Chuck Thompson, CBR Youth Connect

Working with JVA has been incredibly beneficial to our institution not only fiscally but also because we have powerful story-telling material that we can use again.  The team was professional, fast, asked critically astute questions, and brought us across the finish line for a few very complicated and important grants.

JVA has been instrumental in helping not only focus our energy into areas that are a good match for our services but has helped us think expansively into areas that the community needs. We’re excited about the prospects of serving our community even better because of their help.
