Strengthening organizational systems

NOTE: I’m currently tied up with a revitalization effort to keep Community Partners in Caring from closing. Except for short planning sessions, I am not available, but happy to refer you to another consultant.

At CL Consulting Group, we are passionate about helping nonprofit organizations strengthen their organizational structure so that they can grow their resources and expand their services.

I’m Vilma, the founder and principal consultant for CL Consulting Group. I have an MBA in Organizational Behavior. I’ve done organizational development and capacity building work for almost two decades. I’ve worked for nonprofits, private companies and for county agencies.  Today, my work focuses solely on the needs of nonprofits.
