Community Solutions, Inc. is a multi-faceted firm that uses a results-focused approach to deliver program development, organizational development, system re-design, evaluation, and fund development services to an array of clients from the public, non-profit, philanthropic, and private sectors.

Community Solution's Commitment to Action

Our city and our country have seen a large and appropriate response to the killing of Black Americans –George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Dreasjon Reed and countless others – by police officers.  The ongoing demonstrations to the horrific tragedies are ensuring that politicians, lawmakers and everyday people know that change must happen.

The escalation of violence against Black Americans alongside the knowledge of the health disparities resulting from COVID-19 on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color has brought to public light what many have already known (and have already been fighting).  We must be set on the path to dismantle oppressive systems to move forward justice and lasting community change.

At Community Solutions we have been developing an Equity Centered Community of Practice with the vision that it will guide everything we are and everything we do as a company.  But life is not waiting for us to be fully developed – life is demanding action now.  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.  Therefore, we commit to:

  • Lead with the value of anti-racism
  • Integrate a focus on equity and inclusion into every piece of our work
  • Engage, listen and elevate the 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 in a movement that extends beyond the moments of now.

We know that our words are not enough.   We share, because we understand that silence is complicity.  We share, 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.

“I just reviewed our documents and I can’t thank you enough for this! The way you packaged the information is perfect. This will be our planning/budget bible! You are quite amazing! What you have helped us do in three sessions would have taken us probably a lot of painful MONTHS to accomplish!”
