Health, Families & Finances

We work with people in their homes, schools, community meeting rooms in banks and libraries, and other convenient locations. We provide information that people need to solve a problem and build community capacity. We assist community groups with facilitation and strategic planning. Our work ranges from one-time transfer of information, such as by phone or email, to multiple educational efforts that can transform people and their communities.
