» About N Street Strategies

About N Street Strategies Based in Washington, DC, N Street Strategies offers management and operational support to the nonprofit community, improving efficiency and enhancing impact, from the grassroots to the boardroom.

It takes its name from an area in Washington that in the 1970s and 1980s was the epicenter of a new, passionate social movement. A community of diverse individuals – religious leaders, activists, students and more – united for the common good, using their collective strength to address many of the city’s most pressing problems: poverty, homelessness, hunger and disease. With creative tactics and a profound sense of mission, these individuals worked tirelessly to serve others and to make their city a better place.

The legacy of this community inspires N Street Strategies today – enhancing the work of nonprofit organizations of all kinds. By drawing on a breadth of experience in program delivery and organizational management, N Street Strategies helps nonprofit organizations focus on what they do best, achieving their mission and objectives, by providing systems and support for a sustainable impact.

We focus on the business, you focus on the mission.
