Honu Advisors, a small business based in Houston, helps social service organizations achieve their missions. We work with non-profit boards to help build effective governance practices, manage transitions and prepare for growth.
Because each organization is at a different stage of growth and impact, each board has unique needs. We take the time to get to know each organization, its governing board, its strengths and its challenges. Using a customized approach, we design board development plans that are both ambitious and practical, with clear implementation guidelines. For those organizations who request it, we can provide implementation support. Please contact us for more information about:

Many new non-profits devote their energies to launching innovative, mission-driven programs. As the organization grows, its operational and governance needs grow as well. Working with members of the staff and board, Honu Advisors helps organizations develop simple, effective policies and processes that further their missions while ensuring effective operations, governance and financial procedures. We offer workshops on the following topics - check our Events page for upcoming dates:
