing for First 5 LA the Best Start effort in Central Long Beach. She and Community Works Consulting are excellent thought partners and can manage with finesse challenging and complex programs and initiatives.
Reuben R. De Leon Senior Program Officer, First 5 LA
Community Works Consulting provides comprehensive, solution-focused, client-centered services. I was fortunate to work with Carol Hass and her team on multiple projects that spanned the gamut from an Executive Board of an all-volunteer child advocacy group to a community-based grant-funded collaborative. In every encounter, Carol’s depth of knowledge was evident. Her facilitation and team building skills are the best that I have experienced. However, the skill that I find to be the most important is her ability to maintain focus, regardless of disruptions and distractions, while leading a group to a logical, practical, and efficient outcome. Even in the midst of the most heated discussions, Carol’s calm, confident approach never wavered.
In addition to amazing facilitation skills, the Community Works team provides expert writing, follow-up documentation, and logistical planning. Carol and her team bring the trifecta of important attributes to each project they take on: knowledge, skills, and solutions.
