A few words from our Founder & CEO, 
Stacy DiStefano

"Over the course of my 25+ year career, I've had the privilege of working with clients nationwide. Large and small, rural and urban, non-profit and privately owned, I've seen the possibilities and the challenges. I've also seen the pitfalls that arise when working with a consultant who views you as a customer instead of a partner. I created Consulting for Human Services to be a different kind of consultancy—one driven by genuine passion for your mission.


Our team acts as a seamless extension of yours. We offer a suite of services, including strategic guidance, board briefings, national trends analysis, M&A support, and fractional C-suite roles to close critical leadership gaps.


Our ultimate goal is to assist your organization in not only overcoming obstacles but also in thriving and achieving lasting success. You can count on us to be your reliable partner every step of the way. Thank you for considering out team today."

Our Values


We limit the number of active engagements to ensure high quality, personalized service with quick project turnaround times. We don’t cut corners here, and we are selective about the clients we accept.


We are a culture obsessed team that understands an inspired workforce and satisfied clients aren’t mutually exclusive. At the foundation of any great business—including ours—is an open dialogue between the client, and our team. Honesty is a core communication principle.


We have a team that promotes creativity and visionary thinking. With 50+ consultants, compared to the "Big Four," we are intentionally small but nimble, surpassing industry standards and providing clients with a unique experience that sets us apart.
