Make Communities supports organizations seeking to anchor their work in long term strategies that create a clear path toward equitable outcomes.

We work with organizations of any type looking to navigate institutional change and sustainability. We also work with place based organizations to define their goals and impacts through a community perspective.

Community based vision plans: Defining the shape and scope of place based initiatives, whether for public space development or collective community development programs

Equitable development frameworks: Participatory processes for determining critical community benefits of large scale change

Strategic plans: Embedding equity across the organizational arc, from vision to tactics

Transition plans: Continuity planning and constituent engagement for thoughtful leadership changes

Equitable program design: Ensuring relevance across constituencies through situational analysis, opportunity and barrier identification, resource allocation, and proactive supports
