Areas of

While our projects span a range of topics and issue areas, we have provided the majority of our consultation to helping clients who are focused on impacting people in these impact areas.

Families and Communities

VIVA is passionate about providing the highest caliber services to the organizations that help families and communities thrive. Our strong knowledge of the intersecting services and supports that are designed to strengthen families and communities have positioned us to craft innovative, forward thinking solutions.

Through strategic planning, capacity building, research and analysis, partnership development, communications planning and development, and social marketing, VIVA helps social impact organizations maximize their reach and ensure that their work has a sustainable and lasting impact on the communities they serve.

Early Childhood

The first five years are where it all begins. We are passionate advocates working to build early childhood systems that are as amazing as the babies, toddlers, and preschoolers they serve.

Our experience spans the spectrum of early childhood topics. We also have deep expertise in quality rating and improvement systems (QRIS), child development, and early identification and intervention.

Our early childhood services include strategic planning and implementation, sustainability planning, grant writing, local and regional partnership design and development, meeting facilitation, communications planning, brand identity development, strategic messaging, and outreach campaign design and development.

Health and Human Services

A community is only as strong as its weakest link. VIVA supports agencies and nonprofit organizations that provide public health and social services with innovative strategic support and creative communications.

We start with understanding the needs of the community members being served before developing solutions—such as outreach strategies, learning communities, and non-traditional partnerships—to help health and human services organizations maximize their effectiveness.
