Thought Partnership

It can be helpful to think through approaches and strategies with someone who can help to broaden or hone your thinking. Many organizations find this invaluable support saves time and effort in the long run. We offer thought partnership for issues such as how to develop programming using a poverty and resilience lens, how to use non-oppressive language in communications, or whether the community health worker model might be best for your efforts.
