Partnerships

Collaborations, partnerships and collective impact are all still big buzz words in the nonprofit sector.  Our philosophy at SHG Advisors: no one can solve the world’s problems alone. We must work together, and SHG Advisors have years of experience in creating partnerships, as well as finding the common ground that satisfies all parties who are working toward the same goal but have different agendas. 

An example of our past work:

Situation:

  • Public-Private entity released an Request for Proposals for a program to train local residents in a specific industry
  • No entity existed that could meet all requested services

Approach:

  • Partnership of 3 nonprofits, 4 private sector companies and one government agency was created to address recruitment, all facets of training (i.e., life skills and trade specific), job placement, evaluation and retention
  • Memorandum of Understandings were developed and regular check-ins were held to ensure that all partners were satisfied with services and their experience thus far

Outcomes:

  • Cohesive working relationships established between community-based support services and employment partners
  • Existed for over 5 years and successfully placed hundreds of people in living-wage jobs
