Case Studies:  Our Non-Profit Heroes Win

Success stories have a familiar narrative: Our hero, a Christian nonprofit organization, finds itself in a situation which is less than ideal. In the course of ministry operations, the hero organization passes one or more pain points, which trigger a desire for change from the status quo.

At that point the nonprofit leadership boldly steps outside the organization and seeks help from a partner with expertise, experience and perspective, namely, Advocace.

With Advocace on board, the organization begins its quest, the roll out of action steps associated with a plan for action. After careful and diligent work, our hero, the nonprofit organization, along with the help and guidance of Advocace, arrives at  the end of the rainbow, a more efficient, resource-rich, revitalized Christian nonprofit organization.
