"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

 

At CHI we offer the following services, as well as customized consulting services to meet specific and unique needs of any nonprofit organization.

 

  • Research and Assessment – The first step in any change effort is developing a clear picture of the current situation/environment. In depth assessments accomplish this goal. These may include a change readiness assessment, community health needs assessments (CHNA), or capacity assessments. We work with our clients to develop a tailored research design that is customized to meet the unique needs of their community.
  • Community, Coalition and Organizational Development – Large-scale community change requires coordinated action undertaken with an energized and focused coalition. We have ample experience working with various types of coalitions to help them achieve their goals. Whether starting from scratch or reigniting, services include facilitating start-up (stakeholder identification and recruitment, designing governance and organizing structures, evaluation plans to measure progress and success), or assessing and developing interventions to enhance coalition performance and effectiveness.
  • Educational Programs/Grant Writing – Virtually all change efforts require additional skill building. We offer learning and customized skill-building workshops for groups to build new skills and competencies needed to integrate change. Because funding change efforts is a foundational step in the change process, we offer grant writing training and support.
  • Visioning/Goal Setting/Planning – Envisioning a desired future state is a vital stage in the change process.  We facilitate the visioning-goal setting-planning process with organizations and/or coalitions.
  • Large and Small Group Meeting Design and Facilitation – May include one or more departments, divisions, management teams within an organization or a community coalition, to better align your organization and community around a planned change effort.
