Thurston Climate Action Team
Confluence facilitated a short Strategic Planning process to launch a first ever full strategic plan for this volunteer driven community action organization dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Thurston County.
Pierce County Council
Faith worked with The Athena Group to conduct a county wide assessment of language access and interpreter services. Work included extensive research on emerging best practices and building equity through access.
Partners in Prevention Education (PiPE)
Confluence worked with PiPE to engage the whole organization in the development of a 5 year Strategic Plan. Confluence is also helping to develop metrics for tracking PiPE’s client engagement. Using Appreciative Inquiry, we helped strengthen relationships, share stories, and create a fresh vision for the team while also identifying multi-level goals for the future.
NW Ecobuilding Guild
Confluence worked with this amazing organization to help brainstorm organizational tools around fundraising, development, and staffing.
Thurston County Public Health and Social Service
Faith was contracted by Thurston County to manage the 2020 Point in Time Census of homeless persons. Each year, this federally mandated count attempts to ascertain who is homeless and why. Faith designed and built new training materials, engagement processes and frameworks for the 2020 effort, bringing the Count the earliest and most accurate count to date.
Olympia Community Solar
Confluence worked to help this new nonprofit develop a logo, website, branding and organizational structure. We are deeply committed to working towards a clean energy future, and are honored to be a part of this effort.
Confluence worked with Backbone Campaign to help build organizational alignment around a strategic plan. Moving towards the future is what Backbone has always been about, and we are excited to help them vision all the possibilities.
Richard L Bowen and Associates
Faith worked with a team to do a 3 day culture intervention using Appreciative Inquiry. Organization wide effort to identify and address tensions with employees and with leadership. Highly successful with increased engagement in just this short time.
Empowering Youth, Exploring Justice (EYEJ)
Faith worked with a Cleveland based team to imagine possible futures for a social justice nonprofit on the cusp of major changes. We succeeded in giving the client real options for her next move. I was also able to consult with the Executive Director beyond the scope of the larger group effort, and help align her board development and troubleshoot a possible merger.
