“…. you are doing great work with us. You have an amazing way about you that makes people feel safe and comfortable. You really have a gift for this work. Thank you, Deb!”

~ Lissa DiMauro, Associate Director, Division of Community Services, RI Department of Human Services

“The Center for Human Services at the University of Rhode Island is a resource gem for organizations, offering a diverse range of terrific developmental services. The Center has a unique set of professional growth arrows in its deep and diverse quiver of capabilities. They deliver many exceptional and tailored professional services for the organization seeking to improve its talent base, their contemporary skill sets, and delivery capability. The roster of stellar professionals employed by the Center includes top-notch process and planning consultants, crack evaluators, extraordinary strengths-based coaching and superb training assistance over a wide set of topics and needs, just to highlight a few of its assets. It truly is a treasure trove of professional assistance for achieving higher levels of success and growth for any organization’s most important commodity…its people.”

~ Gene Knott, PhD ABPP, Author, Executive Coach and URI Professor Emeritus

“The Center has earned the respect of Departmental staff at all levels enabling them to work very effectively with us to enhance operations through improved communication, professional development and organizational development activities.  They provide current research and trends…as well as suggested evidence-based programs. They have a unique ability to listen to divergent opinions and help us build consensus even on the most sensitive and difficult issues.  They are intuitive, pragmatic, and responsive and have a talent for facilitating even the most challenging meetings.”

~ Janice DeFrances, Director, RI Department of Children, Youth and Families

“Dedication, partnership, reliability, competence and perseverance are words that come to mind when I think of my partnership with the Center for Human Services. Excellence and teamwork have become symbolic of the Center’s contributions at the training and organizational development level.  At the training level, the Center has stood side by side with the Child Welfare Institute and [it’s clients] to tackle challenging tasks related to improving and expanding supervisory and administrative practices through specialized training interventions.  At the organizational level, the Center’s work has gone a long way to promote excellence…coordinating, implementing, documenting and using information to inform ongoing system change.”

~ Tonya Glantz, Director, CWI

“I cannot say enough about the quality of insight the Center brought to our work [on a federal grant].  They had tremendous impact on the positive outcome of the professional development training for our faculty and administrators.  Our ability to acquire subsequent funding was strongly influenced by the Center’s partnership with us.”

~ Pamela Rohland, Director, Disability Services for Students, URI

“Having such great facilitators made our work [with a diverse, passionate group of people] much easier.  The facilitators were well prepared and kept us on task and goal oriented.  I would highly recommend the URI Center for Human Services.”

~ Barbara Martin, Director, Urban Core Family Care Community Partnership
