Why We Do It

In one word… IMPACT.

Based on your mission, your agency is always making some sort of impact on OUR communities – with limited financial resources. Your program outcomes are not based on your bottom line or dollar amounts – rather your clients’ success.

We understand that social service agencies need good program outcomes to get the dollars needed to continue providing services. We understand that it takes a clear process to collect data to funnel into needed reports. We understand that you probably don’t have the people resources nor the time to build or update a form template to collect that data. We understand that it’s not always easy to “make sense” of the data in those reports nor decide what you can do to improve your numbers.

The eQuip team understands these critical, quality needs in relation to overall compliance with county/state/accreditation regulations and/or grant funders.

Let us equip you with whatever quality improvement tools you need to make an even bigger impact on OUR communities – together.

Why eQuip

We struggled for a while in coming up with a name for this business. It was such an important decision. Your business name is tied to everything. It had to “mean something”.

Of course we wanted “Quality” to be somehow incorporated with the name. So – simply put – that’s what the “Q” stands for in eQuip. (Shocking!)

We also wanted the name to somehow reflect what we do. Essentially, our mission is to “equip” social service agencies with the tools necessary to achieve their quality improvement goals.

Finally, a wise friend of ours once gave some much needed advice and ended with: “So – you go and put that in your toolbox…” – and the toolbox concept stuck ever since.

We all have tools in our toolbox that are tried and true. But sometimes, we need to seek out other people’s tools when we don’t have the right resources to meet our needs.

Hence – eQuip
