As a Community Development Guru I am committed to positive community economic, social and political change.
I work with client groups and agencies to find the best solution for making your community development ideas successful. With over 30 years of community development consulting and project management experience I work to ensure that my agreed upon approach considers all angles. Basically, whenever you have an community development idea, or project I work with you to produce a strategy to make that idea work.
As a Community Development Guru I believe in the power of collaborative partnerships as a powerful way to improve our communities. I also believe that in order to improve our communities, we must all work together to solve problems.
As a subject matter expert at developing collaborative partnerships I have successfully worked with representatives from neighborhoods, communities, faith based organization, HBCU's, social service organizations, grantmakers, city, county, state and Federal agencies to build consensus and building strategic alliances. I'm experienced in developing community development plans, special projects and program to address community needs throughout the United States.
Partnerships: As a Community Development Guru I have developed partnerships at the neighborhood, community, city, county, state and Federal levels where people have worked together to improve their communities.
As a Community Development Guru I have extensive experience working with community partners, grantmakers and governmental agencies to develop comprehensive community development plans that work.
Urban communities with challenges and promise require new approaches. I can help you and your organization or government agency convene stakeholders to identify and execute sustainable community solutions.
