SparrowHawk Consulting Welcomes New Client: Omaha Nation Community Response Team

15 12 2015

We’re honored and pleased to welcome the Team to the family of SparrowHawk Consulting clients.  The Omaha Nation Community Response Team (ONCRT) is a private, non-profit organization that serves the residents of the Omaha Reservation in Northeastern Nebraska.  As a community-based organization, the Team strives to provide quality prevention, intervention, and community mobilization services and activities, emphasizing the inclusion of Omaha culture as the primary protective factor in bringing about positive changes in the community.  The ONCRT works at the grass root level, creating partnerships with tribal programs, the State of Nebraska, local organizations, and community stakeholders concerning a variety of youth issues.

We’ll be engaged to help ONCRT design, implement and facilitate a strategic planning process early in 2016 that will help them chart a course for the next 3-5 years and create context for future funding requests. Welcome ONCRT!
