Our innovative, integrated approach uses a facilitated dialogue framework to reimagine systems that are comprehensive, equitable, and accessible. We invest time with stakeholders to listen, build relationships, open hearts and minds, and foster change. We partner with local champions to invite participants into a respectful and facilitated space which results in open and honest—and sometimes challenging—conversations. We engage stakeholders in speaking from the full range of their experiences, listening fully to one another, developing a shared vision, and committing to working together to achieve that vision. When conflict surfaces, we guide discussion from debate to understanding and explore deeper reasons why an issue is important to all.
Our team offers decades of experience as individuals in recovery, clinicians, leaders, researchers, facilitators, and agents of sustainable systems change and interdisciplinary collaboration. We prioritize meaningful involvement and leadership of people with lived experience to enrich our work with unrivaled passion and real-world wisdom. Our work is person-centered, trauma-informed, and recovery-oriented with a deep commitment to promoting racial justice and reducing inequities. Our goal is to build deep relationships with our partners and achieve your mission together.
