This is the second in a series of posts celebrating Waterstone clients and colleagues from the past ten years.

Culmore Clinic

Recognized by the Catalogue for Philanthropy as one of the best local nonprofits in the DC area, the Culmore Clinic has provided basic healthcare services to low-income adults in the Bailey’s Crossroads community at little to no cost since 2007.

In 2013, I volunteered to help launch a counseling services program at the clinic, and as a consultant in 2015, I conducted a needs assessment and facilitated a staff training to inform process improvements for the clinic.

Every year, the Clinic hosts a wine tasting fundraiser at the director’s lovely Alexandria home. Check their website to learn more.

National Network for Youth

The National Network for Youth (NN4Y) has been advocating tirelessly for homeless youth since 1975 through a framework of eight compelling guiding principles.

In 2015, I collaborated with the executive director to develop a stakeholder survey to inform new key messaging for the organization’s website, social media, outreach and guiding principles. The following year, I returned to facilitate a visioning session with the board of directors to refresh NN4Y’s core purpose, values, vision and mission statements. The board was on fire with ideas as we settled on statements that would serve as a platform for their work moving forward.

Alliance for Housing Solutions

The Alliance for Housing Solutions (AHS) was founded in 2003 by Arlington citizens concerned about the high cost of living and invested in making Arlington a place for everyone.

In 2017, I worked with the executive director to overhaul the AHS website by archiving and refreshing content and transitioning to a new design and content management platform. Coordinating efforts with the organization’s graphic designer, I set up email newsletter templates to align with the new visual identity. The result was a cohesive brand identity that the organization can rely on for years to come.
