Strong, vibrant, and responsive social service organizations not only depend on operational resources and funding, but on the capacity to articulate and pursue their mandate and mission. In our experience, organizations flourish when they have a strong consensus regarding the values that guide their work, access to strategic knowledge and information, and an understanding of how they fit within the context of community needs, assets, and partnerships.
Taylor Newberry Consulting has extensive practical experience in working with organizations to meet their strategic knowledge needs, via local needs assessments, community based research, evaluation capacity building, and strategic planning.
