Community Services
& Non-Profit

Increasing demand for services, government funding challenges, and growing competition for funding dollars continue to pressure non-profit organizations to adapt and be innovative in order to serve their clientele.


Framework is engaged to assist with setting and achieving consensus on strategic direction, developing distinctive market positions, identifying and implementing clear, achievable actions, elevating the performance of Boards and renewing governance models, aligning programs and services to the strategic direction and diversifying revenue strategies.

  • Children, Youth & Families
  • Seniors
  • Health and Wellness
  • Foundations
  • Corporate Community Investment Strategies
  • Special Populations
  • Violence and Abuse
  • Social Enterprise

Some of the organizations that Framework has been proud to work with include:

Wood’s Homes is a multi-service, community-owned and operated children’s mental health centre, helping families for over 100 years. 

Framework designed and facilitated multiple strategy renewal processes at Wood’s Homes over fifteen years, incorporating significant internal and external consultation. 

Core planning teams, with representatives from across the organization, sought input and validated strategy components with internal stakeholders throughout the process. Consultation with a range of stakeholders including current and past clients, parents, funders, service delivery partners, neighbours and other service agencies were conducted to fully understand the changing external environment and needs and expectations from an external perspective.

Led and/or supported Board development efforts including Board and CEO succession planning, clarifying board roles and responsibilities, updating governance practices and bylaws, Board performance assessments, facilitating Board development retreats and identifying risk management issues.


Framework worked with the Management team at Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation over the past decade to implement a strategic planning process and conduct several updates of the strategic plan.

Assessed organizational effectiveness, developed principles, new organizational model and implementation plan to transition to a new organization structure aligning strategic priorities, investment priorities and accountabilities. Developed and supported the implementation of balanced scorecard performance indicators and targets.

Momentum partners with people living on low incomes to increase prosperity, and inspires the development of local economies. 

Framework developed and implemented several cycles of a strategic planning process with Board and staff to renew the organization’s multi-year strategic plan.

Efforts focused on:
  • Gaining a common understanding of the environment the organization operates in
  • Confirming Momentum’s mission, vision and guiding values
  • Clarifying implementation strategies
  • And positioning the organization for long term sustainable growth
