Since our inception in 1984, RDA has been involved in some of the largest and most innovative human service initiatives in the nation. These efforts have been aimed at improving services and outcomes for mental health agencies, school districts, youth services, and community-based organizations, at revitalizing public housing, and at increasing economic opportunities.
RDA began by using large scale federal initiative grant-writing to create comprehensive systems and continuums of service. We have since evolved into a full-service consultancy that works to strengthen and transform publicly funded systems. From our grant-writing roots, we learned that needs assessment, planning, and evaluation are integral components to maximizing and sustaining progress. Over the past 28 years, we have learned to partner with our clients and their stakeholders in employing an integrated approach that incorporates principles of planning, evaluation, resource and organizational development throughout every project.
RDA is a mission-driven consulting firm. Our commitment to social and economic justice permeates every aspect of our work. We believe that government, when partnered with community based organizations and consumers of service, can and does improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities. Our goal is to work with our clients and their communities to help them articulate, design, fund, implement, and evaluate their own best ideas.
In each project, we collect and analyze quantitative and qualitative data, conduct a systems-level analysis, and anchor our approach in the latest research. RDA strengthens effective, accountable, collaborative service delivery systems. Whether through grant-writing, planning, evaluation, or organizational development, RDA seeks to bring stakeholders together to work towards realizing a shared vision of improvements in services and supports for the people they serve.
