CRE was founded in 1979 by Fran Barrett. Her original idea was to form a “resource exchange” among small and emerging community-based organizations in which those nonprofits which had resources or experience in nonprofit management – planning, fundraising, budgeting – could help others which did not. CRE quickly morphed into a “management support organization,” with staff who provided management assistance to emerging nonprofit organizations. Over the years, the work of CRE which has been called technical assistance, capacity building, and consulting, has evolved into a full suite of professional services for nonprofits – consulting, leadership and management development, coaching, facilitation – in a wide range of management and program-related topics.
Today, CRE focuses on community-based nonprofits in the New York City area, regardless of size. We are most widely known for our strategic planning services that help nonprofits align their programs and activities with the outcomes they are trying to achieve, as well as our signature leadership and management development programs.
