Building healthy, thriving communities offers a way forward
It requires a holistic approach. After all, escaping poverty depends on many factors – employment, safe housing, nutrition, health, child care. Our decades of experience across health and human services helps us break down silos between programs to achieve better outcomes.
Person-centered case management
By taking into consideration each individual’s entire situation — including their needs, motivations and barriers — we’re able to help them create a pathway to their goals. We then connect them with the services and programs they need to succeed and become self-sufficient.
Greater coordination of services
When public, private, community and faith-based programs coordinate to serve people better, it increases buy-in from individuals. We help at every step, rethinking outdated rules and even realigning program missions.
Flexible funding of programs
We’ll help you consider new blended and braided funding models. These models can encompass partnerships with other programs and sectors, giving you more flexibility to achieve your goals.

Innovative welfare-to-work approach succeeds in DC
In Washington, D.C., our TANF program engages and empowers individuals, increasing their chances for long-term self-sufficiency. Our approach? Foster personal responsibility rather than force it. We do this by getting everyone from family to the community fully invested – and employing “wrap-around” case management that coordinates many support services, including job training, mentoring, mental health counseling and crisis management. As a result, we’ve been named “Top Performing Vendor” by the Department of Human Services.Learn More
