Woodlock & Associates


National Action-Oriented Experts in

Health and Human Services.

Our new world requires different leadership approaches.  

For the past 100 years, the nonprofit mission was sufficient to support continued operation and growth.  In our past the "why" and the "how" were intrinsically linked to government funding. As our field moves away from government contracts promising stable income towards a more retail, performance based environment our "how" is changing. 

This is generational change, where strong nonprofits will be more and more supported by value based purchasing, performance contracts and managed care.  The shift from providing services to delivering outcomes (value) represents a change in our social contract with nonprofits.

Delivering solutions with strategy and operational know-how.

Being small enough to give personal attention

We are not a big-box consultation firm.  This gives us the flexibility and space to work with smaller nonprofits or to play small roles in big project.  


Many nonprofits started out as religious organizations or settlement houses doing “God’s Work.” In the 1960’s President Johnson created a need for nonprofit expansion and role change with the advent of the Great Society. As government-extenders, nonprofits began to do “Government’s Work.” Our pursuit of the Triple Aim today is leading to a more retail approach to health and human services. Nonprofits today need to move from doing God’s Work or Government’s Work to Retail.
