Technical Assistance

The WC TA Online is an interactive and iterative process based on the input received from community affiliate members that communicated their priorities for technical assistance. There are five categories of technical assistance: greatest needs, great needs, core needs, infrastructural needs and basic want areas.

Since its founding in 1981, the WC has trained more than 2,600 leaders of grassroots organizations in 39 states, and helped link them to resources totaling more than 10 times what the WC has expended.

This includes more than 70 faith-based and community groups in Washington, DC that benefited from the WC’s extensive technical assistance through the Compassion Capital Fund of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

What Do We Help

The WC’s core Technical Assistance focus areas are Board Development, Financial Management, Human Resources, Information Technology, Organizational Development, Program Development, Evaluation and Data Management, and Resource Development. The Center also links the organizations together as members of the WC's Hands Across Network through which they share information and resources, discuss best practices, and participate in training workshops.

What They've Said

“New Vision [CNE community partner] has helped us move students forward who had given up on themselves. There are no words to express how important this has been. New Vision is our eyes and ears. When the students know you care, it makes a difference. We no longer see the large traffic jams in the halls. The program has moved the kids out of the halls and given us the tools to learn academic rigor. They don’t allow the kids to give up.”

Cecelia McDaniel
Assistant Principal, Southwestern High School, Baltimore

"I have extremely positive things to say about the Violence-Free Zone program. It brings a huge chunk of support to the schools. The Youth Advisors are some of the most talented people I have ever met. We have been trained by the Youth Advisors. They made an immediate connection inside the schools. They are incredible. Their ability isn’t just in the schools, they are in the homes and in the community, so they have immediate rapport with the students. Few adults fill that role."

Dr. John Deasy
Former Chief Executive Officer, Prince George's County, MD, Public Schools

"The Bob Woodson factor will one day be nationally celebrated as the private sector key to effectively battling poverty."

"I want to personally thank you again for your labor of love to those least among us. Your compassion and conviction about serving and connecting people to make a difference is always evident. I am appreciative of the introduction you made a few years ago with Greg Garrison when you invited me to accompany you as a guest on his WIBC radio program to discuss the Men’s Bootcamp. Since, Greg has become a great supporter of the transformational work we do to help save lives, change destinies and restore families, one man and boy at a time. "
