How to work with us
Have us do it for you, or come learn with us. We offer both full service and DIY options.
Working with Pieta Blakely was a joyful and productive experience from start to finish. We were looking for a consultant to help us evaluate our project and help us discern how to grow in alignment with our mission. From the initial meeting, we were drawn to Pieta’s experience in justice organizations and thoughtful approach. Pieta listened to our complex story and teased out an effective path to measure our strengths and opportunities, then partnered with us with grace and skill as we set out a measurable strategy for the future. Through Pieta’s research, we learned useful information about our constituents’ needs on which we have based our project priorities. Thanks for asking us such deep questions!

Project Hope engaged with Pieta Blakely at a very exciting time for our organization and as we were making a strategic change within our programs. She quickly understood our needs, she was flexible and open and quite knowledgeable about the direction we were going. As a result of our work with Blakely Consulting, Project Hope was able to make an important programmatic change and engage in the types of planning needed to ensure success. Staff are still talking about the "data walk" that she engaged our team in and how eye-opening this was!

I help mission-based organizations measure their impact so that they can do what they do well. I started my nonprofit career as a teacher in workforce development and adult basic education. It was important work and I was worried that we didn’t really know if we were doing it well. In the process of trying to answer that question, I got a Masters in Education and a PhD in Social Policy, and became an evaluator.
