PMA Consulting, LLC

Children’s Home Society of North Carolina

With up to $6 million in funding from the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation and the Social Innovation Fund, Children’s Home Society of North Carolina (CHS) has been working to expand its Family Finding program throughout North Carolina with PMA as strategic counsel.

“CHS is well positioned to grow and expand its geographic reach and portfolio of services,” says PMA President Patton McDowell. “PMA worked to encourage a resource development staff realignment to meet the demands CHS’s recent mergers had caused.”

As CHS continues to evaluate potential mergers with capital from the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, PMA remains a trusted and reliable resource for the organization.



“We have been fortunate to be able to work with Patton on several projects. I have been consistently impressed with the breadth of his experience and the diverse perspectives of the PMA team. Patton’s work with our board and supporters, both as a facilitator and in a personal capacity, has been excellent. His insight around effective development practices for statewide organizations has helped us prepare for the future.”
