Butler & Davis Consulting LLC

Services Overview

Our trauma-informed training and consultancy services are designed for organizations to build and sustain a 21st-century workforce – an anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-toxic, anti-bullying, anti- “because it has always been done this way,” and anti- “them vs. us” community relations. We do this by addressing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of staff as well as the organization’s policy and procedures.

Becoming trauma-informed is an ongoing process and is more than just checking a list. This is why we fully customize all of our services to meet your unique needs. Here’s how we can work together to apply a trauma-informed framework to your unique situation.

The inability to capture diverse and multiple stakeholders’ perspectives hurt government agencies, nonprofits and corporate philanthropy agendas. We provide community outreach and engagement se[rvices strategically tailored to identify and reach targeted audiences. Our proactive approach aims to gather input from diverse and multiple stakeholders. By facilitating a feedback loop of communication, we help organizations increase their understanding of their stakeholders to make policies and programs that are effective and efficient. We specialize in working with disenfranchised communities and groups experiencing low socioeconomic status.

Butler & Davis Consulting take programs to the next level by utilizing our extensive and diverse experiences coupled with evidence-based practices to develop and manage social service programs. We design program elements, such as program model, policies, identification of target population, and design accountability measures, which supports system and clients goals. We work directly with clients to set priorities, develop timelines and outline necessary deliverables.
