Organizational Development

From idea to execution, HDAdvisors provides nonprofits with the management and operational skills they need to fulfill their missions. Both startup and established organizations alike find value in the experience and efficiencies that we bring. HDA can transform your concept into reality, or provide planning, marketing, training, and event coordination to your established nonprofit. Let us help your organization grow.

Maggie Walker Community Land Trust

In 2016, HDA worked with a coalition of affordable housing providers and advocates to establish The Maggie Walker Community Land Trust—the first and only CLT in the Richmond region. We led the organization's startup and oversaw its recent expansions into Chesterfield and Henrico Counties, along with its designation as the City of Richmond's land bank. With our ongoing support, MWCLT grew from one affordable home sold in 2017 to more than fifty sold or under development as of 2019.

Housing Virginia

For ten years, HDA has functioned as the executive and program staff for this statewide housing policy nonprofit. By hosting conferences, writing policy guides, and convening conversations, HDA has helped Housing Virginia become a leading housing resource in the commonwealth.

 

Examples of work we provide:

Administration

We help start-ups to launch by providing staff support to organizations that are not ready to hire permanent staff. For some clients, long term staff relationships also make sense.

Training

We create and conduct educational workshops for a range of housing and development topics.

Event Coordination

We manage the logistics of events of all sizes from start to finish. 

Marketing & Communications

We design strategies and materials to explain housing issues to a variety of audiences.

Planning

We work with organizations to build strategic and operational plans.

Advocacy

We develop public policy and advance it with elected officials and public administrators.
