What We Do

organizational development services

Indigenous organizations face challenges that can be overcome with the right assistance. ONABEN provides a variety of customized services to support CDFIs, business development centers, tribal economic departments, and other economic development organizations. We help our clients respond to challenges and realize opportunities that will help them best serve their communities and improve quality and delivery of services.

Drawing on our diverse expertise across a variety of topics, our team works closely with clients through a comprehensive assessment process in order to create a customized plan. As we travel with organizations towards success, they begin to have a profound effect on the overall economic vitality within their communities - becoming spearheads for economic growth and impacting rural job creation and retention. The organizations that we assist create local entrepreneurs, community services, and tribal businesses, as well as develop the infrastructure and knowledge that leads to solid and culturally-appropriate governance, legal systems, commercial practices, and community-focused financial management.

If you have questions or are interested in having us create a custom quote for your organization, please call us at 503-968-1500 or email us today. We look forward to hearing from you and exploring how we can support your work in Indian Country!
