We are Community Solutions
We are a multi-faceted firm - approaching our work with a results-focused and an anti-racist
and anti-oppressive lens.
We work to co-create change in social conditions for more just and equitable communities. We understand that this work is the “long game.” We are committed to being a part of the solution.
Community Solutions works in collaboration with other community agents – community groups, organizations, and institutions.
We support changes among community agents by increasing knowledge, awareness, and skill of leaders, groups, and teams.
We support changes in population level outcomes by improving our social systems.
Our work is two-fold:
We focus our work in the areas of Education & Youth Development; Public Health & Human Services; Justice, Reentry, & Public Safety; and Community & Economic Development.
Commited to Action
We are in critical moments that will transform each of us and influence how we work in our communities. We believe that how we do our work is as important as the work that we do.
We Commit To
Lead with the values of anti-racism/anti-oppression.
Integrate a focus on equity and inclusion into every piece of our work.
Engage, listen, and evaluate voices of the communities we serve.
Use our spheres of influence to open-doors and create change.
Challenge our clients to investigate and dismantle white dominance in organizational culture, institutions, and systems.
Create stronger accountability structures by deepening our relationships with individuals and groups most impacted by inequities in our communities.
This is our commitment to action that expands beyond the moments of now. We know that our words are not enough. We share our commitment because we understand that silence is complicity. We share our commitment because we are a community of people who have come to this work out of a lived ethic for social justice –our lived and learned experiences call us to action.
