As a boutique firm addressing a very specific area of special needs and more generally human services in the field and practice of emergency management, our firm mission and philosophy support an equal split annually of for profit work coupled with pro bono hours to demonstrate our commitment as professionals to our areas of expertise. As such, much of the work we are involved with has a national impact and depth while the exposure is not noted by revenue or accounting alone. We remain true to this commitment and it has resulted in “informal” advising to most of the federal agencies, research efforts, and has even resulted in operational and logistics support in areas such as special needs sheltering, immediate demographic analysis and policy drafting during emergencies.
