Anne helped communities to develop and expand basic needs services to respond to the budget cuts of the early 1980s, welfare reform in the 1990s, and again with the fiscal crisis in 2008-2012. Her consulting has helped build interagency networks in many communities that provide for more integrated, better funded services. During recent years, she has helped community groups to plan for the growing needs of older adults, and strengthen older adult services. She has helped nonprofits respond to the impact of budget cuts, creating stronger and more effective programs and more diversified funding.  Anne’s planning work with communities has also included working with simulations, which allow community groups to quickly understand and analyze complex issues and trends, develop policies, create funding strategies  — all which build innovative and sustainable solutions.
