In early 2015 the White Bear Area Emergency Food Shelf was facing a great deal of organizational change: new space, high demand, new staff, and many long-time veteran volunteers. A board member reached out to SCC for guidance in working with systems that hadn’t kept pace with the growth and change along with increasing stress on staff and volunteers.White Bear Area Emergency Food ShelfLearn more..
“SCC worked with the Friends in Need Food Shelf to develop a Strategic Plan that helped us move forward in a much more intentional way. They also developed an e-newsletter template that we could easily use to connect with our donors and they produced a very high quality brochure for marketing.”
-Michelle Rageth, Executive Director, Friends in Need Food Shelf

HOPE 4 Youth is a drop-in center serving youth experiencing homelessness. SCC helped the young but fast-growing organization transition to the next level by providing an interim executive director; moving toward transitional housing in addition to programs for youth; transitioning to a governing board model from an operational board; teaching the organization and board how to be a flourishing nonprofit organization; putting roles, responsibilities, policies and procedures in place; and hiring an executive director.HOPE 4 YouthLearn more..

"Working with SCC, I was able to realize my own potential and am now directing several homeless youth programs here at Pillsbury House. They helped me to see my own potential to grow from a competent youth worker to someone who was capable of managing and directing a successful program with a sizable budget."
-Matt Tennant, Street Survival Director, Pillsbury United Communities
Before consulting with SCC, the environment at Hennepin County's Waiver Finance team was filled with controversial and toxic communication that resulted in delayed services, lack of services, and denial of services for eligible waiver recipients. The team now has better communications that have led to transparent collaboration with partners to make processes more efficient.Hennepin County: Waiver FinanceLearn more..
