With these big projects, you get highly skilled support to keep on advancing your mission. All projects are participatory because your staff and clients are the specialists and all work needs to be sustainable for long-term success; these services are not “drive-through” service.



Small Projects

Empower your lean staff teams and program clients with refined programs and administrative practices.

Would your organization benefit from a simple refresh with the support of highly skilled specialists?All projects are participatory because your staff and clients are the specialists and all work needs to be sustainable for long-term success; these services are not “drive-through” service.

{Secret} Coaching

Shhhh… we’ll help you to get to where you want to be. Dr. Alfaro only partners with junior and mid-career professionals working in community-based organizations. This is not executive coaching. That is, there are many career, organizational, and sector-specific dynamics that nonprofit professionals figure out along the way, BUT {Secret} Coaching supports you in moving past the learning curve faster and more joyfully.

We partnered with Anchoring Success to refresh the design of our three programs and to develop practices to measure program successes. Dr. Alfaro understood our vision and mission for serving children , youth , and parents living in extremely challenging circumstances. Dr. Alfaro has done an outstanding job keeping the program design and evaluation work authentic to who we are. We will be using the tools that Anchoring Success developed not just for coordinating and evaluating our programs but also for communicating with new volunteers, staff, and funders. This has been such a great experience. Richard Burrell

Executive Director, Live Again Fresno

Dr. Alfaro worked with my team to refine two program structures — a re-entry program and volunteer program. She focused on leveraging my organization’s existing strengths and the talents of my staff team. She also honored my team’s authentic client-centered approach and made sure to help us to measure and celebrate our program impact. Dr. Alfaro is organized, prompt, and we work with her as if she was a member of our team, providing mutual feedback which was received well. It’s hard to find partners that are passionate about the work without having a big ego about it. Coreen Campos

CEO, Focus Forward

When working with Morghan I felt as though I had invited an expert from the community to be part of our team.  Her ability to connect with stakeholders, structure studies that incorporated context-specific engagement strategies, and summarize so plainly the results of our work was a tremendous asset.  She is one of the most skilled researchers I have ever worked with!
