Dealing with local and state government can be an intimidating experience if you do not have the information and knowledge necessary to navigate through it successfully. We here at Centro Strategies have the abilities and the institutional knowledge from working in government both locally and our state's level, giving us the experience that can only be gained from working hands-on internally to resolve similar problems to those which you might be facing today. So whether you are attempting to get a conditional use permit for a business that you have established or need assistance in crafting and organizing an advocacy strategy to support or oppose pending legislation, Centro Strategies can be with you every step of the way to help improve your likelyhood for success.
When working with any group of stakeholders, it is important that you have a clear understanding of the history, issues and concerns that they most value to ensure that you are able to best communicate your ideas. In the process, it is also important to have discussions with key community leaders who can better support your ideas and be somebody who can speak on behalf of your idea when the time is needed.
With our experience at Centro Strategies, we have been able to work in multiple communities and be effective in strategic community engagement projects which were dependent on evidence-based research and required a sensitive and cautious approach. Some of the services that we can provide include:
Comprehensive Community Reports - We can gather all relevant data that can give you a clear picture of the make up of the community, such as area demographics (age, housing, gender, education, etc.), historical area research, detailed information on key community leaders and organizations.
Targetted Communications - Using all available communication resources, we can develop and execute an outreach strategy that can maximize your potential for success in delivering your message. Whether it is through traditional mail, email/online communications or door-to-door communications, we can work with you to figure out what's the best outreach strategy to utilize for your needs.
