Nonprofits and Faith-Based Organizations

Carla Boyd one of Danielle's previous clients of The Micro-Business Institute at Pittsburgh Community Services, Inc., under the leadership of Cecelia Jenkins, Executive Director, is an awesome testimony of how working together can help one accomplish their goals.

After completing her Energy Auditing training at The Kingsley Association, she continued working with other organizations such as, Urban Innovation 21 on her business development strategies and won $10,000 in their competion for small businesses. It was such a pleasure to see what she had accomplished!
