~Serena Muhammed: Senior Project Director, St. Louis Mental Health Board
It was so helpful to have a skilled professional to manage one of our major grant-funded programs. This freed me up to focus on other organizational priorities with the confidence that our program was in capable hands.
~Orvin Kimbrough: CEO, United Way of Greater St. Louis
We accomplished more in the first few weeks to get our new donor database up and running than we had all year. There are always so many competing priorities for your time. It was wonderful to finally move this project forward.
