Become helps organizations and people within the community come together to form coalitions and work more effectively with each other. We enhance organizational ability by combining programs, expertise, and resources for the greater good. We have three different types of coalition building options tailored to a community's specific needs:
Building coalitions. We bring the nonprofit and community together to move towards a common goal, building a coalition from the ground up and reaching out to other organizations who share their goals
Helping coalitions. We enhance the functioning of existing coalitions by increasing their ability to work together effectively. We achieve this through our program evaluation process, which helps organizations achieve their full potential.
Facilitating collaborations. Become Inc. helps to facilitate the process of organizations coming together for social good. Though our efforts we make sure that diverse ideas are brought out and that the community is given a chance to participate in the conversation.
